Try this:


Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).

Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    MY Cricket MSGM8 2 is stuck on the starup screen for the last 2 days my phone has tried to starup but only gets stuck on the startup screen and every 15 minutes of it being stuck it simply resets its self...


    I have the MSGM8 ii phone which got stuck on the logo/start/splash screen the looped for hours in this pattern. Solution: 1) Take the battery out of the phone. 2) Hold down the camera button on the side simultaneously with the power on/end call button, 3) If you have a volume button depress that simultaneously as well. You will be holding these buttons down for 5 seconds. The phone will either vibrate, then backup data, and go to your main screen. I had to give this several tries before it finally went back to the normal screen. This has now happened to me on 2 different occassions and this is the only thing that works.
