Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Won't load past opening screen

My PS3 turns on, and you see background and sony electronics logo on right, that fades as should, then just background, and none of the normal icons such as game, video, music, etc. come up, just freezes there. This happened just past my one year warranty, so any help would be great

Are you using one game? one time that happened to me. the plate with the lazer on it that reads the disks might not be moving. it doesent have to move when your not playing the game itself.try loosening the screw in it.if it is too loose try tightening it

Hi all, never experienced this problem before and didn't come across it anywhere. so when i turn my ps3 on it starts up with the ps3 logo screen and then goes onto the background scenario and thats...


Not really an idea, but a theory. It sounds like your system can not load the user interface, and beyond trying a different hard drive, this is beyond my experience to fix. I suggest checking some message boards and perhaps calling Sony. Keep me informed on what you find, as I will be looking as well.

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

Help me fix my ps3 plz


It sounds like your hard drive is going bad.It's not the first time I have heard of this problem.The thing you need to do is try and format your hard drive.But some some can't get past the wave logo.The only thing you can do if this happens,is buy a new hard drive.
