Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green 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 finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.
after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is 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)

When do you get this problem? You need to make sure you are properly configured for internet access. Also, update to version 2.2 (came out last night) and that should solve all of your problems. Good luck!!

when your ps3 is standing upright the tall way tip it over and look at the bottom there should be a plate that says something about the hard drive. get a flat screwdriver and pry on the right side of the plate. The hard drive is directly behind that plate and is secured by a blue screw. take out the screw and flip out the little u shaped handle and slide it to the right and pull out your hard drive. Try blowing out all the connections and putting it back in hope this helps
