Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Your software needs re-installing, follow this procedure :
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, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and switch off back into standby mode (red light on)
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you 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 and then move onto the next step.
Step 5. A menu will load up with 6 options. Choose option 3 first "Restore File System" and go through this process. If this does not work do the above but choose option 4, then as a last resort option 5. A warning though, option 5 will erase all your data on the hard drive.
