My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

My 60gig ps3 just started to have this crashing problem


it is also possible that the console melted the bus lines on the board
while taking apart the last 20 or so ps3 consoles i have noticed severe bus "leaking"i believe when this happens the console still recognizes its "funk" but can not deliver its video properly..
so in agreement with the other guy you either need a new mother board or a new ps3 whichever is currently cheeper..

My xbox freezes and lines/dots apear on the screen


The graphics processor, and second graphics chip both require a reflow. A special BGA reflow 'heat' machine is required.

Starting up Problems


I found it 2 min. ago. Ok here: while your ps3 is on hold the power button on the ps3 for you will hear one beep, keep holding it then when you hear the second beep take your finger off. Your ps3 should turn off. Now push the power button while holding your finger on it again, you will hear two single beeps, then a double beep, let your finger ago and a screen should appear with six options. Chose something like reset(or restore) file data or something like that and click yes, this wont do anything to your game/music/movie/etc. files but now your ps3 shall work.

Ps3 freezes at startup screen/ green red dots/lines,


Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.

It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.

Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.

You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.

Hope this helps??

My ps3 turn on for few seconds and them the red light blinking and de cd isn't taked


"My ps3 turn on for few seconds and them the red light blinking and de cd isn't taked" That is sort of hard to read, but if It is just the Red light Blinking and it doesn't accept the CD. You will HAVE to visit http://www.Sony.com/ And go to support forums. Look for a stickied post with the Customer Support Number. Call the number and you will HAVE to mail your PS3 Into Sony. They will gladly fix it for you and problem will be solved.
