Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
Hello, I bought a 60 GB first edition and now when I turn it on, when it gets to the XMB after a few seconds, colors and lines start going everywhere until it freezes, looks like he Matrix. When I was doing the secret PS3 settings, hitting power button until it beeped then beeped two times quick, it would even start showing the colored lines in that and then freeze, Please help cause its noy under warranty and want to see if theres anyway to fix it without having to pay a high service charge

Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!

I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.
Ps Same thing happend after i downloaded the house app. booo to the house lol

Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...
The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge
or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..
