Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I was downloading the first download in play station at home or what ever this beta program is and it froze my play station, so i turned the power off from the back. now when i load up the ps3 it will not get past the splash into the log in i have looked for answers everywhere. this happened once before someone took out batman while the ps3 was off and shut it right back down and the same thing happened my wife said put the disc back into the ps3 so i did and it go to login what a great wife
that said i turned to her and asked how to fix it this time and she said "it was a lucky guess" that said her being prego does not help at all
so there was a game in it at the time
little big planet
i tired a series of things with that nothing
so i put the last movie into the thing tried tried tried nothing still hangs
the remote will not turn the ps3 on it just flashes
when the ps3 is on and you turn on the remote flash flash flash
i took the hard drive out let it sit for five min nothing
i power cycled the unit nothing the network nothing
now i have no idea how to solve this :( :( i am sure it is a very easy fix but i am very new to the whole thing so please help i am calling sony tomorrow and hope they do not tell me to send it in
any help will be great thanks in advance
If you mean you can only log in and you cant play anything i think i have a solution. you said it was because the ps3 froze during a download, to me it sounds like a hard drive problem, this should work but just in case it does not back up all your files to a external hard drive then format your hard drive, and if you dont have a external hard drive like me just save your saved game files to a flash drive, all i had to do is redownload all my games and copy my saved files from my flash drive then i could play from whare i was at in all my games, but killzone 2 will not let you copy your saved file for some reason.

Yeah, sony is going to tell you to send it in. Little bit of advice though, I was reading somewhere to NEVER turn the machine off while a game is running in it from the back. I always go to the game menu and go to "quit game" and then from the XMB menu go to "quit game", then go to "turn off system", then turn the switch off in the back. After reading some of the "horror" stories I don't want to have to pay $$$ to get a new ps3 because of some glitch in the system. But I would if I had too because microsoft sux. I am installing linux on my ps3 right now to see how that pans out, but I think you fried it buddy
