Try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .

My son's playstation 3 has power going to it, the hdmi is new. The disc appears to be moving in the ps3 but nothing is appearing on the screen. All connectors are in correctly.


That happens when you change tv.
Unlpug it and wait for 30 seconds.
Plug it back. The red red light that indicates that the ps3 is off should be on.
The light must be red(turned off)
Now do this:

PRESS and HOLD the power button for 5-6 seconds untill you hear the second beep

There you go
check here if this didn't work

Playstation 3 wont work it gets to the wavy screen a message says the PS3 was not turner off properly' then i try to restart but nothing happens just a blank screen? Help


Hello

Hello,

Put your PS3 in Standby Mode. The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back

Time to enter Safe Mode. Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

You will then see this screen. "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button".

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.

You will then see this screen. -REMINDER: -BY DOING THE FOLLOWING ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR PS3 WILL BE LOST, YOUR ONLINE STATS ARE ON THE NETWORK SO YOU WILL GET THAT STUFF BACK, INCLUDING GAMES AND ADDONS YOU BOUGHT FROM THE PSN.-

Select option number 5. (Restore PS3 System). Then select yes to perform step. You will then see this screen. "The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored.

The PS3 will then restart. You will see many different languages, all that is is saying is, "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button". Press the PS button and set your settings when it finishes it will start up and its fixed!

I wish you good luck.

Had the ps3 working fine, plugged it into another tv and nothing, the tv wont pick up the signal.. went to plug it back into the 1st tv and still nothing


Try resetting the display back to standard definition -

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep

Wait for the PS3 display to reset

Hope this helps

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.

Loading and saving doesn't work.


rebuild the file system and the database in the recovery consol.

to get to the recovery consol
when ps3 is in standby(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear a double beep then release. if the light turns red before the double beep quickly release and hold it again and wait again.

my ps3 goes like this

ps3 standby mode...press hold power button......."beep"......"beep"........standby again..release then hold real fast........."beep".........."double beep beep"....release and there are the options to rebuild database and filesystem. database and file system wont delete saveed files. i have some other tricks so let me know but try this first.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony
