My ps3 says "a serious


This is one of the most serious PS3 errors you can get. You can try access the PS3 service menu and doing a restore.

How to get access to service mode
  1. Make sure the PS3 is turned off,
  2. Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off.
  3. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps.
  4. It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable,
  5. Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu.
Hope this helps.

I turn on my ps3 and there is no menu when it comes on. just a blue screen where the menu should be.


This is because the PS3 software has become corrupted. Follow these steps to fix it but be warned, you will lose your saved data!
1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (Red light on)
2. Press and hold the power button, it will beep as soon as you press it, then again 5 seconds later then once more and turn off. Release the power button when the PS3 turns off.
3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then again 5 seconds later, then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear the 2 beeps.
4. The console will now boot into the recovery menu. Do as the screen tells you and connect a controller up via a USB cable and press the PS button.
5. On the next screen choose option 5, "Restore PS3 system". This will then reinstall the PS3 software and cure your problem.

Hope this helps

MY PS3 DOSENT READ MY GAMES


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.
