Sounds as iff the firmware is corrupt best to download the most recent firmware to a usb memory stick from the PlayStation network

Turn off your console then hold down the on button for a few seconds you will hear one beep then a second beep it will turn it self off

From the off position hold the button again and you will hear one beep then two beeps together release the button you will then have to press the PS button on you controller and a menu will appear you want the last option to update you firmware. Depending on you TV I have to switch it backwards and forward a couple of time through the AV channel for the TV to pick up the PS3

Now just follow the screens but beware if it is that your firmware has become corrupt then it will ask you to format you console hard drive meaning you will lose your saved data.

You also have other option from this screen to set factory defaults etc

If this has been any help to you a rating would be great

Thanks

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!!!!!!!!!!!

PS3 won't even show the menu screen


I suggest trying to reset the system by turing the system off first. ( Do not cut the power switch off in the back of the system). Then hold the on button for 3 beeps. See what happens.
