When the system is switch on and the wave on the screen comes on it does not follow up with the main menu why is this !!


your system has malfunctioned i believe all you need to do is activate safe mode.(press and hold the power button for about 5sec. and till you hear a beep)your system should reboot.

Ps3 turned off when doing update


1) Make the light on the front red
2) hold the front power button until u hear a double beep
3) You will get some type of message, I got a HDMI message, others have gotten a usb message...either way just follow the prompts to the end & it should reset.
4) If you dont get it the 1st time keep trying. Mine worked on the 1st attempt but I have read that others have taken more.

The hard drive is bust m8, you should remove the drive and take it to a local computer store and ask them 2 format the drive for you. When they come back and say the drive is unreadable ask them what replacements they have, i upgraded 2 a 160gig for £40.
