When i turn my PS3 on the light goes from red to green but nothing else happens, the discs load and eject thats it. You cannot turn the system off without turning the power off at the wall.


This is a problem with the Playstation 3 software becoming corrupt. It is very easy to fix if you follow my simple steps.

Please note, this method will erase your hard drive so any save games you had will be lost. All your online trophies will be preserved.

Step 1.

Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2.

Press and hold the power button. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off back into standby mode (red light on). You must now release the power button.

Step 3.

Press and hold the power again. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

Step 4.

Your Playstation 3 will now start up with a screen asking you to connect a controller via USB. Connect your controller and then press the PS button.

Step 5.

A menu will now be displayed on screen. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will then ask you to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the system restore. Accept whatever the Playstation 3 says.

The Playstation 3 will now go through the system restore process and re-install the system software back to out of the box status. You will have to set your user name, date and time and network settings again.

Once you have completed the above, the Playstation 3 will restart and spring back to life again!

I hope this helps all of those out there who are suffering this problem

My ps3 has stopped showin the icons but its loading up the front screen is there but no icons ?


Your software needs re-installing, follow this procedure :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and switch off back into standby mode (red light on)

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then move onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will load up with 6 options. Choose option 3 first "Restore File System" and go through this process. If this does not work do the above but choose option 4, then as a last resort option 5. A warning though, option 5 will erase all your data on the hard drive.

This problem is because your PS3 software has become corrupt. The following steps will cure the problem but you will lose saved games and all other data. Your trophies will not be affected as these are stored by the Playstation Network.
Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later then beep once more 5 seconds later and then turn back to standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button as soon as you hear these two beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and it will boot into the recovery menu.
Step 5. Choose option 5 (Restore PS3 system). This will re-install the PS3 software and restart the console.
Step 6. When the PS3 restarts you will be asked to enter the time and date and other information. When the setup is complete your PS3 will boot into the home menu normally.

Hope this helps

Try this, but keep in mind that one of the options wipes all your data.

These should be safe to use, and 'should' keep your data.
  • Restore Default Settings
  • Restore File System
  • Rebuild Database



  • Step 1: Turn off the PLAYSTATION 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

    Step 2:
    1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
    2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
    3. 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:
    1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
    2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
    3. 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."
    4. Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PLAYSTATION 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
    5. Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.


    Step 4: We recommending performing the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one of the options work, do not continue onto the other options.
    1. Restore Default Settings
    2. Restore File System
    3. Rebuild Database
    4. Restore PS3 System
