ps3 slim not ninitilizing –
Hello every one,
I have a ps3 slim that has a strange problem. It powers up and showed solid green but no picture. I tried to reset it and every time after first beeps it shuts off. I have tried this multiple time. But it has decided not to go to recovery mode. I have take out the hard dirve and tried to reset it but still having the same issue.
Any one has the same issue before??
i have a phat model that does this so i would like any solution on this too if anyone got any ideas tryed entering recovery mode but after 1 beep it just turns off each time i try it

If this is the case then whilst the PS3 is in standby, press and hold the power button until you hear it beep once ( 10 seconds or so ). Once you hear the beep, let go and the console will load & display a message saying the PS3 has detected a HDMI lead. That's assuming you have a HDMI lead connected and not a A.V scart lead? Either way this should work as it resets the resolution that the console is set to. If you don't let go after the beep, then it will shut off and the console wouldn't of rest the resolution. It's not the recovery menu that you are trying to access, where you wait for the double beep.
Hope this works for you?
it did not work for me. When I pressed the power button and hear the first beep. I release the power button but it shuts down. Please help.
try another tv. then try using av cables
To both of you, your consoles are either F/W bricked or require a reflow. Have you been using any CFW or anything recently?
I have same problem on my ps3 slim. I tried to use recovery mode which is the only time I get to see something on screen. On safe mode I have use all options except update, but nothing works. Now when I tried to use option 3 on safe mode restore file system I get a message cannot access hardrive. I don't know what to do. Help please.......
Format your hard drive and try again. That should help you. I think your hard drive is bad!! i had this issue and I fixed it by formating it from pc
How do you know it has been bricked??? I am not the owner so I am little cureious.
Actually guys I end up installing 3.55 OFW and that did the trick. Ps3 came back everything is working fine. Now I need to figure out how to put it back with 3.55 CFW to be abble to play games form hardrive again. Which is the best dongle to use? Any recommendations? Any help will be appreciate it, since I wasn't the one who did it the first time on my ps3( a friend did it for me and I have lost contact with this person). Thanks......
