When I turn my ps3 on I only can see the waves and the brighte dust form the screen but it doesn't show the menu just that


There are many reasons cause PS3 hang up in wave screen and won't turn on. Your PS3 hardware need some kind of fixes. Send back to Sony is expensive. You better repair by yourself. I suggest you bought this guide, you can learn how to trouble shooting and disassembly your console and fix it at last. Good luck!

I try to trn on my ps3 and i eather get a black screen or the wave screen comes up and then it will freeze.


I had this problem!
If the problem your having is caused by the same thing mine was then this is how to fix it ...
1. Buy a External drive case like this one.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/IOMAX-External-Enclosure-Laptop-Powered/dp/B001EEQQ8Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1279755665&sr=8-1-catcorr
2. Remove your ps3 hardrive by taking of the cover on the side and removing the blue screw, then remove the tray from around the hardrive.
3. Place the hardrive in the external case.
4 Plug usb external case into computer, goto my computer then right click ps3 hardrive that will now show up.
5. Right click the drive and click format
6. After formating put the drive back into the ps3 and the ps3 will then come up with a message follow the instructions... and your ps3 will now work again.
(by doing this you will lose all your ps3 saves, music and videos and so on it will be like resetting your ps3 to when you bought it.)
Hope this helps.
