Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Can't access my PS3 (No sign in names)

Yesterday I turned off my PS3 manually. Today I turned it on and it will show the Sony Entertainment sign and then it has the background but no sign in names so I can't access anything in my PS3. This is one of the original products that holds 60 GB and it has not acted weird until now. What is the problem with it?

SOURCE: cANT GET INTO ACCOUNT

Do you see the menu? or is it just blank with the background? as the new update from the network seems to have affected many ps3s. Consult the ps3 site as there may be an update on how to deal with this but i used recovery mode to deal with it when i experienced a similar problem, again i found how to get to it on the ps3 community site:

How to get to recovery menu

  1. Turn your PlayStation 3 off.
  2. Hold the power button until you hear a double beep, then remove finger.
  3. You should be prompted with a screen asking you to press the PS Button on a controller.
  4. The Recovery Menu should load.
The current Recovery Menu supports:

Restart System
Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Database
Restore PS3 System
System Update BACK UP DATA IF POSSIBLE AS IT MAY BE DELETED USING THIS METHOD!!!!!!!

SOURCE: Ps3 freezes after start up

i had the same prob but i fixed it. i had the wavy line that froze right when i started the playstation. but i miraculously fixed it by plugging in the controller to the system, turning on the controller and turning on the playstation by holding the power button after it beeps once, keep holding it until you hear a double beep. then a menu should pop up. click the rebuild hard disk. then it will turn off then do everything again to get to the menu and click restart system on bottom. then it should be fixed

SOURCE: Welcome screen come up then nothing...............

Please try:

  • turning your PS3 SYSTEM ON BY HOLDING THE ON/OFF BUTTON and using the AV cables (red white and yellow, it will restore your audio and video settings).
  • changing your Hard Disk for another one (spec: SATA 2,5'' 5400rpm)
  • taking you Hard Disk off of the system and formatting it in a PC platform .
else, consider taking the system to a assistance center for possible hardware issues checking .

Lately from yesterday when i sign in it shows me message an error has accured u have been signed out of psn (80710092) why?? and i should do? thx


This means you've been signed out of the playstation network. A problem with your broadband, not your PS3. Check the connection of the ethernet cable from your router to the ps3. Then switch off at the mains both your ps3 and your router. Leave for 30 seconds then turn both back on. Wait till the blue lights on your router are all steady blue not flashing red or orange. Then turn on your PS3, go to network settings, then internet connection test. This will check your internet connection, and whether or not you're signed in to PSN, and also your internet download/upload speed.
Hope this helps.

Your hard drive was corrupted. The easiest way to fix it is to place your hard drive in another PS3 and follow the onscreen instructions. You'll need either a usb flash drive or a burned cd with the latest PS3 firmware properly filed.

Here's a link:

PS3 Firmware

Most people mess up on the folder setup.

Make sure you have the folders named in CAPS!
