HI, this is a major hard disk error. possible corruption in the core sectors. you will need to contact Sony for this repair.

This could either be the hard disk itself or, it may be the internal connections that link the hard disk to the main board.

No icons coming up on home screen


So, when you power on the unit, you get the wavy screen and then nothing more? Perhaps no 'wavy screen'? If so:
Your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, has crashed. You will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

Playstation 3 showing grey screen with wavy lines


Sounds like your Av Cable from the unit to your tv is gone...id try getting a replacement and see if that works...if not it could be your tv or the connector on the unit itself could be faulty but try that first!.

Start up problem


Hi, it sounds like your hard drive isn't booting up properly. Try taking it out and putting it in another PS3, if it acts the same way then your hard drive is probably damaged and needs replaced.
