Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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.
Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)
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.
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.
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.
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
