Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

Wont load up home screen.

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.

thanks

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!

My ps3 turns on and the loading screen come up (the blue wave) but its doesnt load the menu?


You are probably going to have to restore the PS3 to factory settings.

You can do this by turning the PS3 off and then when you go to turn it back on, hold the power button down until you hear a beep and then another two beeps.

You WILL lose all save games and other data by doing this however.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

My ps3 starts but wont go to the home menu. the green and blue lights are on but it just doesnt go to the home. it stays at a green screen with the wave going through it. i tried to hard reset and pulled...


You might need to Reset it fully, just turn it on so you see the red, than hold the power button until you hear a beep. Follow the instructions! if this doesnt work you can also try turning everything off for a day and turn it on! But the restarting one usually helps most poeple!
