    i got that same problem today aswell, looks like alot of people are having the same problems. i power on my ps3 and the sony computer entertainment sign comes on which is good but then nothing happens, can't see my login name...nothing! when i start it up again my login name appears but when i press it once again it just freezes with the wave screen in the background moving. the night before i installed the new patch and installed the playstation Home game.(not sure if that has anything to do with it)

I called sony today and i got a replacement for the same problem you have. i had my ps3 for under a year so thats why i got a replacement for free. the best thing to do is call up.

another way is to take out the hard drive and see if the ps3 boots up.

Heres the customer support number 08705998877

good luck!

The PS3 was turned off without logging off. Now it turns on but nothing shows on the screen.

switch on, then press on the power button again untill it switches off, then press on again untill it beeps twice, let go on the second beep and you should have acces to the service menu, hopefully on screen you will see options and you can restore system from there.

So my Ps3 is turning on and it does the whole "PS3" welcome screen and the squiggly sparkle line shows up but it never really go to the screen where I log in to my account, therefore not allowing...

PS3 only show welcome screen and stuck in sparkle line when power up : That means hardware problems inside your console : Mostly are CPU overheat but actually you can't just cool it down by turn off a while. You need some killer methods to fix it. But do you know it's just waste your time and money if you send to somewhere repair - because the same problems will be back after then. The best way is to learn the repair techniques of yourself.
There is a PS3 DIY Repair Guide: The author use text and video to show you how to use your hands to open your console and do some maintenance and fixes, at last you are amazing that why you can do that yourself. The best part is you can help your friends too!

I played a game of MX Vs ATV Reflex the last night and everything worked fine; then today I turned my PS3 on and all it does is show the screen saver, no icons pop up on the home screen at all... Please...

PS# Error 80023017

Following on from the PS3 3.50 firmware update today, we have started to hear of owners having problems logging on to their accounts.

We have heard of PS3 owners who have updated their system complaining that they cannot sign in, and every time they enter their password are getting the wrong password message. We have had customers who have two PSN accounts and cannot log into either of them. They are met with wrong password message, and even when they use "Forgot your Password" all that comes up is an error.

Conrad Zimmerman of Destructtoid is reporting that PSN is going to have some scheduled maintenance today. This could be why users are complaining of problems logging on to their accounts.

The maintenance is expected to take place during 8 am until 5pm Pacific time. There will be a lot of users who are at work during this time so it will not be a problem for them, but for everyone else it will be somewhat of an annoyance.

My ps3 turns on and only the backround shows , it shows no files to log into. no data shows up on the screen, i cant turn it off unless i use the switch on the back of the console

It sounds like you may have some corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you address this. If you still have trouble then you are having a hardware problem with the system.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

PS3 start screen will not show up on my TV

I had this problem before. I messed with the settings on my PS3 and My TV until the settings matched. My PS3 would show the home until I loaded a game. I turned off then on my PS3 to get to the settings. My TV manual had the types of videos it supported so I went with the second to highest setting it supported and it worked. Hope this helps.

The start up screen for the ps3 wont let me log in

I was having the same problem. It was COD WAW causing the problems. I had to restore mine to factory defaults 2 days after I played the game but now everything has been working fine. If you can't see anything to get to factory reset, you can turn your power off on the back and then turn it back on, hold your finger on the turn on switch on the front for about 3-4 secs til you hear 2 beeps and it should come up and let you restore from there. Thats what I done and its been 2mths now and still no problems. I was on the verge of sending it in til I found this solution online. Hope it helps! BTW, i didnt do the full restore where you lose all game saves, just the easy one restore factory SETTINGS!
