Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have gold screen when it turns on a little smoking line going across the screen but it wont load and farther than that
This is usually caused by one of two things:
1) If the wave is still moving but you do not get a menu, then it is most likely the hard drive is having problems. Try taking it out and turn on the system to see if it continues past the wave screen...then you will know for sure.
2) If the wave is not moving (frozen) on the screen, then it is probably a problem with the GPU and will need to be serviced.
If it is under warranty, I would send it in. Taking out the hard drive will not void the warranty, but taking apart the console will.....Hope this helps...

Take it back to the store you purchased it from and exchange it for another one.
