Ok, follow these steps to fix your PS3, unfortunately you will lose your save game data!!

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep 5 seconds later and then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 beeps.

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

Step 5. A menu will load. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 system". The console will ask you if you are sure, just accept and then the PS3 will restart. All the original software will be loaded and you will need to enter the date and time and other details.

When you have done all this your PS3 should be fully working again.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.

PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS


The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:

Settings:

Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!

No main menu, just wavy lines with sony entertainment


This is a hard reset of the system, used when there is a catastrophic error etc. I have trawled these kind of sights and the main concensus is to ensure you have a back up of all important data. I experienced the same issue but the method above was advised by my games shop.
