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

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!!!!!!!!!!!

No menu appears when you switch it on only the wave and colour appears also will not turn off have to turn off from main switc


try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.
