Ps3 reset ok. i know this works, becuase i was able to do it once, based on your recomendation. but the 5 second wait a second then hold again thing isn't working. can you tell me EXACTLY what you do and EXACTLY how long you do it for to get to the reset screen. i reset the files, put in a disc and it was fixed but then the screen just went black when loading the disc info, i'm going to try again

    ok, so i got to the point where i can get to the manual restore page about 75% of the time.

    the thing is, it worked the first time, then froze again. so i'm trying to restore again, and now it won't work.

    is there anyway to COMPLETELY clean this thing out (without waiting 6 weeks to send to Sony) and start from scratch, no settings, nothing on the HD, out of the box, factory settings on EVERYTHING???

Ok, you are actually holding the power button down for too long. Please do the following to sort out the display on your PS3.

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you first press it, then beep again about 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear the second beep. The display will now reset and it should detect your HDMI display with no problem.

Hope this helps

Step 5. A menu will load up. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will format the PS3 and reset all settings back to default.
