I turn my ps3 on, and the main menu never shows up. all i see is that wavy thing (that the menu usually shows up over) and nothing happens. then the only way i can turn the system off is by flipping the...
Ok, what you need to do is re-install the system software, I will talk you through it. WARNING! This will erase your save games and other data you have on the PS3!!
Step 1. Turn the PS3 on at the back but leave it in standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later and then once more 5 seconds after that. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep once when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then about another 5 seconds later it will beep twice quickly. When you hear these 2 quick beeps, let go of the power button.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up and ask you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then move onto the next step.
Step 5. The recovery menu will load. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". The console will go through an automated restore sequence and re-write its software. It will then restart and hopefully after you have entered the time, date and username information start normally.
