Do you see the menu? or is it just blank with the background? as the new update from the network seems to have affected many ps3s. Consult the ps3 site as there may be an update on how to deal with this but i used recovery mode to deal with it when i experienced a similar problem, again i found how to get to it on the ps3 community site:

How to get to recovery menu

  1. Turn your PlayStation 3 off.
  2. Hold the power button until you hear a double beep, then remove finger.
  3. You should be prompted with a screen asking you to press the PS Button on a controller.
  4. The Recovery Menu should load.
The current Recovery Menu supports:

Restart System
Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Database
Restore PS3 System
System Update BACK UP DATA IF POSSIBLE AS IT MAY BE DELETED USING THIS METHOD!!!!!!!

Hello,

The U.S. PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. The code is from the site not a physical error with your PS3.

YM ps3 doesnt display anything


Put your PS3 in standby mode (hold the power button until the light turns red) then release, and hold the power button again for about 10 seconds, or until the light beeps a second time. When the PS3 restarts, it should display using whatever it finds first.

My ps3 will turn on and it will show the ps3 welcom screen and then the logo goes away and the screen sits there and i cant go any further.


Have you tried "soft reset" - when it's on hold your finger on the power button (on the front) for about 5 seconds until you hear it beep 3 times.
It should re-start after that and hopefully be okay.

If it doesn't then I think it's time to call Sony.

Ps3 turns on but no audio or video


try plugging the standard video scart cable in to see if you get pic and/or sound as this uses a different port to see if you have a faulty hdmi cable
