    Default PS3 keeps resetting date & time

    My old PS3 80gb phat started all of a sudden to keep resetting the date and time every time it is switch on.

    Do I need to look at replacing the BIOS/CMOS/PRAM battery or could it be another issue?

    It sounds like it needs a new battery.

    The PS3 Phat(and possibly all of them) consoles all use the same CR2032 lithium battery, you can buy this at every Crazy Store at R20 for a pack of two, electronics stores and maybe other shops.



    You'll have to strip the PS3 Phat, right down to the motherboard section to reach it to do the replacement.
