Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My playstation 3 goes to the loading screen with the squiggly line and it makes the starting up noise. Then it just freezes right there. Even before it gets to my backround where you access all information and setup stuff and internet. Its also in an HDMI t.v with my HDMI cord. Any help?
PS3 is one of the most amazing gaming device but like other competitor
gaming devices (Xbox and Wii) It also has some problems like Freezing
up. You may check out the informative Article at ezinearticles Remedy for PS3 Freezing up

well i got my thanks for the links, this is for the psp and not for the ps3, but its worth a look around if you like all games related stuff, well here is a update for you guys.
After i had the freezing problem at the startup screen (the same as you guys, so this means its a common fault because its at the same spot at the wavey line!!!) i sent my console to some local guy here in england for repair, it cost me £90 in total and was done in 5 days all fixed and working and back to normal, but the thing is its a common problem......hmmm all you guys have had the same thing happen!! at the same startup screen!! its sounds like some kind of software fault as it was fine before all the updates i have to keep doing to play my games, since i had to do software updates it all went wrong, but not all people have had this problem at the startup, my friend has had a ps3 as long as me and also done all the updates and he has had no probs at all, well if it seems that a company can fix your ps3 then someone somewhere knows about the fault and is not saying a word to all us unfortunate ps3 owners, if your in the uk and want the repair address drop me a line.
THE STORY CONTINUES......................................

PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.
PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have
I hope this helps you.
