I have the same problem as "krazyjay". The only thing is that i was't playing when it went off. The thing is that i used it a few days ago, and when i turned it off I din't turned it off...


You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

I can get into my facebook page but can no get into any games says error on page electricty went off for about 1 hr due to stormy weather

You can try to use system restore and restore it to yesterday or a few days ago when it was working. For XP go to Start->all programs->accesories->system tools-> system restore. For vista, just click on the start button and then search for "system restore". Select a date and see what happens.

Hi. i lost my sound on hp dv 8113 cl few days ago

  • Hi, the best thing to do at this point is perform a "System Restore." Try to remember the exact "Date before the problem occur, or once you start the System Restore, ("pick a date going back more than 5 days"), check the dates and see if any of the dates seem familar. Pick the closest date prior to the "Sound going out!" Type in the "Search Window" from the start menu: system restore; scroll to find, and open. Follow all the instructions carefully for the process to be successful. "Hope it works out for you; if so rating the help will let me know, thanks."

Play station 3 won't play disc's r dvd's just stay's on home page!! What's the problem??

First thing to do is purchase a DVD laser cleaner and run that through the optical drive. If it still wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put the unit into safe mode and try restoring the filing system. To get it into safe mode, follow these instructions: hold down the power button while the console is in standby. The light will go from red to green and it will beep once and then flash green and beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red. once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finger off. The light will stay green and you'll get the screen asking you to connect the controller. After connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is the "restore filing system" this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons (the xmb) You will also need to update your firmware, click on the link below to start this update:

Operating system will not load

If all the diagnostics have passed. This means the problem is more or less a software conflict and that too a driver issue. Two things you can do.

1. remove all the memory sticks from the computer
2. Reinsert only one stick of memory, if you have only one try it in a different slot
3. Then power on the system

Kindly post back the results
