Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When i turn my ps3 on, it says sony blah blah blah, then it goes to the wavy lines and never goes to the homescreen. the wavy lines are moving but it wont go anywhere. Anyone know how to fix it?!?!
I had the same problem.
Whilst the machine is turned on, plug in the usb to the wireless controller and the PS3 should detect it and ask you to press the ps button (center of controller). Do this and you should get a menu, select RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS, and you will have to input time, date etc but it does get machine working again - previous data is lost and you may need to keep trying as machine took several attempts to detect wireless controller - just persevere!!! I tried pressing buttons etc, switching off but nothing else worked for me ... Hope this helps
