My ps3 has trouble updating games
But you are not supposed to shut it off from the back switch, I know it has broken PS3s for a few users on this forum - and it warns of this in the manual.I don't know what the difference is between a powerout and the backswitch, but I assume the PS3 has some internal power to safely shut off.Kan now one help me Actually mine has lasted through a few for some reason.I have a surge protector though, but mine has lasted through powerouts.

Holding the power button is to set it into stand by mode and the switch is to kill power entirely.Actually mine has lasted through a few for some reason.I have a surge protector though, but mine has lasted through powerouts.It won't harm the system and Sony suggests it so you might as well try.When you've given up your foolish dream of fixing your PS3 with just a push of a button or if you can't afford to pay Sony to fix their mistake you could as a last resort open your PS3 and try cleaning the lens inside.
You can try and repair the PS3 yourself, but then you'll void the warranty once you remove the warranty seal.
