Hi there. if you have PS3 Firmware 2.5 you could be in look. there is a System Restore ability on the PS3 which will allow you to restore your PS3 to a working state. and here is how to do it ! :

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.

Home screen shows only backround. No icons


Switch the PS3 off (Red Light). Hold your finger on the power button until the PS3 switches on and off. Take your finger off and hold it in again. It will come on. Hold it until you hear a double beep and take it off immediately. You will then be taken into a recovery menu. It will ask you to connect your controller via USB. Choose option 3 - Restore File System (Do not try any other option as it will erase some or all data on your HDD). It should work after this.

Hope it helps you.

My ps3 won't show anything


hold the reset button to restore your settings do this various times untill you get a screen that has many options read the options and pick the option that says rebuild the hard disk drive. once it gets to 100% sat your settings. then your ps3 shouold be back to normal. the bad thing is that you will lose everything you saved on the ps3 =[

No writing on power up


Update to firmware 2.5 if you can , if your already on v2.5 firmware go to the recover menu and select restore ps3 system (search youtube ) or you can remove the hdd and put it in a 2.5" powered hdd enclosure and try to format by your pc or just take out your ps3 hard drive and then turn it on.
