This is usually caused by one of two things:

1) If the wave is still moving but you do not get a menu, then it is most likely the hard drive is having problems. Try taking it out and booting the system to see if it continues past the wave screen...then you will know for sure.

2) If the wave is not moving (frozen) on the screen, then it is probably a problem with the GPU and will need to be serviced.

If it is under warranty, I would send it in. Taking out the hard drive will not void the warranty, but taking apart the console will.....Hope this helps...

Where can i find mi ip address


  1. Turn on your PlayStation 3 console by pressing the black power button on the right side of the device. Turn on a wireless controller by pressing the small PS button located at the center of the controller. Wait for your console to power up and load.
  2. Step 2 Select an existing user profile or create a new profile to log in to your console. Access the "Settings" menu, which is the next option after "Users," by highlighting the menu with your controller. Scroll down through the "Settings" menu to locate the "System Settings" screen, which is about halfway down the menu. Press the controller's "X" button to open the screen.
  3. Step 3 Locate the "System Information" menu by scrolling through the list. The "System Information" option is the second-to-last menu item. Select this item by pressing "X." The PlayStation 3's IP address will be the second item

**USE A FLASHDRIVE FIRST TO BACK UP YOUR SAVED GAMES**


Settings > System Settings > Restore PS3™ System

Delete all hard disk content and restore the system software to its default settings. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform this operation.

After the operation has been completed, the initial setup screen will be displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the operation.

Notices
  • When you perform this operation, all data on the hard disk will be deleted. Also, the system software will be restored to its default settings. Be careful not to accidentally delete important data as the changes cannot be undone. Data loss or corruption is the responsibility of the user.
  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system during this operation. If the operation is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • During this operation, the power button on the system front and the PS button on the wireless controller are not active.
  • You cannot use this feature to go back to an earlier version of the system software.
  • You can shorten the formatting time by selecting [Quick Format] from the hard disk format methods. However, in this case it may be possible for some deleted data to be restored if a specialized tool is used. Select [Full Format] when formatting a hard disk that contains important or sensitive data.

PS3 won't even show the menu screen


I suggest trying to reset the system by turing the system off first. ( Do not cut the power switch off in the back of the system). Then hold the on button for 3 beeps. See what happens.

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.

while in stand by, hold the power button until you hear 3 beeps that are about 5 seconds apart, once you hear the third beep release your finger. From there you can restore your system. Down side all saved data...............GONE!
