My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

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

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

Background glitches in certain games, fall through sceenery


You must be sure that disc are clean and free from fingerprints..this tends to affect background..! Also if you are not online.. you must plug into ethernet/broadband to "UPDATE" ps3 software at least once a week..! and any new games you buy also require Online updates..!

When i turn on my ps3 to choose a user it doesnt show any of the users i have, so obvioulsy i cant do anything on my ps3. All it shows is the wavy background, Help me pleaseeee!


Try doing a master reset of your system.
1.) Turn off the hard switch on the back of your system and wait 30 seconds.
2.) Turn the hard switch back on so that the PS3 displays the red "stand by" light on the front LED.
3.) Hold your finger on the soft "on switch" (above the red LED) for about 10 seconds until the PS3 emits a beep.
Good Luck!

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.

When I turn my ps3 on it just shows the background


Hi, it sounds like your hard drive isn't booting up properly. Try taking it out and putting it in a different PS3. If it does the same thing then you know your HD is shot and you need a new one. Please note that you will be asked to format your HD when you put it in a different PS3 or try to put it back in yours, so be prepared to lose all your data.

Wont run correctly


It sounds like a system file error due to trying to hack background, so check the CSS template and the theme.css to see if they are present in the theme folder. You will have to take hdd out and run on a pc to do this, you can find how to remove hdd by looking on search engine. If you get a 403 error, that means you are not allowed access. You will have to delete and reload the file from a known working ps3 hdd.
