Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You can enter the safe mode for options. Start with system off. Hold the power button on the front. You should here 2 single beeps, the third
should be a quick double beep. Immediately release the button and instructions/options should come up. It might be smart to email sony support first. They have been really helpful to me.

I had a nightmare....I done an update a week ago and all was well until I turned it off and on again later that day and all i would get was the sign in part of start up menu. I would sign in and nothing would happen, no options etc ....just stay on my log in name, so i read the above solution and......What the dude said in the first fix is totally correct and i thank him BIG TIME!!! The first time you attempt to hold the power switch down to wait for two beeps it'll turn the system off.....just repeat it and it'll access restart-resolve problem etc page. I had no idea what the problem was so just done the restore to default settings option and it worked but i lost my saved battlefield 1943 in the process and have gotta re-install all my map pax for cod 5...just let it do its thing overnight!! Anyway, I have my system back and all is well thanx to mborr2118....you saved my life!!!! KEVROK
