Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I haven't used my PS3 for a couple of weeks, and when i decided tp use it again, it went to the home screen fine, then it all froze and i couldn't select any options.
I turned the console off and on again, this time it loaded to the home screen but only the background loaded, none of the icons came up at all.
I restarted again and the same thing happened, none of the icons came up. It also won't play any disks that i put in the drive.
I'm really worried now, before this it was working perfectly fine.
Does anyone have any ideas of what has happened?
If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:
If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.
It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
