Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Ok from what i've seen. no one has this problem. or has not bothered to post it.
when i start up my PS3 sometimes it works and gets beyond the 'wave of death' where it will freeze up in the menu. other times if i listen very closely i can hear it try to start, but it won't. it makes a small whirr of start up noise then a little click and nothing. i had a computer with this problem once, but restarting the computer worked fine, but with the playstation i just get one of the two start-ups above. if it has been unused for a long time it will start up and play a game. one game. if i try to play another back to the problem stated. i want to know if this is something i can fix on my own. it is a 60 GB ps3 with the backwards capabilities
Hello. Try swapping out the hard drive. This is fairly common and I have seen the same symptoms before. Just pull out the hard drive and buy one just like it or even upgrade a bit up to 100GB, and replace it. When you start it up again, it will prompt you to reformat the hard drive. Do that na dit should start up just fine. Thanks!!
