Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Alright , so I tried to reset my PS3 by holding down the power button for about 8 or so seconds , & it won't work! I tried it both on & off , My PS3 also has no sound.. Any suggestions?
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!)

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.
