This isn't that hard to fix.

Check out my previous posts for a link to my blog site where I explain what you can do to fix this problem.

I'm no longer allowed to mention the link directly.

Hmm it could be a Hardware issue. I reccommend you phone the Sony helpline, they will help you through the process and if your lucky replace your old console. As you said the console is over one year old the warranty has mostly run out. But give it a try, they may still agree to replace your Playstation3.

My ps3 gets stuck on the wave screen


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 booting 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...

while in stand by, hold the power button until you hear 3 beeps that are about 5 seconds apart, once you hear the third beep release your finger. From there you can restore your system. Down side all saved data...............GONE!

Ps3 Stuck on wave screen, please respond, i would appreciate


The "NO VIDEO" problem is all too common. It results from overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. It is necessary to disassemble the unit apply AS5 compound and shim the heatsinks to ensure proper contact between the heat sink and the processor. I do this for $65.

Try using a different hard drive. The reader arm may be stuck on the platter inside your hard drive so it can't fully boot. Thanks.
