It maybe a hardware failure, or it can be anything really... you might try to reset configuration by holding the power button for more than 4 seconds... it will reset your display settings and so on...
you blueray maybe stuck aswell , hold it for 10 seconds it will force a "disc out"
the last you can do is , that is ofcourse you dont have a warranty , open it up (see youtube video"ps3 bluereay disassembe" how to open it)

I turned on my ps3 and nothing is happening it is not giving me the option to sign in or anything. just the blue backround nothing else and now it wont let me turn it off.


Sounds like you PS3 software has become corrupt. Follow these steps to sort it but I must warn you, you will lose all your save games!!
Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button when it turns off.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. As soon as you hear the two beeps let go of the power button.
Step 4. Your PS3 will now boot into recovery mode. Connect you controller via USB when asked and press the PS button.
Step 5. Select option 5 from the recovery menu, "Restore PS3 system". This will rewrite your PS3 software and hopefully should sort your problem.

I have playstation 3 and when i turn the main power on ,then it loads the ps3 logo with sound ,but just after that only some almost blue screen is on backround and some white wavy mooving line or...


It sounds like the system software has become corrupted. If you dont mind losing your save games and all other data you could try a PS3 full restore. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on). Press and hold the power button until it turns itself back off. Press and hold the power button again until you hear 2 quick beeps together then let go. The PS3 will boot into the recovery menu. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 system". Let it do its thing and hopefully that will solve your startup problem.

Hope this helps

Home screen shows only backround. No icons


Switch the PS3 off (Red Light). Hold your finger on the power button until the PS3 switches on and off. Take your finger off and hold it in again. It will come on. Hold it until you hear a double beep and take it off immediately. You will then be taken into a recovery menu. It will ask you to connect your controller via USB. Choose option 3 - Restore File System (Do not try any other option as it will erase some or all data on your HDD). It should work after this.

Hope it helps you.

All i get is a backround no words, no connection for controllers


are you connected with the HDMI cable? DId you switch TVs recently?

You might have the resolution under settings set wrong. so the screen is really tiny. If your remote for the tv has a zoom option, zoom up until you can see the settings to change the output

I put in a game and the psp system froze i cant turn of!!!


Try to remove the memory card. Reboot the PSP. Also make sure that you save the game files on the correct root folder in PSP.

If PSP will still not boot without the memory card. Bring PSP to Sony Service Center.

But if it boots up without memory card. Try to erase all data on memory card. Thre could be a virus or malware there causing the malfunction.

If it still fails, reset the whole thing and erase everything for a clean start.

Thank you.

My ps3 won't show anything


hold the reset button to restore your settings do this various times untill you get a screen that has many options read the options and pick the option that says rebuild the hard disk drive. once it gets to 100% sat your settings. then your ps3 shouold be back to normal. the bad thing is that you will lose everything you saved on the ps3 =[
