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.

This is probably because your lens has gone bad. You need to take it to a Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

If you own a 40GB or a 60GB one, this is a common problem.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

My ps3 gets stuck on the wave screen


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...
