Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

It takes about 20 seconds for the system to turn on and it loads to the ps3 background but no gadgets and the only thing you see is the little glitter in the background and a wave like you would see normally but you can use your controller and play normally.

The ps3 loads and shows background but no menu What could be the problem?


SAFE MODE:

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.


Good Luck!

It probably has garbaged the loading system and needs to be re-flashed. Digital Gadgets that sell that net book to re-sellers has an upgrade OS that can be down loaded and re-flash your system. Before you do read my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing You are going to have to purchase an SD card that you can copy the script file to after you down load and unzip the file. The process is fairly simple but confusing to say the least of Digital Gadgets instructions.

This should get you going again , I had a customer with the same problem , apparently Sony has snuck in a PS3 recovery menu with the latest update.

To go into this mode you need at least firmware 2.50 and do the following:

Place your PS3 in STANDBY mode
Hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps.
If it goes into the video reset setting then you messed up, and do it again till you hear a double beep.

Once your in the recovery menu you can check the status of your hard drive & recover / reimage it . Once done , you should be able to shutdown & power back up to a working console .

My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

When i turn on my ps3 to choose a user it doesnt show any of the users i have, so obvioulsy i cant do anything on my ps3. All it shows is the wavy background, Help me pleaseeee!


Try doing a master reset of your system.
1.) Turn off the hard switch on the back of your system and wait 30 seconds.
2.) Turn the hard switch back on so that the PS3 displays the red "stand by" light on the front LED.
3.) Hold your finger on the soft "on switch" (above the red LED) for about 10 seconds until the PS3 emits a beep.
Good Luck!

When i turn my ps3 on it only shows the background. no users.


Hi, this sounds like a problem with your hard drive booting up. This seems to happen alot with the PS3s. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another PS3 and see if it does the same thing. If it does then your hard drive is damaged and needs replaced.

Little big planet update [caution with this game].


The same thing happened to me. Played LBP for about 20 mins, the game froze and now it will not load any discs properly. It will show the game but then shows an error. I tried spraying air into it which loaded LBP for another 20 mins but then did the same thing. Of course my warranty ran out about two weeks ago. This is ********. I am not paying $150 for something SONY should pay for. I take great care of all of my equipment and own all of the new game systems and a ton of pro audio gear. None of my other equipment has ever done this only 8 months after owning it. Hell my PS2 lasted all the way up till a month ago and I just need to fix something minor on it. Is this just a coincidence that is happening after loading LBP?

Wont run correctly


It sounds like a system file error due to trying to hack background, so check the CSS template and the theme.css to see if they are present in the theme folder. You will have to take hdd out and run on a pc to do this, you can find how to remove hdd by looking on search engine. If you get a 403 error, that means you are not allowed access. You will have to delete and reload the file from a known working ps3 hdd.
