This is usually caused by a heat sync problem. The CPU and GPU may need to be re-seated/reflowed. I had the YLOD and fixed the problem. I run a home based pc repair business in southern california. email dwdpcrepair@gmail.com for more information

Your system is freeze up try to install another hard drive if you have another one sometimes is just the hard drive but if is not the hard drive then the only other problem that can be is the gpu getting hot and it need to be reflow with a special system there is a guy on ebay that his job is to do reflow on ps3's and xbox360 with the red ring of dead because if your problem is with your gpu getting to hot the next thing your ps3 is goin a do is not turning at all sorry for this but if is not the hard drive then this is the only other problem it can be

PS3 BOOTS BUT STUCK ON GREEN WAVY LINES GOES NO FURTHER


Try to put your ps3 on standby, then hold the on button until you hear it beep 3 times and then take your hand off the on button. Then use a usb to connect your controller. You should then see a default options menu, select option number 3. This will take you through a few other options and then it should restore, but if this does not work you may have to purchase a new Hard Drive on Ebay, or Amazon.

I turn my ps3 on and the lighjt stays red when i hit the on button it turns green and starts to load but stops and all i see is wavy lines across screen what is the problem?


If the wavy line is like static I no exactly what you mean My old Laptop did that to me but that's because my niece dropped it so you might want to think back if you have ever dropped it if not then you might need to get a new hard drive for it because PS3's have a tendency to Screw up because mine wont play any games it just doesn't even try to read the disc but you might have left the system on too long and fried it as well. so i suggest you either have a professional look at it or replace the hard drive and i doubt you want to buy a new system so i hoped i helped you out ttyl BYE.
