I turned on my ps3 and nothing is happening it is not giving me the option to sign in or anything. just the blue backround nothing else and now it wont let me turn it off.


Sounds like you PS3 software has become corrupt. Follow these steps to sort it but I must warn you, you will lose all your save games!!
Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button when it turns off.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. As soon as you hear the two beeps let go of the power button.
Step 4. Your PS3 will now boot into recovery mode. Connect you controller via USB when asked and press the PS button.
Step 5. Select option 5 from the recovery menu, "Restore PS3 system". This will rewrite your PS3 software and hopefully should sort your problem.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

All i get is a backround no words, no connection for controllers


are you connected with the HDMI cable? DId you switch TVs recently?

You might have the resolution under settings set wrong. so the screen is really tiny. If your remote for the tv has a zoom option, zoom up until you can see the settings to change the output

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!
