Try a different hard drive. When you turn it on it accesses the hard drive as the menu loads. In my experience, it does that when the hard drive has an internal malfunction. Let me know if that works. Thanks.

If the system is freezing up at the main menu this is sign that you have corrupted data on your PS3. The link below will help you fix the problem.

I put in the game Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and instead of loading in the game the screen pops up and says (Accessing game data. Please do not switch off the system while the HDD access indicator is...


This means it's loading your Game Data. There's nothing wrong with this appearing on the screen, it's common and simply indicates that it's loading your last saved state.
If it's stuck on that for a long period of time and not taking you into the game, then you need to go into the Saved Data Utility on your PS3 and delete your saved data file for Gran Turismo 5. Something might be corrupt.
Gran Turismo 5 uses a lot of the PS3's power, so having longer than average load times doesn't mean something is wrong with your PS3.

PS3 turns on and wave keeps going across screen. will not load game or home menu


Try to restore file system on your ps3 or restore ps3 system.
Here is how.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Help me fix my ps3 plz


It sounds like your hard drive is going bad.It's not the first time I have heard of this problem.The thing you need to do is try and format your hard drive.But some some can't get past the wave logo.The only thing you can do if this happens,is buy a new hard drive.

My PS3 wont display the menu


A lot of PS3's are getting errors lately... but I thought it had something to do with the newer updates. You are not connected to internet so that can't be the problem.
Those waves might be caused by your sound/vision/stereo cables that connect your game system and TV. See if one of them is loose. (you know the ones that are white and blue and red or yellow and all that)

Your hard drive was corrupted. The easiest way to fix it is to place your hard drive in another PS3 and follow the onscreen instructions. You'll need either a usb flash drive or a burned cd with the latest PS3 firmware properly filed.

Here's a link:

Most people mess up on the folder setup.

Make sure you have the folders named in CAPS!

Playstation 3 gets stuck on wave screen no logging menu help


Hmm it could be a Hardware issue. I reccommend you phone the Sony helpline, they will help you through the process and if your lucky replace your old console. As you said the console is over one year old the warranty has mostly run out. But give it a try, they may still agree to replace your Playstation3.
