Have you tried a Database Restore from Safe Mode? :o)

Step 1: Turn off the PLAYSTATION 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

Step 2:

  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).

Step 3:
  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the Power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button."
  4. Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PLAYSTATION 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
  5. Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.

Step 4
: We recommending performing the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one of the options work, do not continue onto the other options.
  1. Restore Default Settings
  2. Restore File System
  3. Rebuild Database
  4. Restore PS3 System

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!!!!!!!!!!!

I insert the disc uncharted 2 among thieves,after loading my ps3 turn off by itself.what should i do?please help ,i cant play uncharted 2 among thieves.i already replace with another but still my ps3 turn...


Seeing how that game just came out, there is probly a few bugs. did you go to system update and make sure you have the newest ps3 firmware? If your other games work fine then im sure your not the only person this is happening to. They will release a patch and when you go to boot up the game it will download and install. Hope they patch it soon for you! ive been waiting months for this game to come out, but i dont have the money to get it right now, Hope They fix it soon!

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.
