I did everything except this time now it says "


Try a Restore



PS3 Recovery Menu
  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.

Try restoring the file system (Option 3), then repeat with rebuilding the database (Option 4).

On ps3, when switched on, says hard drive corrupted, will restore. after a while trying to restore, same thing comes up again.


  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    Ps3 shut down...was playing gta and consul turned off during game, when try to turn back on it starts comes up on screen then freezes and shuts down again, also the consul does not pick up controlers...


    Hello catanach838

    The system software may be corrupt causing issues. Enter Safe Mode and select System Update. System Update will reinstall the system software. If you don't know how to enter Safe Mode, follow the instructions below.

    Step 1
    Turn off the PS3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.

    Step 2
    Touch and hold the power button. You will hear the first beep, meaning the PS3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).

    Step 3
    Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PS3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.". Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PS3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode. You should then see the Safe Mode menu.

    If this doesn't work, try the options listed in the Safe Mode menu in the following order:

    Restore Default Settings
    Restore File System
    Rebuild Database
    Restore PS3 System

    N.B. There is a possibility that with any of these procedures, data could be corrupted and/or lost.

    Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.

    Ps3 Freezes


    Turn off the switch at the back of your ps3.
    Turn it back on.
    hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until the ps3 will turn on and then off automatically.
    let go and then press and hold the power button again. it will beep once, then twice. Once it beeps twice let the button go.
    ps3 will show a new menu. Choose option 3 to restore file system. Your ps3 might do the restore twice in a row and then it will work. None of your files will be deleted.

    When I turn on my ps3 system on, there is no signal on my T.V.


    With the system off, hold down the power button on your PS3 for 10 seconds. This should set everything back to factory defaults. If that doesn't work, try holding it down until you hear the beep that sounds when the system turns on. Keep it held until you hear 2 more beeps, and release it instantly. If it doesn't work after that, then its going to be a problem with either the power supply, meaning that its missing some off the voltages which powers on the system properly or the main board is bad, at that point you would have to call Sony Tech Support.

    PS3 will not display on TV


    WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.

    LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    WONT WORK


    hold down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system1.gif on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.
