Wont get out the first page

Last nite i went to turn on the ps3 it will come on but u know when u get to the first page and it shows those symbols to get into ur webpage. well i will click on those symbols and thats it. nothing happens it wont go into the next page or sometimes those symbols won't come up. i clean it to make sure no dust was effecting it and i let it rest over nite and its still the same problem... what i mean by symbols is the very first thing that comes up when u cut on the ps3. it will show that first page then sometimes those things will pop up and sometimes it won't and when i click them and just freezes and wont go to the next page.

What can i do? whats the problem? is there anybody i can take it to?

    My first PS3 did the same thing and I sent it back to Sony. They sent me a replacement and in 8 days that one did the same thing. I am sending this one back too. I am tired of this happening but I will definetly keep sending them back until they give me a good product. The only problem is that I have to start all my games over again.

You mean icons my friend. your harddrive may be failing, When you turn on the PS3 the harddrives parttion sector is read ...this is where info for your desktop and icons is kept. if your hardrive has bad sectors it will result in an erratic mannner such as what you are describing. goto a local gamestop or friend and get another harddrive. insert it into your ps3 and see if that works...but remember all info get deleted of the hardrive

Man this error code is some ******** i was playing last nite now it wont do **** ive been a died hard fan of ps 3 but yall some **** iam bout to get and xbox 360 **** ps3 the ******** game is medel of...


...okay? If you're getting a 360, get a slim. Lower failure rate. Also, get a NYKO STS intercooler. After the original 360 RROD fiasco, i have no confidence in Microsofts ability to design systems that disperse heat well. And the slim gets hot. REALLY hot.

The playstation is comin on but i cant gat a picture on the tv why tried on different tv worked fine last nite


Ok, follow these simple steps and your PS3 should display properly on the TV.

Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button
Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to restart.

This resets your video resolution back to standard definition. You should now be able to setup your video settings correctly using the PS3.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

XMB not showing up


Sounds like your cpu has overheated and separated from the board, causing it to freeze before loading the xmb.

Ps3 Freezes


Turn off the switch at the back of your ps3.
Turn it back on.
hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until the ps3 will turn on and then off automatically.
let go and then press and hold the power button again. it will beep once, then twice. Once it beeps twice let the button go.
ps3 will show a new menu. Choose option 3 to restore file system. Your ps3 might do the restore twice in a row and then it will work. None of your files will be deleted.

Ps3 wont turn on


ur may actually be in luck. you may just need a powersupply (60 on ebay). if the motherboard was damaged you will need soldering skills with a continuity tester to check for voltage at certain MOSFETS and pass through points...if unit is still under warranty (<1yr) please return to SONY 1800345SONY
