My PS3 started with the same problem on the 29/6/10. Controllers don't connect but they are fully charged. The TV screen has a green PS3 background with no PS3 writing or icons. If you put a dvd/game in nothing happens. Is this the same problem you are talking about.

Why wont all ps3 controllers connect to my ps3


On the back of your PlayStation controller should be a little hole that is used for resetting the controller back to how it was out of the box. It should be to the right of where the screw is in the middle of your controller. Insert a paperclip or anything small enough to get in there and it will hit the reset button. From there plug in your controller into the PS3 and allow it to resync. PlayStation support.

1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie http://192.158.0.1
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Slelect MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point rounter will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.

My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of 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 then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

My ps3 turns on and shows the wavy background for the home menu screen but no menu icons show up. Nothing on the controller changes anything and icons never come up. The wavy colored background is there...


This problem is because your PS3 software has become corrupt. The following steps will cure the problem but you will lose saved games and all other data. Your trophies will not be affected as these are stored by the Playstation Network.
Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later then beep once more 5 seconds later and then turn back to standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button as soon as you hear these two beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and it will boot into the recovery menu.
Step 5. Choose option 5 (Restore PS3 system). This will re-install the PS3 software and restart the console.
Step 6. When the PS3 restarts you will be asked to enter the time and date and other information. When the setup is complete your PS3 will boot into the home menu normally.

Hope this helps

Turns on but will not display anything on tv no background or anything power went off yesterday but is on serge protector same as tv


Try a video reset:

While the PS3 is off (solid red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if that solved your problem.

My ps3 doesn't show any of the Icons


Yea, i've called sony quite a few times myself and got no help.

You can use the 'new' feature they added. Turn on your PS3 and hold the power button till you hear two beeps, then release. Its a recovery menu you can use to try and fix it. If that doesnt work you may have to send it in for repairs, The menu only works on firmware 2.50 and up.

Wont run correctly


It sounds like a system file error due to trying to hack background, so check the CSS template and the theme.css to see if they are present in the theme folder. You will have to take hdd out and run on a pc to do this, you can find how to remove hdd by looking on search engine. If you get a 403 error, that means you are not allowed access. You will have to delete and reload the file from a known working ps3 hdd.
