Ok, please follow my guide BUT DO NOT CHOOSE OPTION 5 TO START WITH!!

Please choose option 3 first, then 4 then as a last resort 5, option 5 WILL wipe your hard drive -

My ps3 turns on but wont go to menu screen just a screen


Ok I had the smae problem, did trouble shoot with sony who had me reset defualt setting. Then wanted to charge me 149.00 to fix, So I went to you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pjjnz0AlMk , and the had me turn system off and then on , hold button on PSP3 system down for 3 beaps the light stays red , then take your finger off and hold for 3 beeps the first beep dosen't count. their will be a menu pop up and select menu item 3, and it will tell you your harddrive is corrupt, select restore, I had to do this twice and now my palystation is working and I don't have to pay Sony a dime. Check You tube for issues, I found a lot of great help there. Hope this fixes this for you as well.

PS3 won't even show the menu screen


I suggest trying to reset the system by turing the system off first. ( Do not cut the power switch off in the back of the system). Then hold the on button for 3 beeps. See what happens.
