Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Some possible solutions, from easiest to hardest:
-Unplug the PS3 from it's outlet, then replug it back in.
-Restore the PS3 to it's default settings by turning off the console, then pressing and holding the power button for around 10 seconds (it'll beep a few times).
-Remove the hard drive from the console, then put it back in. Here's a detailed guide, but basically you use a screwdriver to remove the bottom hard drive panel, then pull the metal handle to pop it out. You don't have to remove it from it's frame; once it pops out, just put it back in.
-Try the PS3 Safe Mode, options 2, 3, 4 and 5 (3 might delete data, 4 and 5 definitely will).
-Replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.
-Send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe). They take forever to send it back though.
