    same problem here. and when i try to turn the system off i hear the three beeps but nothing happens. so, where can i get a new hdd?

    One more thing: Is it true that if I have a Full HD TV, I have to play games in 480p because the system can't upscale the graphics? Is this true for Blu-Ray movies too?

Will not start up. when you power up it looks ok but it sticks on the "wavey line" screen. the wavey line is continually moving but thats all that happens


Most likely your hard drive has failed. This is one of many signs. Replace your hard drive with one similar or even with a larger capacity. I recommend 120GB 5400RPM Seagate or Western Digital. Thanks and good luck!

Switches on all i get is the wavey line and coloured background, nothing else.


Hi
First try the ps3 reset where you hold the start button until your hear the two beeps (about 5 seconds).

this this does not work then pleaee try the following
Please note you will lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Ps3 wont go past searching for network and just show white dots


Sounds like a problem with the network adapter if its not able to detect your network as long as your network is working with your computer.
