Tips for a great answer:
1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.
2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.
3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.
NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.

Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe
Press and hold the power button until
the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)
Press and hold the power button again
until you here 3 beeps. Let go.
It should ask you to connect your
controller via usb and press the PS button in
the middle of your controller. (if applicable, try to use both HDMI and AV, switching from one input to another on the TV)
will be a menu with 6 options.
If you do not see this menu with either HDMI or AV/Component cables, you will need to try replacing the hard drive..
When you replace your hard drive, you
will need to have the latest firmware on a
usb stick. Download the firmware from
the playstation official website onto a usb
stick. Once prompted by your system you
will need to insert the usb stick into the
PS3. Good luck..
You will need 2.5" Sata Hard
When you need to power down the system when it freezes, hold the power button until it goes off. At times it can take up to 2 minutes, or more.
Has it ever been opened?
Look underneath the system, do you see a 'Warranty Seal' sticker?
If not, it has been opened and your problems will have to be solved by a technician who has experience.
Good luck with this unit.
