Back up your system using the backup utility ( ONLY if you have saved games, pics, video, etc. that you wanna keep)

Go to SETTINGS, SYSTEM SETTINGS, RESTORE PS3

That's the first thing you should try.

Let me know what happens.

My system is win.xp home the game is need for speed carbon. iget no error mess. and i dont know what os is. i click the icon and the game starts to load and the screen goes black and returns to the main...


ello,

Follow the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION.
• Restore PS System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your PS.

Update your PS (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

Take care.

My ps3 shuts down after two minutes. It won't turn on when I press the ps button on my controller. I don't get a blue light at all, and when I do turn it on I get a message that says it was turned off...


when that message appears press the PS button on your controller and your controller will turn on, follow the steps on the screen after shutting it down it should be back to normal, all you have to do is hold the O/I button for 2 seconds, it will turn off after that press the PS buton on your controller and it will turn back on

I put in a BluRay movie and it shows on the menu but when I hit X to play it, the screen goes black and will not play. PS3 games are hit and miss.


It sounds like you are having a firmware problem. This is common with blue ray. You will have to go to the ps3 site and download the firmware upgrade for your system. I think you can upgrade automatiacally if your ps3 is hooked up to the internet. Go to menu settings and look for updates for firmware or divers...

I cant play cod5 on story mode because out of memory.


The memory problem is easy- just buy a new hard drive. You could also save some cash by buying flash drives to transfer data like music and video. Just copy to the flash drive and delete off hard drive (you could do the same for game data).
