I put a game in my ps3 when it started up it said it was loading trophies but it is still at 0 i can see the game in the background but cant get to it please help


You need to try two different things.

1) Restart your PS3 by holding the power button until it turns off, then switch the power button on the back off and on, then reboot the PS3.

If the problem still exists-

2) After restarting your PS3 go to settings>restore factory defaults and your PS3 will be returned to its original settings which should clear up any kind of glitches.

Hopefully this helped!

When i turn my ps3 on it only shows the background. no users.


Hi, this sounds like a problem with your hard drive booting up. This seems to happen alot with the PS3s. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another PS3 and see if it does the same thing. If it does then your hard drive is damaged and needs replaced.

When I turn my ps3 on it just shows the background


Hi, it sounds like your hard drive isn't booting up properly. Try taking it out and putting it in a different PS3. If it does the same thing then you know your HD is shot and you need a new one. Please note that you will be asked to format your HD when you put it in a different PS3 or try to put it back in yours, so be prepared to lose all your data.

PS3 freezing during multiple games


Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.

CANT GET INTO ACCOUNT


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!!!!!!!
