Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

When I turn my PS3 on, my background screen appears but nothing else loads, not even the numerous areas (Settings, network etc.) all that appears is an icon in the upper right hand corner saying "Press the PS button", which does nothing but tell me to either turn off system or turn off controller.

Hi all, never experienced this problem before and didn't come across it anywhere. so when i turn my ps3 on it starts up with the ps3 logo screen and then goes onto the background scenario and thats...


Not really an idea, but a theory. It sounds like your system can not load the user interface, and beyond trying a different hard drive, this is beyond my experience to fix. I suggest checking some message boards and perhaps calling Sony. Keep me informed on what you find, as I will be looking as well.

My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of 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 then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

Ps3 will not show on screen at all...no disk load, no words. The TV does not even appear to pick PS3 signal. I bought the HDMI cord and still nothing.

Background glitches in certain games, fall through sceenery


You must be sure that disc are clean and free from fingerprints..this tends to affect background..! Also if you are not online.. you must plug into ethernet/broadband to "UPDATE" ps3 software at least once a week..! and any new games you buy also require Online updates..!

Ow to fix your playstation 3 when nothing comes up on the screen. the loading screen does not come up. it just stays with the background


dust could be the problem, dust in side the console itself (cd tray area etc) or the A/V cables could be fried, try using a different set of A/V cables or test the ps3 on another TV
