Hi

khanjeevan :

Welcome to justanswer.com

Customer:

hi

khanjeevan :

lets perform a hard reset-




Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back .




After that hold Power Button on the front until you hear 3 beeps.




Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).




By doing hard reset you will lose your game saves and settings


khanjeevan :

Tell me if it makes any difference to your problem.
