Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

After power is on problem.

When I turned on my consol it goes through a green wavey
sony start up screen saver. then the sony sign goes away
and i am left with the green screen saver. I put in a couple
different games and dvds in and it would still be the same
opening green wave screen saver. I tried with the remote and
controller to go to the home screen and nothing not even a ps
screen. I tried everything i could think of, what do you suggest?

    just called sony they didn't have much to say other then send it in for 150.00 and will fix it. Good luck finding a store as well for a consol trade in. if you have this problem most store wil not exchange or do store credit for it.

My ps3 turns on normally, but the screen is just black and it has always worked on the tv i got. But one day i turned it on and the tradmark wavey line was ther but nothing eles so i restarted it again but...


Hi, i also had this problem with mine.You hold your finger on the power button for about 5 seconds. After two beeps it resets it to the RCA cable format. When the HDMI cable is connected, the PS3 automatically adjusts it's resolution. But when you go back to regular cable it doesnt do it automatically, you have to do it manually.

Take care.

Will not start up. when you power up it looks ok but it sticks on the "wavey line" screen. the wavey line is continually moving but thats all that happens


Most likely your hard drive has failed. This is one of many signs. Replace your hard drive with one similar or even with a larger capacity. I recommend 120GB 5400RPM Seagate or Western Digital. Thanks and good luck!

It turns on but no menu appears. just have the intro screen saver


try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.
