PS3 has HDMI to TV and Optical to AV amp
tried the reset where you have in on standyby press and hold powerm, beeps then a few seconds later beeps again, no joy
tried the regular composite connection and tried the reset, no joy
tried on another TV via HDMI, no joy
the light is green on the front

Its ur software on ur hdd thats corrupt either ur bios or an update can walk u thru just hit me up on psn under my user name. Its to do with the booting off ur bios on ur hdd, take ur hdd out and try doing safe mode with just the hdmi or just the av cables should get a display saying carnt read hdd so then u no Its ur hdd. if nothing still comes up then Its ur xmb which involves taking out the battery on the motherboard and updating the the bios on ur hdd which includes formatting

Tried connecting the component options and held for the 2nd beep, still no image of screen. although the screen did flash.
also removed the hard drive and powered on, nothing on screen.
I think it has to do with the back panel of the PS3 ive tried a different HDMI socket and a different TV, no joy.

OK, I managed to solve this, after eventually getting it into safe mode.
The hard drive was corrupt, ended up doing a full restore, so lost all the games saves but its a small price to pay.
Now I can only assume this was caused by powering off whilst data was being written, so what is the correct procedure for powering off the PS3
generally I do the following, press the PS button on the controller and ***** down system
when the red light is on i power off from the rear
am i missing anything here and doing it wrong?

leaving on standby isn't really an option so ill do the wall plug option. I dont think remote start is on but ill double check, thanks.
