It could be that you have a bad sector on its hard drive. You could try plugging the joy pad directly into the console via usb cable. There should be an option to download the latest firmware update via the internet. If this fails there is a way of reformatting the ps3 and I have done this myself. It is not that difficult.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dSmvt5Wkwo
Make sure that you are not plugging either the game system or the TV into a surge supressor device or any other equipment that may allow you to have reversed the polarity of the AC current coming into the equipment from the wall outlet. Remember, most modern electronics equipment has a "hot" ground power supply. That means there is the possibility that you are sending current thru the ground return path of the items you connect in this way.
still wow the system reset should have fixed it well use your rca's the ones you got with the ps3 then fo to your system settings and change it manully fix that still dosent work the tv or the ps3 hdmi connection may be bad sorry man ... thats what i can think off i look in to it more so let me kno if the dose not work.
I had exactly the same problem. I managed to fix it by executing so called Rebuild Database operation.
I followed these instructions;
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 this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.
