Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My playstation 3 keep freezing as soon as i turn it on help don't know what to do
All you need to do is replace the harddrive and/or reformat the current one which will require removing it and using a PC to reformat it if it will read. If not , simply replacing it will work I would recommend an upgrade at that point as well if you would like. I upgraded to 250GB when this happened to me. System works just fine now.

Alright i had the same problem all you have to do is call sony at 1-800-345-7669 and keep answering the questions and when they ask u if u want to hit 0 to talk to an operator do it. Once you talk them you'll need your receipt and they'll give you some numbers then they'll send u a box and u just put ur ps3 in it and send in to them

I have the exact same problem. I'll power on my ps3, and it'll say "sony home entertainment" and the wave loading screen just stays and never leaves. Nothing loads and no XMB. Funny thing is that I played a movie on a monday, turned everything off. Went to play on thursday and all of a sudden there's this problem :S any ideas?

What's the XMB gamer? No error code patriot.
I think i've narrowed down the problem. something about the siaxis controller and playing COD4 online. i was able to boot the system and access everything on my hard drive tonight after letting it sit unpowered for a day.i was able to load a downloaded game & play two different movies. I shut it down and restarted and no problems. my controller was fully charged so i disconnected it and when i began to play COD4 online the screen says "reconnect your controller". This is exactly what happened three days ago. plugging the controller back in does nothing, I tried resetting the controller while plugged in and no dice. and i can't connect with my other controller forcing me to turn the PS3 off by holding down the power button for 10 sec or so. restarting brings me back to the same problems. I remove the game and it doesn't change anything when starting up. shutting the rear power off and waiting for 30 minutes does nothing. Can it be something with COD4 online or is it some problem with the wireless siaxis controller?
