Hold the power button untill it beeps three times and turn off.

hold it again until it beeps twice, then two times real quick and let go right away.

select option 3, and it will repair hard drive two times..

and voila!

How to fix ps3 yellow light of death 3. tips first

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work, then there are 2 options left for you on how to fix your ps3 safe and fast!

Send your playstation 3 back to Sony

You might think that this is an great option, but take a look at some statistics. Most users had to wait at least 4-6 weeks before they had their Console back. And also, if your warranty is expired, you have to pay a big fat $150,- to get the job done! Does this still sound as a good option?

Hi and thank you for using fixya:
You said you see a blank menu screen. What are the options on the menu? what do you see exactly. While your console is on press down the power button for 30 seconds to restart to factory settings.
Good luck

Menu wont load up just stays on the screen saver


This is a common HDD error.
Please contact your reseller if your PS3 is in its warranty.

Note: Giving punches in your equipment is a common sollution but a wrong one, because you can damage even more the equipment. I.E: The HDD needle can break or scratch the HDD surface. Also, warranty is violated whan misuse occurs.

Not loading up to main screen


ok go to youtube and type" PS3 REPAIR/FIX" basicly what you do is put the ps3 on standby (the red light on) and then turn the main power off (the back switch) then hold the I/O button in the front (the on switch you use to put on standby) just hold it until it will go to standby then hold the I/O button again (the standby button) and then keep holding it until you hear one beep, then wait for two quick beeps. Then there should be a menu and select "Restore Defualt Settings". If it dosent work CONTACT SONY!
