I think your hard drive is corrupted. It's best to send it of to sony. Any yes, the PS3 has a 1 year warrany regardless of where you buy it.

1. Plug in controller
2. Have system in standby mode (red light)
3. Hold down power button for a full cycle (will turn on and back off again)
4. Hold power button again will hear 2 single beeps then a double beep.
5. As soon as you hear the double beep immediately remove your finger from the power button.
6. Hit the PS button on controller when it tells you to
7. Go to ONLY option 3 (restore)
8. WARNING: select any other option and you can wipe out everything ONLY USE OPTION 3
9. Follow on screen prompts

Try this and get back with me, I will look into it for you.

Wont do anything!


Try turning it on from standby as usual. However, hold it for a little bit longer. You will hear two more beeps. This will return some aspects of the system to a default setting. If this does not work, go to us.playstation.com and browse the support section. You may have to send it back to Sony.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!
