Sounds like the resolution is not set correctly on your tv or your ps3 settings. make sure they both are set to 720i to start, if you have a HDMI cable, that should be the min resolution your tv will do.

Find out the max resolution your tv can do, and set the ps3 to output that.

720i is a good place to start.

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.

It sounds like you hard drive is starting to crash. Try your HD in a different PS3 and see if it does the same thing. The HD in a PS3 is the same thing that is in a laptop computer and they go bad just like the laptops do.

Ps3 from wavy screen to blank screen at start up.


Quick call and its fixed.... Whilst the PS3 is in stand by (red light on) press and hold the on button. Wait until it peeps slowly three times then take the finger off the button. This opens up a factory reset. Work from the top down and see which one fixes your PS3. For me it was a full reset, but at least it keeps your updgrades. :o(
