Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

The screen shows no icons and the controllers turn off

There are no icons on the screen and although the controllers initialise they turn off again almost immediately. Have tried two different controllers. The screen just shows the moving wavy line. Have tried the PS3 on two different TV's and the same happens on both.

    after that the screen says the hard disk's file system is corrupted and loads a bar to presumably purify it. When it's loaded though it still says it's corrupted and i've loaded it about 10 times but it still doesn't work.

My ps3 turns on and shows the wavy background for the home menu screen but no menu icons show up. Nothing on the controller changes anything and icons never come up. The wavy colored background is there...


This problem is because your PS3 software has become corrupt. The following steps will cure the problem but you will lose saved games and all other data. Your trophies will not be affected as these are stored by the Playstation Network.
Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later then beep once more 5 seconds later and then turn back to standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button as soon as you hear these two beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and it will boot into the recovery menu.
Step 5. Choose option 5 (Restore PS3 system). This will re-install the PS3 software and restart the console.
Step 6. When the PS3 restarts you will be asked to enter the time and date and other information. When the setup is complete your PS3 will boot into the home menu normally.

Hope this helps

WHen I turn on my PSP I get a yellow screen/Menu. It has Settings, Camera, Music, Video etc. How do I exit this to play a game?


This is the XMB its the main menu of the system. Games will be located under the Controller Icon. To play games insert a UMD, or if a game is downloaded and saved on the memory card, go through the icons under Controller icon. A disk icon will appear and show a preview screen to the game, press X to start the game.

Home screen shows only backround. No icons


Switch the PS3 off (Red Light). Hold your finger on the power button until the PS3 switches on and off. Take your finger off and hold it in again. It will come on. Hold it until you hear a double beep and take it off immediately. You will then be taken into a recovery menu. It will ask you to connect your controller via USB. Choose option 3 - Restore File System (Do not try any other option as it will erase some or all data on your HDD). It should work after this.

Hope it helps you.

PS3 having problems


try resetting the display (although I don't know if this will help you but worth a shot), press and hold down the power button on the front of the machine until you hear 2 beeps.

Also make sure that all your leads are pushed in fully and you have nothing within range that can distort your picture. (for example if my son uses his remote control car my screen goes flickered, if my neighbour turns on their mower same garbled screen again)

I hope this helps

Changing parental control


Start the PS2 up and load the DVD. When it shows the Parental screen select YES. When the Password box pops up. Press the Select button on the controller. Type in 7444. Then your password is reset. It will ask you to enter another password. Do that twice. Allow the movie to start. When it gets going pause the movie, Press the Select button on your controller again. The DVD menu pops up. highlight SETUP. When that setup screen appears go to the 3rd icon from the left. Press X. Then highlight Parental Code. Set the parental lockout level to OFF.
