    take the hardrive out, blow on it,blow in the hardrive slot, turn ps3 on without the hardrive in,should then come up and say cant read hardrive,put the hardrive back in, turn ps3 off at the back,then turn on and bits should start appearing, including the time and date, then keep turnin on and off until you get to the log in page. then unplug the av and power cable for approx 5mins, then plug everything back in and switch on, a message should appear hardrive corrupt- rebooting, this may happen twice, then everything should be ok.

My ps3 will turn on and it will show the ps3 welcom screen and then the logo goes away and the screen sits there and i cant go any further.


Have you tried "soft reset" - when it's on hold your finger on the power button (on the front) for about 5 seconds until you hear it beep 3 times.
It should re-start after that and hopefully be okay.

If it doesn't then I think it's time to call Sony.

The hard drive is bust m8, you should remove the drive and take it to a local computer store and ask them 2 format the drive for you. When they come back and say the drive is unreadable ask them what replacements they have, i upgraded 2 a 160gig for £40.

Please fix my psp please


its either your psp is bricked(rendered useless..as entertaining as a brick becuase it wont do anything at all.) or screen came unplugged. try turning it on then turning the sound all the way up and see if you can hear the normal sounds. if you can either the screen is unplugged or ruined. if you cant and it turns off by itself then you have a brick.
