Every time i turn on my ps3 it shows the waves when you first turn it on and it stays that way what do i do?

  • Your hard drive is corrupted. You need to go to the PS Recovery Menu. You probably gonna loose most of your files if not all of them depending on the extent. Hopefully you have a backup somewhere. But you can fix your PS3 and get gaming again.

  • How to Access PS3 Recovery Menu.

  1. 1. Turn your PS3 off.
  2. 2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.
  3. 3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear two consecutive beeps
  4. 4. When you hear the two beeps take finger off power button.
  5. 5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button
  6. 6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

  • Once you are at the Recovery Menu you should see 6 options. Start with the first option and go up until you have tried #4 as well (if needed). One of them should fix the problem.

  1. 1. Restart System: Restarts the PS3 System.
  2. 2. Restore Default Settings This resets the system settings back to default.
  3. 3. Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
  4. 4. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PS3
  5. 5. Restore PS3 System: This deletes everything and you will start from nothing again. Not a recommended procedure.
  6. 6. System Update: Update the PS3 System

  • Hope this helps
