Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch. 2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours).

- this process will remove all content and restore the playstation 3 to factory defaults

Ps3 will not load games


Hi rdsx1001,
A quick system restore should fix this problem. Here's how: - turn your unit off - Hold the power button for at least 15 seconds, you should hear 3 beeps - select RESTORE SYSTEM FILES to restore your unit
I hope this works for you too. Cheers.

I was updating my system, it froze, I hit power, nothing happened,so I unplugged it. Now whenever I turn it on, it shows that it is on but nothing is on the screen. What do I do?


Have you tried the system restore menu yet. If you turn ps3 off then hold down power button until you hear 3 quick beeps it should then show a new menu on screen with about 5 or 6 options to select from. Try restore ps3 system and see what it does. Maybe it will help.

Easy fix. Hold down the power button on the system until it turns red. Release, and repeat. Release and repeat, only this time wait until you hear 2 quick beeps. Release quickly and then you go into Safe Mode, Choose option 5, PS3 System Restore. This will also reformat your disk. System will automatically restart when you complete the system setup. Only warning is you lose all login info and possibly content you have downloaded. You are done.

No main menu, just wavy lines with sony entertainment


This is a hard reset of the system, used when there is a catastrophic error etc. I have trawled these kind of sights and the main concensus is to ensure you have a back up of all important data. I experienced the same issue but the method above was advised by my games shop.
