Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.

Ps3 start up screen just has waves


ive had this problem.its the harddrive.ive repaired a couple of ps3's with this problem.usually just replace the harddrive and it should be ok.it may ask for the 2.60 firmware via a usb device.
but ive got a 40gb at the mo that ive had the same problem with ive replaced the harddrive and tried to upgrade the firmware but the ps3 doesnt recognise the update. if you have this problem then im thinking the motherboard may be buggered or the hard drive controller which cannot be replaced

when the ps3 is on standby, press and hold the power button, for around 10 seconds, until you hear a special beep, it will the run the optimal screen settings page and auto select the best option for the cables you have fitted. hope this helps
