    take the hardrive out, blow on it,blow in the hardrive slot, turn ps3 on without the hardrive in,should then come up and say cant read hardrive,put the hardrive back in, turn ps3 off at the back,then turn on and bits should start appearing, including the time and date, then keep turnin on and off until you get to the log in page. then unplug the av and power cable for approx 5mins, then plug everything back in and switch on, a message should appear hardrive corrupt- rebooting, this may happen twice, then everything should be ok.

Unwanted text on screen


You sure the graphics are being produced by the TV? If you are using a cable box, it may be coming from there. The other pssibility is a stuck button on the front panel. That can cause displays to come up without warning and won't go away until you get the button unstuck. Try wiggling all the front panel buttons.

The hard drive is bust m8, you should remove the drive and take it to a local computer store and ask them 2 format the drive for you. When they come back and say the drive is unreadable ask them what replacements they have, i upgraded 2 a 160gig for £40.
