Ive had this problem.its the harddrive.ive repaired a couple of ps3's with this problem.usually just replace the harddrive and it should be ok.it may ask for the 2.60 firmware via a usb device.
but ive got a 40gb at the mo that ive had the same problem with ive replaced the harddrive and tried to upgrade the firmware but the ps3 doesnt recognise the update. if you have this problem then im thinking the motherboard may be buggered or the hard drive controller which cannot be replaced

When I turn my ps3 on I only can see the waves and the brighte dust form the screen but it doesn't show the menu just that


There are many reasons cause PS3 hang up in wave screen and won't turn on. Your PS3 hardware need some kind of fixes. Send back to Sony is expensive. You better repair by yourself. I suggest you bought this guide, you can learn how to trouble shooting and disassembly your console and fix it at last. Good luck!

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!!!!!!!!!!!
