Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Once i turn on the PS3 it comes up with the usual black/grey screen with the wave effect but the home menu doesnt load up. It just stays as a black screen with the grey wave effect. I tried just putting a game/dvd in but nothing happens.
Hello. Try a different hard drive. I have only seen a couple machines do this, but replacing the hard drive fixed it both times. Thanks!

Or...if like me, you feel as though the global credit-crunch might munch up your wallet - simply phone Sony customer support. If you're in the UK the number's 08705 99 88 77.
They'll only swap your machine for a brand new one, with an en-suite hard drive that works.
It's the best solution and easiest: all you gotta do is sit back and wait 3 days for them to do it and it doesnt cost you a thing!
