Ps3 startup software won't load correctly

When I turn on my ps3 instead of the nice main menu, I get a blank screen with some pixelation on it. I was using an HDMI connection, so I pulled it, put my regular rca cables back on and reset the dislplay options by holding the power button on front of the ps3, and the same happened so it doesn't appear to be a cable issue. Any ideas??? when i turn on ps3 there is no menu options it loads up only 2 of my games and it remains completely blank if i try a blue ray dvd i have a hdmi connection.

Try updating the software

on the left side of the page you can see the update methods.

Give that a try, I would also check your warranty status, is it still covered?

When I'm told the system was not turned off correctly press ok then the screen stays blank


You corrupted your settings. Turn on the Ps3 let it power cycle, once you get to the blank screen hold down the power button until it beeps 3 times (about 25 secs) Your ps3 will shut off( note: if you have HDMI only, plug in your RCA connections as this will reset your ps3 display to analog) once you are back at xmb, plug in your HDMI and go to display settings and select HDMI. Always let your PS3 do its thing before shutting it down, its equivalent to unplugging your computer instead of logging off correctly.

I have playstation 3 and when i turn the main power on ,then it loads the ps3 logo with sound ,but just after that only some almost blue screen is on backround and some white wavy mooving line or...


It sounds like the system software has become corrupted. If you dont mind losing your save games and all other data you could try a PS3 full restore. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on). Press and hold the power button until it turns itself back off. Press and hold the power button again until you hear 2 quick beeps together then let go. The PS3 will boot into the recovery menu. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 system". Let it do its thing and hopefully that will solve your startup problem.

Hope this helps

Blank menu screen ps3


Hi and thank you for using fixya:
You said you see a blank menu screen. What are the options on the menu? what do you see exactly. While your console is on press down the power button for 30 seconds to restart to factory settings.
Good luck

PS3 Connection to TV problems


so, you tried the Video Reset with your standard av cable hooked up...turn off rear power switch, then back on. Hold front power button to turn unit on for 8 seconds or so, which will reset the video settings....unit will give some double beeps letting u know this was successful. then turn off and on again.

Ps3 startup software won't load correctly


turn on ps3 leave on stand by (red light), hold eject button and power button until you hear beeps and a message appears. connect controller and press ps button. system restore screen should appear, select restart system and from there it should restore everything back to normal. This worked for me, for clear instruction go to http://blogallalong.com/2008/12/05/ps3-green-light-on-and-system-wont-start/#comment-31058
