Hello,<br /><br />You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:<br /><br />1. Turn off Playstation&reg;3.<br />2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.<br />3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps<br />4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.<br />5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button<br />6. The Recovery menu will pop up.<br /><br />The current Recovery Menu supports:<br />&bull; Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION&reg;3 System.<br />&bull; Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.<br />&bull; Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.<br />&bull; Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION&reg;3.<br />&bull; Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.<br />&bull; System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION&reg;3 System<br /><br />If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.<br /><br />Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).<br /><br />Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as<br />well as cookies.<br /><br />You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with<br />your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.<br /><br />But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.<br /><br /><br />If you are having trouble with your games freezing it is possible that you have corrupted data on the PS3 hard drive. The link below will take you through resetting the drive.<br /><br />http://www.fixya.com/support/r4853494-fix_playstation_3_corrupted_hard_drive<br /><br />If you still have trouble it is possible that you are having trouble with the PS3 system its self.<br /><br />Take care.<br /> <br /><br /><br />

My screen come's on but the startup wont come up but my users and stuff like game video images and settings wont appear up (contents page) ie: no video game online acess its just a blank screen with the...


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!

My sons PS3 console keeps coming up with an error code - 80010017 . . . saying that an error has occured . . . what is this problem . Ta .


Hi,

There is already a solution by a User :-

Got home, downloaded flow on the new PS3 and tried to play, just before the game launches, the screen returns to XMB with this error: "There is an error During Startup (80010017)"... But I did Active my new PS3... So I went back into Account Management ([Friends] [Account Management]), de-activated and activated again, PROBLEM RESOVLED. Seems like the machine isn't happy with activation before download, I guess.


If problem still persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

Starting up Problems


I found it 2 min. ago. Ok here: while your ps3 is on hold the power button on the ps3 for you will hear one beep, keep holding it then when you hear the second beep take your finger off. Your ps3 should turn off. Now push the power button while holding your finger on it again, you will hear two single beeps, then a double beep, let your finger ago and a screen should appear with six options. Chose something like reset(or restore) file data or something like that and click yes, this wont do anything to your game/music/movie/etc. files but now your ps3 shall work.
