Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The system software may be corrupt causing issues. Enter Safe Mode and select System Update. System Update will reinstall the system software. If you don't know how to enter Safe Mode, follow the instructions below.
Turn off the PS3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.
Touch and hold the power button. You will hear the first beep, meaning the PS3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. 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).
Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PS3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. 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 PS3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode. You should then see the Safe Mode menu.
If this doesn't work, try the options listed in the Safe Mode menu in the following order:
Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Restore PS3 System
N.B. There is a possibility that with any of these procedures, data could be corrupted and/or lost.
Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.
