My ps3 worked fine. Powered off completely one day and turned it on again to find a black screen. tried doing the beeps reset and it doesn't work. The first beep turns it on and then 3 sec later another...


Here is the proper procedure for Safe Mode.

SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their untill you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

When i turn my PS3 on the light goes from red to green but nothing else happens, the discs load and eject thats it. You cannot turn the system off without turning the power off at the wall.


This is a problem with the Playstation 3 software becoming corrupt. It is very easy to fix if you follow my simple steps.

Please note, this method will erase your hard drive so any save games you had will be lost. All your online trophies will be preserved.

Step 1.

Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2.

Press and hold the power button. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off back into standby mode (red light on). You must now release the power button.

Step 3.

Press and hold the power again. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

Step 4.

Your Playstation 3 will now start up with a screen asking you to connect a controller via USB. Connect your controller and then press the PS button.

Step 5.

A menu will now be displayed on screen. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will then ask you to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the system restore. Accept whatever the Playstation 3 says.

The Playstation 3 will now go through the system restore process and re-install the system software back to out of the box status. You will have to set your user name, date and time and network settings again.

Once you have completed the above, the Playstation 3 will restart and spring back to life again!

I hope this helps all of those out there who are suffering this problem

It turns on but nothing comes up on the tv and wont turn back off


This is a problem with your system software. Please follow these steps to fix it :

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn back off into standby(red light on) . Release the power button after it has switched itself back off.

Step 3. Again, press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release 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 an then continue to the next step.

Step 5. A menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". Accept whatever the PS3 says and hopefully it will restart as normal.

If option 3 does not work, do the above again and choose option 4, "Rebuild Database". If this does not work as a last resort select option 5, "Restore PS3 System". THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA ON YOUR DRIVE!!

One of these options will bring your PS3 back to life.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I turn my playstation 3 on and it gives me the Sony intro and the wave but it doesnt give me the home menu to pick my options, what do I do?


sounds like its struggling to find the file system on the harddrive!!

turn off the ps3 from button on front, then at the switch on the back.

turn it back on at the back.

hold down the power button on front until the console turns on and then turns back off, remove finger.

hold down power button on front again, this time it should beep...beep...beep beep!! this will bring up a recovery menu. select option to restore file system, when system restarts it should all be working again!!

hope this works for you! if not you could try removing the hard drive and then putting it back.

note: if you get any errors saying hdd maybe corrupt, could be the harddrive thats broken and you may need to replace it..
good luck

Turn on but nothing there


Turn it on and push the output connector in the back, just move it a little in and out could be a bad connection.
