How to Reboot the PlayStation 3


When your PlayStation 3 is unresponsive or is not performing as usual, rebooting it may be necessary. A simple reboot often fixes small problems and gets the console running smoothly again. Unlike computers and some game consoles, the PlayStation 3 does not have a "Restart" button. Therefore, it must be completely shut down before it is restarted. It is important to shut down the PlayStation 3 properly and not unplug it and plug it in again.

  • Press the "Power" button on the front of the PlayStation 3. The power indicator light begins to flash green as the system shuts down.

  • Wait for the indicator light to turn red. Once it is red, the system has properly shut down.

  • Press the "Power" button to restart the PlayStation 3. The indicator light turns green when the system is on.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not turn the power switch off and on to reboot the device. It can damage the system.
