trouble shooting ??
  • help...:eek:

    game froze, stopped machine, restarted, gave "error"
    reformat machine, and now it is basically frozen on screen telling me to
    " connect the controller using a USB cable and then press PS button"
    then nothing happens when I press it
  • Try shutting your PS3's power down completely then go into the hard drive bay. Pull it loose the push it back in, making sure it is in all the way. Now turn the system on using the power button on the front, connect the controller via USB and try again.

    If that doesn't work i would suggest calling Sony themselves, they would possibly have some other ideas on what to do.
