    I'm having the same problem. My PS3 won't load the main menu screen. Therefore I can't sign in to watch a movie or play a game. I think it may of happened because I turned off the system before the most recent system update was complete. Any ideas??

Ok heres what you do when you flip the switch on the ps3

wait for the red light to come on


then hold the power button for like 15 seconds until u hear a beep twice

the system will reset itself like a cpu

and the screen will turn back to normal

this happens when you go from one sd tv to an HD tv all the time


hope this helps

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.
