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.

Hello,
The Operating System in your hard disk gone corrupt, you need new installation of Operating System using boot from CD/DVD.
P.S. Formating of Harddisk is recommended, because it seems the act of virus infection
Good Luck

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.

I'm getting an invalid format on my hdmi inputs when i hook up my ps3. It's wierd because it works on my viszo, but not on my new westinghouse or my samsung.


If you accidentally set your PS 3 for 1080p resolution, when the TV can only support 720p, you get a black screen. The Westinghouse TV I used displayed a message that said "invalid format." To reset the PS 3 to the standard AV format, you shut the PS 3 off. Then you hold the PS 3’s power button down for about 10 seconds. It will reset to standard video

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).
