I got a new game for the PS3 recently and was hoping to try it out yesterday, but to my surprise, when I turned on my PS3, two things happened:
- The controllers wouldn't connect at all.
- The screen started up, but never went to the menu.
I pressed the PS button on both of my two controllers and plugged both of them into the console separately, but to no avail. Today, I went to check on it and now the screen won't even turn on. Now I'm really worried because that means that it's not just a problem with the controllers, but with my PS3. I've had my PS3 since late December 2007, so I'm really hoping that my PS3 isn't having problems after just four years.
Now I've been trying to find solutions online and all of them that I've found so far have to do with holding the power button for 10 seconds. I've already tried this and it hasn't helped. Now I don't want to go to any drastic measures unless there is NO OTHER WAY of fixing it.
So I ask of you all: What is wrong with my PS3? How do I fix it?
