I finally found the solution as I had the same issue. Try the following:
  • Step 1 - Turn off the playstation 3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.
  • Step 2 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the playstation 3 is powering on.
    • Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
    • Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).
  • Step 3 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the playstation 3 to power on.
    • Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
    • Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At this point release the power button. if you succeeded in activating the safe mode, you will see a message on the screen saying 'connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.'
  • Step 4 - Perform the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one option works, do not continue onto the other options.
    • Restore Default Settings
    • Restore File System
    • Rebuild Data Base
    • Restore PS3 System etc...


Goodluck!

my ps3 is doing the same thing. It won't even load the startup screen fully. and then when I turn it off, it won't unless I force shut it down (hold down the power button for 10 sec) how long have you had your ps3 and which one is it?
