CAUTION: Following these steps can result in the loss of all saved games, demos, & etc... Resetting the PS3: Unplug the power cord and wait a couple of minutes to plug it back in. Press & hold the "On\Off" button on the front of the PS3 until you hear 4 beeps (1-1-2). Take your finger off the button just after the 4th beep. You may have to go thru those steps a couple of times or more before it goes to the 4th beep without turning off. Once you get it to go to the 4th beep and it stays on it should start going thru a "reset" mode. You will have to attach your USB cable to your controller & PS3. Just follow the on-screen prompts from there. Remember, loss of your game data could occur in the process, but its not really any use to you if you can't get the PS3 to start up to play games anyway. You will have a few options to chose from. I suggest trying the "restart" option prior to a "reboot" or "reset" of your PS3. Typically, this type of thing occurs if you've had your PS3 plugged into an HDTV and then connected back to a Standard-Def TV. For some reason the PS3 finds this un-agreeable alot of times. I would suggest that you keep it attached to one TV, and not move it from place-to-place very often.

when you next turn on your system you will have to quickly hold your finger down on the on/off buttons simutaniously for around 4-5 secs till you hear some beeping noises, hopefully this will start again with no problems.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

I downloaded PS3 system software update 3.15 last night. Now when i turn it on the green and blue lights come on and it starts to boot up but stops and there is nothing on the screen and my controller...


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. i had the same issue and this fixed it.
