Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 screen frozen.

My PS3 is frozen. When I turn it on, you get a grey screen withn the Sony start up tone and a Sony symbol wave across the screen. Thats all it does. I tried a reset by doing turning off the system for 30 seconds, turning it back on and then pressing the start button above the LED light. Now I am getting no signal going to the TV. What happened?

When the system is powered on hold the power button down until you hear it beep twice, I am unsure if this is what you were talking about or not but it should reset the system to factory settings

I have a playstation 3 system that worked for 1 day & the next time i attempted to play it,it did nt go past the initial playstation intro screen.The screen is grey with the playstation wave symbol...


Ok, follow these steps to cure your problem. Warning, you will lose saved game data!!

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you press it, then beep 5 seconds later and then once more another 5 seconds later and turn off. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you press it, again 5 seconds later and then 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 beeps release the power button
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then continue to the next step
Step 5. The options menu will display. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". The PS3 will re-install the software required and restart. Hopefully this will solve your problem

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

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!!!!!!!!!!!

Console turns on and when the band is waving across the screen it freezes and ya cant do anything can only turn it off with the power switch at the back


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.

My ps3 gets stuck on the wave screen


This is usually caused by one of two things:

1) If the wave is still moving but you do not get a menu, then it is most likely the hard drive is having problems. Try taking it out and booting the system to see if it continues past the wave screen...then you will know for sure.

2) If the wave is not moving (frozen) on the screen, then it is probably a problem with the GPU and will need to be serviced.

If it is under warranty, I would send it in. Taking out the hard drive will not void the warranty, but taking apart the console will.....Hope this helps...
