Make it look broken

6 replies 337 views Edited Jan 3, 2013

Roommate is a jerk and inconsiderate to everyone else in the household. Looking for a way to make it look like the PS3 is either broken or doesnt register on my HDTV. (not looking to do any actual damage to the console itself)

 

Can anyone help?

How about turning off the auto-sign-in, that way unless they know your password they won't be able to use it?

 

Make sure you know/remember your password before doing this though!

 

You could hide the controllers too!

Also you could take the PS3 power cord with you when you are not there. And you could go to "Security Settings" and have some fun with the "Parental Controls". Change the "Parental Controls" so your roomate can only play "E" rated games and look at "G" rated DVDs and turn off the PS3 internet browser.

Just switch it to use A/V hookups. When he turns it on while it's using HDMI it won't display a picture. Then when you want to play hold down the power button till it resets it.

How about actually communicating to your roomate... Or... leave your PS3 in your room and keep your room locked....

or moving out, or if the apartment is in your name.... kick them out and find a roomate that respects your property (or whatever your beef is).
