Precautions
Safety
Observe all warnings, precautions and instructions.
Regularly inspect the AC power cord for damage and for dust build-up around
the power plug or electrical outlet.
Stop use, unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet and disconnect
any other cables immediately if the device functions in an abnormal manner,
produces unusual sounds or smells or becomes too hot to touch.
Contact the appropriate PlayStation® customer service helpline which can be
found within every PlayStation®3 software manual.
Do not use the system or accessories near water.
Do not allow liquid, small particles or other foreign objects to get into the
system or accessories.
Do not touch the connectors of the system or accessories.
Do not expose the system or accessories to dust, smoke or steam. Also, do not
place the system in an area subject to excessive dust or cigarette smoke. Dust
build-up or cigarette smoke residue on the internal components (such as the
lens) may cause the system to malfunction.
Do not expose the system or accessories to high temperatures, high humidity
or direct sunlight.
Do not place the system or accessories on surfaces that are unstable, tilted or
subject to vibration.
Use in a well-lit area and keep a safe distance from the TV screen.
Do not set the system other than in the vertical or horizontal position. When
setting the system in the vertical position, use the vertical stand (sold
separately) for this model of the system. Also, do not change the position while
the system is turned on.
Avoid prolonged use of the PS3™ system. Take a 15-minute break during each
hour of play.
Be careful when carrying the system. If you do not have a good grip, the
system may drop causing potential damage or injury.
Avoid playing when you are tired or need sleep.
Do not move or change the position of the system with a disc inserted. The
vibration may result in scratching of the disc or the system.
Use and handling
Stop using the system immediately if you begin to feel tired or if you experience
discomfort or pain in your hands or arms while operating the Wireless
Controller. If the condition persists, consult a doctor.
If you experience any of the following health problems, discontinue use of the
system immediately. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.
– Dizziness, nausea, fatigue or symptoms similar to motion sickness
– Discomfort or pain in a part of the body, such as eyes, ears, hands or arms
Keep the system and accessories, including cable ties and fasteners, out of the
reach of small children.
Do not connect cables other than a USB cable while the system is turned on
(power indicator lit solid green).
Precautions
This product has been designed with the highest concern for safety. However, any
electrical device, if used improperly, has the potential for causing fire, electrical
shock or personal injury. To help ensure accident-free operation, follow these
guidelines:
Do not touch the system or connected cables or accessories during an
electrical storm.
Do not turn off the system while data is being saved on or loaded from the hard
disk.
Do not stand on or put objects on the system, and do not stack the system with
other devices.
Do not place the system and connected accessories on the floor or in a place
where they may cause someone to trip or stumble.
Do not allow bodily contact with the system or air from the system vents for an
extended period of time while in use. Extended contact under these conditions
may cause low-temperature burns.
Precautions
When connecting the system to a plasma or projection* TV, do not leave a still
image on the TV screen for an extended period of time, as this may leave a
faint image permanently on the screen.
* Except LCD screen types
Parents are encouraged to monitor children in online activities to ensure safe
and responsible Internet usage. Refer to http://www.ps-playsafeonline.com for
further details.
Notes on safety when using the DUALSHOCK®3
Wireless Controller*
Do not use the vibration function if you have any ailment or injury to the bones,
joints or muscles of your hands or arms. If you have an ailment or an injury, do
not play such titles using the DUALSHOCK®3 Wireless Controller unless you
have set the vibration function to [Off].
When using the motion sensor function of the Wireless Controller, be cautious of
the following points. If the controller hits a person or object, this may cause
accidental injury or damage.
– Before using the motion sensor function, make sure you have enough space
to move around.
– Firmly grip the Wireless Controller to prevent it from slipping out of your grasp
and causing damage or injury.
– When using the Wireless Controller with a USB cable, ensure that the cable
cannot hit a person or any object, and do not pull the cable out of the PS3™
system whilst playing.
* These notes also apply to other controllers.
Vents
Do not block any vents. To maintain good ventilation, follow the guidelines below:
Place the system at least 10 cm away from a wall surface.
Do not place on a carpet or rug with long fibres.
Do not place in a narrow or cramped space.
Do not cover with cloth.
Do not allow dust to build up on the vents.
AC power cord use
To help ensure safe operation, regularly inspect the AC power cord. If
damaged, stop use immediately and contact the appropriate PlayStation®
customer service helpline which can be found within every PlayStation®3
software manual.
Do not use a power cord other than the supplied AC power cord. Do not modify
the cord.
Do not touch the plug of the AC power cord with wet hands.
Protect the AC power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at
plugs, expansion receptacles and the point where the cord exits from the
system.
Do not place heavy items on the cord.
Do not place the AC power cord near heating equipment and do not expose
the cord to heat.
Do not allow dust or foreign matter to build up around the AC IN connector.
Before connecting or plugging in the AC power cord, check that there is no
dust or foreign matter in or on the power plug or connecting end of the cord,
the electrical outlet or the AC IN connector on the system rear. If the plug or
connector becomes dirty, wipe off with a dry cloth before connecting.
Unplug the AC power cord from the electrical outlet before cleaning or moving
the system, or when you do not intend to use the system for an extended period
of time. When disconnecting, grasp the power cord by the plug and pull
straight out of the electrical outlet. Never pull by the cord and do not pull out at
an angle.
Do not connect the AC power cord to a voltage transformer or inverter.
