The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

Will not play games or dvds- menu screen will not come up the screen just shows the red wavy lines not the blue like it is suppose to


1- Disconnect the PS3 from the internet.
2- Turn the standby switch off so the red light turns off too, then you turn the system back on
3- Then place your finger on the power button for a total of 4 beeps to access the recovery menu. It might not work on the first attempt but it will on the second.
4- The display will instruct you to connect your controller to the PS3 and press the enter button. A list of menus will appear on your display. The choices are as follows: Restart System, Restore Default Settings, Restore File System, Rebuild data base, Restore PS3
5- Select Restore Default Settings.

Hitachi 53sbx59b horizontal wave lines


I would check the main power supply for a bad filter cap. That could cause the wavy lines. The different colors are probably a problem with the convergence circuit. Try resoldering the convergence ICs first. If that does not resolve it replace the ICs. Also check for low valued resistors in that same circuit or pico fuses.

Tv screen waves and is double


No. You have bad convergence output ic;s and probably at least 1 burnt resistor. This liely will have to be reconvergec in the servcie menu after the aprts are changed.
