The playstation won't load when it is switched on. The PS3 logo comes on the screen and then it does not progress from there. I have taken out and reconnected all the cables and still no joy.

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.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Ps3 problem


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Nothing comes up on Home Screen?


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
