Froze while updating after reset

My ps3 went blank no picture or sound ,reset by holding down power button for 10 sec . had no game in it and an update was available so started to install update and after 1% download it froze.Should i turn it off at main switch and try again? Same tv I've always used also so don't know why it went blank in the first place.

My ps3 is connected to tv via hdmi cable. After playing online i changed the game disc to another and now there is no picture on tv. there is the sound but no picture??? Any ideas? Thanks


Press and hold the power button until the system beeps.
Restart the system. This should default the audio and video settings to whatever cable is plugged in, which in this case is the HDMI port.
This should fix your sound issue.

No picture


You need to turn off the system with the "hard" button in the back of the unit, when you switch it back on hold the power button down for 15 secs, this should reset your vid settings.
