When i turn on my playstation3 it shows the ps3 logo when loading up but doesnt come up with the sign in menu or anything?

try restoring your ps3. turn the switch on teh back off then on. then put your finger on teh power button until you hear three beeps. ( not including the one you hear when pressin the power button.) right after the third beep let go and it will turn off. then try again. after the power beep listen for one beep then after that a double beep. it will show a menu of options. pick restore ps3 then quick format. *ALL YOUR DATA WILL BE DELETED BUT ITS THE ONLY OPTION!
