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.

Re: wont get out the first page
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

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

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.
it looks like a hardware error which is getting to be quite common these days..you will have to contact Sony for repair/replacement..the same thing happened to my console and i had to get the bluray mechanism replaced..hope it helps!
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
