Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I turned on my PS3 the music plays and it looks like it's about to work, but before it switches from the original default "wavy" background to a downloaded theme, it stops, the waves are still in motion however, and the system still runs. But it also won't allow the controller to turn it on, I have to manually press the power button. But the problem I wanted to know was why this could happen, and if there's any way I could fix it, it would be very appreciated
Okay im not 100% sure but you might of had a bad upgrade if that is possible or just encountered a small problem whilst a system update, installation was being done. Now there might be some justice for you yet, if your ps3 system is updated to 2.50 then you should be able to get into a menu that lets you reset your ps3 to an original safe backed up state, to do this you have to hold the ps3 on button on the console until you hear 2 beeps in this order one BEED two BEEP then BEEP BEEP the 2 beeps together are when you can let go, then connect your ps3 controller to the ps3 through usb, now you have a couple of different options if your ps3 is not updated past 2.50 its worth updating it now, and if it is updated and you have this problem still then i suggeust you restore your ps3, you might lose friends on your ps3, messages and saved data but this will completely refresh your ps3 to an original state,
hope this helps.
