My ps3 wont show on my tv its a hd connection, all ive got is a blue screen. ive tried holding the power button down til u hear the beeps but still a blue screen. hope u can help


Try using the composite (yellow, red, white) cables that came with your PS3 to verify if it is an A/V error with your Console.

Since you held the power buttons till you heard the beeps, you reset the console to the factory standard which is a composite signal. Wh

If you see a picture, then it is not the console it was the hd cables you were using. If not, then you will have to send in your PS3.

There is no options below all of the icons at the top of the screen except for the settings icon. Then when i click on something from the settings, it freezes up.

Our PS3 suddenly stopped working. The PS3 turns on, but the menu of options such as settings, etc... doesn't appear....just a blue/green screen. Tried other games and DVDs...still nothing.

Says corrupt game files; wont let me play


Hmm... You've already deleted everything and re-loaded it, correct? Did you also wipe the "saved game" memory? The bad file could be in the PS3's internal memory card. So, you'll have to wipe that. If this is still not working, you may have to reformat you entire console. I know that really sucks, but it MAY have to be done as a last resort. In the settings menu, there's a place that says "format hard drive". If you try to "back up" your memory on to a memory stick, I'd recommend against it. Because you might just be putting the corrupted file back into the hard drive! Let me know what you decide to do, bro. Maybe I can be of more help down the line. Good luck, Dempsey!