Connecting the AC power cord to a voltage transformer for overseas travel or
an inverter for use in an automobile may cause heat to build up in the system
and may cause burns or a malfunction.
Never disassemble or modify the system or accessories
Network
A broadband Internet connection is required to connect to a network.
User is responsible for Internet service fees. For details, refer to the information
provided in your service contract or contact your Internet service provider.
Use only an Ethernet cable compatible with 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX or
1000BASE-T networks. Do not use a cord for a standard residential telephone
line or cables of types other than those mentioned here. Using the wrong type
of cord or cable can cause more electrical current than necessary to flow
through the LAN connector, which may lead to heat build-up, fire or
malfunction.
Wireless networking feature
The 2.4 GHz range of radio waves used by the wireless networking feature of
this product is a range shared by various devices. This product has been
designed to minimise the effect of other devices using the same range.
However, in some cases interference from other devices may reduce the
connection speed, shorten the signal range or cause the connection to be
terminated unexpectedly.
Moisture condensation
If the system or disc is brought directly from a cold location to a warm one,
moisture may condense on the lens inside the system or on the disc. Should this
occur, the system may not operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and
turn off and unplug the system. Do not put the disc back in until the moisture
evaporates (this may take several hours). If the system still does not operate
properly, contact the appropriate PlayStation® customer service helpline which
can be found within every PlayStation®3 software manual.
Precautions
Use the PS3™ system and accessories according to the instructions in the
product documentation. No authorisation for the analysis or modification of the
system or accessories, or the analysis and use of its circuit configurations, is
provided. Unauthorised modification of the system or accessories will void your
warranty. There are no user serviceable components inside the PS3™ system (the
supplied hard disk may be removed but not disassembled or modified).
Additionally, there is a risk of exposure to laser radiation as well as to electrical
shock.
When using the PS3™ system’s scan function to select a wireless LAN access
point, access points that are not intended for public use may be displayed.
Only connect to an access point that you are authorised to use, or one that is
available through a public wireless LAN or hotspot service.
Cleaning
For safety reasons, before cleaning the system or connected accessories,
disconnect the AC power cord from the electrical outlet.
Exterior surfaces (plastic cover of system and Wireless
Controller)
Follow the instructions below to help prevent the product exterior from
deteriorating or becoming discoloured.
Wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not apply insecticides or other volatile substances.
Do not place any rubber or vinyl materials on the product exterior for an
extended period of time.
Do not use solvents or other chemicals. Do not wipe with a chemically-treated
cleaning cloth.
Precautions
Vents
Cleaning method
When dust accumulates in the system vents, remove the dust with a low-powered
vacuum cleaner.
Clean discs with a soft cloth, lightly wiping from the centre
outwards.
Connectors
Do not use solvents, record cleaners, anti-static spray or other
chemicals as these can damage the discs.
Do not use when the connectors of the system or the AC power cord are not
clean. If used when dirty, the flow of electrical current may be obstructed.
Remove the dirt with a dry cloth.
Discs
Note on compatibility
Some media may have region or territorial restrictions and may not work with your
system. See media packaging for details.
Handling
Do not touch the disc surface when handling a disc; hold it by the edges.
Do not stick paper or tape onto discs and do not write on discs.
Fingerprints, dust, dirt or scratches on the disc can distort the picture or reduce
sound quality. Always handle carefully and check that discs are clean before
use.
Storage
Do not expose discs to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight.
When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their
cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to

DVD and PlayStation®3 format software
When outputting DVD content or PlayStation®3 format software in SD resolution,
only discs recorded in the PAL standard will definitely be playable. You may not
be able to play discs recorded for other standards (such as NTSC) on this
system (unless an NTSC compatible TV is used).
A DualDisc is a dual-sided disc that combines a DVD side and an audio side.
Note that the audio side is not guaranteed to play because this type of disc
does not conform to the specifications required for an audio Compact Disc
(CD).
If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable,
video or audio cannot be output from the system.
When you use the AV MULTI OUT connector of the system to connect to a TV,
copyright-protected video from a BD or from video files may be output at
resolutions lower than 1080p. Also, these types of video will be output at
resolutions of 576p or lower if recorded at 1080i (50 Hz) or 720p (50 Hz).
When playing discs with content that was copied fraudulently, abnormal sounds
may be produced or the content may not play correctly.
When playing PlayStation®3 format software in HD resolution, a TV that supports
video playback at 59.94 Hz is required.
To continuously enjoy playback of copyright-protected BDs, in some cases the
encryption key for AACS (Advanced Access Control System) may need to be
renewed. To renew the encryption key, the system must be updated.
DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs
Some discs may not be playable due to scratches, dust, the quality of
recording, or the characteristics of the recording device.
Discs that have not been finalised cannot be played.
Notices
Use only circular-shaped discs with the system. Do not use irregularly-shaped
discs (for example, heart- or star-shaped discs). Using irregularly-shaped discs
may cause a malfunction.
Do not use damaged, re-shaped or repaired discs. Use of such discs may
cause a malfunction.
When using an 8 cm disc, insert the disc in the system without an adaptor.
50
The audio CD playback feature of this system is designed to conform to the
Compact Disc (CD) standard. Some record companies have started marketing
music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies. Some of these
music discs do not conform to the CD standard and may not be playable on
this system.
In rare instances, CDs, DVDs, BDs and other media may not operate properly
when played on the PS3™ system. This is primarily due to variations in the
manufacturing process or encoding of the software.
