Please try:

  • turning your PS3 SYSTEM ON BY HOLDING THE ON/OFF BUTTON and using the AV cables (red white and yellow, it will restore your audio and video settings).
  • changing your Hard Disk for another one (spec: SATA 2,5'' 5400rpm)
  • taking you Hard Disk off of the system and formatting it in a PC platform .
else, consider taking the system to a assistance center for possible hardware issues checking .

My ps3 will turn on and it will show the ps3 welcom screen and then the logo goes away and the screen sits there and i cant go any further.


Have you tried "soft reset" - when it's on hold your finger on the power button (on the front) for about 5 seconds until you hear it beep 3 times.
It should re-start after that and hopefully be okay.

If it doesn't then I think it's time to call Sony.

It sounds like you hard drive is starting to crash. Try your HD in a different PS3 and see if it does the same thing. The HD in a PS3 is the same thing that is in a laptop computer and they go bad just like the laptops do.

CANT GET INTO ACCOUNT


Do you see the menu? or is it just blank with the background? as the new update from the network seems to have affected many ps3s. Consult the ps3 site as there may be an update on how to deal with this but i used recovery mode to deal with it when i experienced a similar problem, again i found how to get to it on the ps3 community site:

How to get to recovery menu
  1. Turn your PlayStation 3 off.
  2. Hold the power button until you hear a double beep, then remove finger.
  3. You should be prompted with a screen asking you to press the PS Button on a controller.
  4. The Recovery Menu should load.
The current Recovery Menu supports:

Restart System
Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Database
Restore PS3 System
System Update BACK UP DATA IF POSSIBLE AS IT MAY BE DELETED USING THIS METHOD!!!!!!!
