I suggest you contact sony as its proberly the HDD or Firmware. Its definately something you shouldnt attempt to do on your own. Call the Sony helpline and they should be able to replace your console.

PS3 freezes...shows colored "specs" on screen.


This is a common problem with the PS3. sadly you cant do anything for it. The only think you can really do is to get your PS3 replaced cause sadly your PS3 has suffered dome physical damage for sure.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


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

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
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!!
