Your harddrive has been broken. The same problem came to me when playing COD5 and the colors and bars came up. You have to service it.(Hope you saved your data before)

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: i had a power cut whilst playing ps3 , now it wont...


First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.

When powering up the ps3 i can only see a wavy thick stripe across the screen?? what can i do?


Hi, this sounds like a problem with the TV cable (from the ps3 to the TV), this is a common problem that causes bad picture on the TV, try to replace it.

Hope This Helps

My ps3 wont update cod5


Hi,

Just go into game data and delete COD5, then play the disc again and it will install again.
Don't delete any games saves, ONLY game data.

My PS3 will start to load Call Of Duty 5 then just goes blank..But will play other discs.Any Ideas?


When I had a similar issue with my PS2 (GT4 would not load) it was because the disk-reading laser was misaligned. That happened after using the system for many years, so if your system is new, maybe you can skip to the 2nd part of my answer. A slight misalignment could mean that the disk is still read, but the process takes longer. If COD5 requires frequent access to the disk when booting up - as GT4-, that might explain why other games load properly and COD5 doesn't.

Other potential problems: scratched disk (visible scratches), dirty disk (you can clean with a cloth, sweeping radially from the center to the border of the disk), problem with the COD5 data installed in your PS3 hard disk (try reinstalling the game).

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.

Ps3 no display


Ok i have good news and bad news. The good news is you don't have to send it to sony for 150 bucks, you can fixs it and i will tell you. Ok it could take a few times but all you have to do is hold the turn on button hold it for a few secs remember it will take a few times but it works.Now the bad news it will come up with a few options do restore system, now you will lose all your saves and you will have to sign up for ps3 network again (if you had it) bu i does save you a 150 bucks right. Well i hope this helps it did for me.
