Try to press and hold the power button on the fron untill it goes off and then press and hold until it comes back on. do this without a game inside..if this does not work, reapeat the steps until your PS3 goes back to the regular main menu

My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

Step 1. Turn your PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then 5 seconds later it will beep again and then it will beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this then continue to the next step

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

We have a ps3 60gb, and all that comes up on the screen is the wavy lines that is the backdrop for the homescreen. now we did the system reset and now when i turn the ps3 on nothing happens, it just look...


If your PS3 has been restored and the green power light is staying on after you turn it on it could possi bly be the video resolution. If you have been using the PS3 on HDMI you may need to reset it back to standard definition. Do this by holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If that doesnt help try going into the restore menu and "Restore PS£ system" again. If that fails too, download the latest PS3 update and put it onto a USB stick. Using the PS3's recovery menu again, select System update. It will then continue to update from the USB stick. I really hope this helps you out.

Ps3 freezes in the start


When turning on Press and hold your PS3 power button for about 6 seconds. You will hear 2 more bips!
This will reset your PS3 to MFG default. Connect your Composite jacks (Yellow, red, white) from your PS3 to your TV in order to hear and see the display! This will not delete any of your data!

GoodLuck!

I turn my ps3 on and the lighjt stays red when i hit the on button it turns green and starts to load but stops and all i see is wavy lines across screen what is the problem?


If the wavy line is like static I no exactly what you mean My old Laptop did that to me but that's because my niece dropped it so you might want to think back if you have ever dropped it if not then you might need to get a new hard drive for it because PS3's have a tendency to Screw up because mine wont play any games it just doesn't even try to read the disc but you might have left the system on too long and fried it as well. so i suggest you either have a professional look at it or replace the hard drive and i doubt you want to buy a new system so i hoped i helped you out ttyl BYE.

The ps3 wont play any games or load up anything else either. It goes to a pink screen with a wavy line in the middle and thats it. Also the controlers wont connect to the system, if you turn them on they...


But you are unable to play your discs because the Blu-Ray Lens that enables the PS3 to read Blu-Ray movies or games has gone bad.

There is nothing you can do about it. You need to take it to an authorized Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

Power up trouble


Okay i will need you to turn off you system off from the main power located on the back. Then you will need to turn it back on after that you will need to hold the touch senstive turn on located on the front of the ps3 hold it. You will hear a beep that just tells you that it is turning on. Still be holding the turn on button untill you hear another beap after that you can let go. This will reset you picture setting and will not delete anything on your hard disk. If this dosent work call sony at 1 800 345 7669

PS3 Freezes On The Wavy Lines


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
