Since your Playstation 3 is not loading properly then most likely you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link bellow will help you address this. If you still have trouble then you have a more serious hardware problem.

White wavey lines with dots or speckles.


The "white line" at the top of the screen is usually associated with "VBI Information" - the stuff that carries closed captioning, etc. This is usually only visible on upconverted SD material on HD channels and is usually the fault of the affiliate not doing the upconversion properly.

I have playstation 3 and when i turn the main power on ,then it loads the ps3 logo with sound ,but just after that only some almost blue screen is on backround and some white wavy mooving line or...


It sounds like the system software has become corrupted. If you dont mind losing your save games and all other data you could try a PS3 full restore. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on). Press and hold the power button until it turns itself back off. Press and hold the power button again until you hear 2 quick beeps together then let go. The PS3 will boot into the recovery menu. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 system". Let it do its thing and hopefully that will solve your startup problem.

Hope this helps

Will not start up. when you power up it looks ok but it sticks on the "wavey line" screen. the wavey line is continually moving but thats all that happens


Most likely your hard drive has failed. This is one of many signs. Replace your hard drive with one similar or even with a larger capacity. I recommend 120GB 5400RPM Seagate or Western Digital. Thanks and good luck!

Ps3 wont go past searching for network and just show white dots


Sounds like a problem with the network adapter if its not able to detect your network as long as your network is working with your computer.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced
