PS3 start-up. ''Invalid Format'' presented on screen. Can hear sound but no picture. TV is LG Plasma Model # 60PY3D


turn off the ps3. when you turn it back on by the console hold the button down until you hear a beep, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the format back to normal, if you have hdmi or anything else you can change it then from your video settings menu.

I bought a playstation 3 eighteen months ago .When i went on it the other day my controller was flashing and i coulnt get the game on my tv screen


First thing you should try to solve your issue is a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

If you don't receive video or you can't hear the PS3 intro sound, then the controller will not connect.

Let me know what happens. I can help ;)

Ps3 initial screen says hard drive file system is corrupted and then goes through a restore. when it gets to100% it shows the start screen and then displays same corruption message again


Sounds like power must have failed while the update was writing to the PS3 harddrive.You might be able to fix this problem by booting the PS3 into safemode. Here's the steps to do that:

Step 1: Turn off the PlayStation 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

Step 2:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PlayStation 3 is powering on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).
Step 3:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PlayStation 3 to power on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the Power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button."
    Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PlayStation 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
  • Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.

  • This last step can possibly erase the data you have stored on your harddrive, so I recommend the options in this order...if one of them works stop and don't try the others, that way you may be able to retain your data.
    1. Restore Default Settings
    2. Restore File System
    3. Rebuild Database
    4. Restore PS3 System
