Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Not loading up to main screen

My playstation 3 will switch on, but it wont go to the main selection page and it wont load up games. it wont even switch off properly, if I hold the power button it does nothing so I use the main switch. I only get a blank screen and thats it. I wiggled the leads going to the console and the tv to see was it a connection fault but nothing happend. It was working perfectly the night before it happend and I havent experienced any other problems with the console.

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!

Ps3 when i turn it on has a yellow screen and wont load games


Try this:

Turn the console to stand by, you can do this by pressing the power button for 10 seconds.

When it is on stand by (a solid red light shows) hold the power button for 3 beeps, remove your fingers on the third beep which should be a double beep.

This should take you to reset your console. You should see 6 options. Select option 2 then the system will go blank. Repeat the above but this time select option 3.

Your PS3 should work after. 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.

Ps3 wont load games up


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
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 3 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 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.
