Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Ok, follow these simple steps :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you press it, once more 5 seconds later and then once more and it will turn back off onto standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep once when you press it, beep again 5 seconds later then it will beep twice quickly. When you hear these 2 quick beeps let go of the power button.
Step 4. Your PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then go on to step 5.
Step 5. A menu will load up. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will format the PS3 and reset all settings back to default.
