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,

1- Disconnect the PS3 from the internet.
2- Turn the standby switch off so the red light turns off too, then you turn the system back on
3- Then place your finger on the power button for a total of 4 beeps to
access the recovery menu. It might not work on the first attempt but it
will on the second.
4- The display will instruct you to connect your controller to the PS3
and press the enter button. A list of menus will appear on your
display. The choices are as follows: Restart System, Restore Default
Settings, Restore File System, Rebuild data base, Restore PS3
5- Select Restore Default Settings.
i had the same problem, i reset the PlayStation 3 video mode (when playstation is off hold the start button till you hear the second beep) and had to hook it up with the A/C cables and it got it working for me
im having this problem right now, when its on press and hold the power button until it turns off( the light is red) then hold the power button for 1 beep then u'll hear 2 beeps then u'll go to a menu where it asks you to plug in a controller but this is where im stuck so you can try experimenting if u want but hopefully someone will find a proper solution
PS3 is one of the most amazing gaming device but like other competitor gaming
devices (Xbox and Wii) It also has some problems like No Display Problme. You
may check out the informative blog post at PS3
I was having the same problem. It was COD WAW causing the problems. I had to restore mine to factory defaults 2 days after I played the game but now everything has been working fine. If you can't see anything to get to factory reset, you can turn your power off on the back and then turn it back on, hold your finger on the turn on switch on the front for about 3-4 secs til you hear 2 beeps and it should come up and let you restore from there. Thats what I done and its been 2mths now and still no problems. I was on the verge of sending it in til I found this solution online. Hope it helps! BTW, i didnt do the full restore where you lose all game saves, just the easy one restore factory SETTINGS!
Whilst the machine is turned on, plug in the usb to the wireless controller and the PS3 should detect it and ask you to press the ps button (center of controller). Do this and you should get a menu, select RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS, and you will have to input time, date etc but it does get machine working again - previous data is lost and you may need to keep trying as machine took several attempts to detect wireless controller - just persevere!!! I tried pressing buttons etc, switching off but nothing else worked for me ... Hope this helps
What you are using is probably an active switch. Many of the movies have macrovision protection. The active switch is having problems to deal with sync pulses from the video containing the macro vision protection.
