Try unplugging the tv from the wall for about 10 minutes then plug it back in and power the TV up to see if it reset.

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!!!!!!!!!!!

The system froze while playing a game, and now

If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

HDMI-can't get tv to stay 1080i

This is natural, the PS3 does not stretch the signal like the Xbox does so games play at there native resolution (720p) there is nothing wrong with your TV or your PS3 and you would not see any difference in the games graphics if it was in 1080i. I'm playing my PS3 on a 46" 1080p TV and my PS3 games look great in 720p.

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.

I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.

I have a 50 in vizio plasma. just hooked up a psp3 for the blue ray, but the input only says 480. What gives? shouldn't this be 1080? I can't find an ajustment on the menu screen on my tv?

What you need to do is hook up your PS3 to a different tv. Then in Display setting on the PS3 change it to 480p. Hook it up to your vizio and while on the ps3, change it back to 1080p. Most Vizios don't have a Progressive scan that adjusts to the output settings of the PS3 (or other device) .

My playstation 3 will not play any blue ray dics at all

Heres the problem ladies, Your system is at its end. Wear and tear has screwed it. I am a game system repair tech and I am experiencing the same issue. You can try a few methods. Clean the dvd rom with a cd cleaning device. Tip it on its side. Vert seems to work cause of a less friction spin. Some tv's will support massive resolutions and the software won't. This seems to be a major issue in the ps3. See it auto detects that nice 1080p or what not your tv has but some times the software will wig about that and not perform. Try turning down your massive resolution to a more practical one. The issue I am having is that the CD's, DVD's, and even my pirated stuff runs like gold but nothing blue ray works at all. This is caused by either the reading device just kicking the bucket or because the drivers have some how been diverted. Some install you have done homebrew. The more likely issue is that it just died. Sorry... Sony kicks all sorts of ****. The PS3 is the only gaming solution. So don't get mad at its problems. It has very few issues. But this is one of them. PS2 had the same problem. Remember having to tip it on its side to get it to work... same thing here. Why you have to do that is because the eye is having issue rendering a complete line of code from what it is reading. Could have been knocked slightly out of place, could be dirty or filmy, could have just been probed by an alien and is offended by that and doesn't won't to work any more. Either way you have to face facts, it is dead. Here's the fix. Send it to Sony. If you are still under warranty you will get it back soon with no cost to you and it will work perfect (till this happens again). If you aren't under warranty, it will cost about $150 US but it will work and be cheaper then buying a new one. The other fix is that you could replace it yourself. It would require a new eye and a specialized screwdriver. The eye will cost alot more then $150 and the screwdriver isn't something you can get at a hardware store and cost alot too. So if you want to play the Blue ray disc you just need to get that thing back to Sony and they will replace it. If you have the original one and you are saving it like I am. Will it is now ready to be placed on its shelf to forever collect dust. You of course could figure out how to run discless ISO's but again if you knew how to do this you would be able to figure out that your PS3 is toasted and needs a replacement eye.
