Is your console not turning on at all? or you get a green-yellow red light?
If it's the first one you need a new power supply. Ebay offers a few ( I have one there now for 48.99 buy now price). Contact me at if interested. Sometimes I have parts for sale. It is easy to replace

If you have no idea how to format an HDD, then I suggest you look for somebody with experience. The HDD is bad and it needs to be fix or you can get another HDD.

Hi all, never experienced this problem before and didn't come across it anywhere. so when i turn my ps3 on it starts up with the ps3 logo screen and then goes onto the background scenario and thats...

Not really an idea, but a theory. It sounds like your system can not load the user interface, and beyond trying a different hard drive, this is beyond my experience to fix. I suggest checking some message boards and perhaps calling Sony. Keep me informed on what you find, as I will be looking as well.

Display issue

First, try a different TV. This will tell you if your dealing with a console issue or a TV issue. The sad truth is that 90% of the issues with your PS3 can't be handled at home. Now, if you had a soldering gun and a mother board schematic, it might be a different story. I'm not being wise, brah. But it's true. And without getting to look at your console and your TV, it's really, really hard to diagnose your issue. (By the way, the link you gave me was bad.)
Here's what I'll do: If you try a different TV and get back to me with the info. I give you my word that I will do my very best to solve your problem, Waiwah, OK?
