      • You can connect audio devices that support digital audio playback, such as an AV receiver for home entertainment use.
      • Images may vary depending on the model or the software version in use.

        Use an Ethernet cable to connect the system to the Internet.

        Note:

        • You can use a wireless network connection to connect to the Internet without using an Ethernet cable.
        • Do not connect a standard telephone line or other types of cords or cables that are not compatible with the system directly to the LAN connector on the system, as this may cause heat build-up, fire or malfunction.
        • Images may vary depending on the model or the software version in use.

          3. Connect the AC power cord

          After plugging the AC power cord into the electrical outlet, the power indicator on the PS3 system will light up in solid red.

          Note:

          • Some regions and countries may use a different electrical outlet plug from the one illustrated.
          • Do not plug the AC power cord for the system into an electrical outlet until you have made all other connections.
          • Images may vary depending on the model or the software version in use.
