Same thing happened to my first PS3 about a week after i got it, except i did not try to install anything. I called SONY tech support to troubleshoot but did not work, they decided to send me a warranty replacement, I havent had an issue with my new PS3. I recommend you do the same

SOURCE: all the connections work the ps3 comes on but then goes black

You may have messed up the Screen-Settings, to solve this try this.

Step 1: Turn off the PLAYSTATION 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

Step 2:

  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).

Step 3:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the Power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button."
  4. Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PLAYSTATION 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
  5. Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.

Step 4
: We recommending performing the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one of the options work, do not continue onto the other options.
  1. Restore Default Settings
  2. Restore File System
  3. Rebuild Database
  4. Restore PS3 System (This will wipe your harddrive, so remember to backup savegames.)

Your video settings could have possibly been reset and if you run something other than factory default you will need to reset it and try again. All you need to do is place your finger on the power button, but do not remove it and hold it until you get the second beep after about 5 seconds. It should boot up and hopefully work. Good luck.

SOURCE: ps3 is not loading just the background,

Sounds like your ps3 needs to be reformatted or to a point its having a problem reading your hard-drive. Reseat the hard-drive and try again, if that doesnt work it could be that your unit has gotten a virus that is going around on the PSN, and the unit might need to be formatted.

Green screen:s


you need to take it to a shop and have them look at the video card and the cables and see if either are faulty. there is nothing you can do on your own.

Try reseting your display. To do this turn your ps3 off if it isnt already, turn it back on and continue to hold the power button until you hear the beeps. It should reset your display if that is the problem.

Nothing comes up on Home Screen?


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

PS3 won't recognize media, i.e. DVDs, games


So your DashBoard doesn't even come up at all? What happens when you turn the PS3 on with the game inside of it? Try using a lens cleaner to see if it is perhaps your laser that is being blocked by dust or something. If nothing works you may need to reload the PS3 Operating System (OS).

My ps3 froze during play and now will not boot up, when turned on nothing happens at all


turn only the power on with the PS3. when you see the red standby light show on the front, press an hold down the startup button on the front until you hear it beep. that will reset the whole PS3 without deleting any saved data.
