Are you trying to get to the safe mode menu?...if so unplug for 1 minute...replug...hold power button (beep) 5 secs next beep is 1...next beep is 2 after 5 secs and power off. let go of button...repush power button(hold)...(beep)...then beep again after 5 secs...then 2 fast beeps...let go of power button. it will ask you to connect your USB to your controller then push the PS button on your controller. you should be in the menu for safe mode.(research your options there thru sony and understand what they are first before running them!)

I have a ps3 and the picture won't. Show up and if


It sounds like you may have a resolution conflict occuring, to see if that is whats happening, hold the power button in for 15-30 seconds. While your doing this you will hear the standard beep of the console turning on, keep holding down the power button for around 15-30 seconds or until you hear another series of beeps. Then you will want to let go of the button and let the PS3 go through its process of reseting your video settings.
If this it not the issue I recommend calling Sony.

Ps3 won't go to AV


If you have recently used an HDMI cable, or other HD output, your Ps3 may still be set up for such a connection. If that's the case, you can try..
1. connecting with AV cables while your system is OFF. 2. Then, hold down the power button. Your console will beep once, keep holding it down until you hear a SECOND beep.
That resets your audio and video output to SD again.
Hope this helps.

Okay, hold the ps3's power button until it shuts off. Then hold it again until it beeps twice. When prompted, plug your controller in. Press the PS button on your controller. Now, dpad

Ps3 will not eject


The only way to force eject your ps3 disc is to hold down the eject button for up to 30 seconds.
You could try ejecting from within the PS3 menu,
You could try resetting your console by turning it off and then holding the power button down for 30 seconds.

Lots of PS3 owners have reported this issue, and the only common solution is to send it in to sony as your disc drive is broken.

On ps3, when switched on, says hard drive corrupted, will restore. after a while trying to restore, same thing comes up again.


  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    Ps3 shut down...was playing gta and consul turned off during game, when try to turn back on it starts comes up on screen then freezes and shuts down again, also the consul does not pick up controlers...


    Hello catanach838

    The system software may be corrupt causing issues. Enter Safe Mode and select System Update. System Update will reinstall the system software. If you don't know how to enter Safe Mode, follow the instructions below.

    Step 1
    Turn off the PS3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.

    Step 2
    Touch and hold the power button. You will hear the first beep, meaning the PS3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).

    Step 3
    Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PS3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.". Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PS3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode. You should then see the Safe Mode menu.

    If this doesn't work, try the options listed in the Safe Mode menu in the following order:

    Restore Default Settings
    Restore File System
    Rebuild Database
    Restore PS3 System

    N.B. There is a possibility that with any of these procedures, data could be corrupted and/or lost.

    Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.

    when ps3 is in standby mode(red light)
    press and hold the power button till you hear a second beep.

    then try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

    to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

    ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.
