What does it mean when there is a purple wave when the ps3 is turned on? My kids were able to watch a movie last night and play a game but today they are unable to get on.

Sounds like your PS3 is not loading properly. If this is the case you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you access this. If you still have trouble then you may need to replace the hard drive in your PS3.

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!!!!!!!!!!!

Taking ages for ps3 to load up in screen. when it does load just purple screen with waves along no options on screen


Do this turn the unit off then turn it on holding down the power button until it beeps. Now you should get a menu what you do is select factory restore or reset in that menu it will take a little time to reset it but you should be all good to go. If this does not work you might want to look into www.videogamerepair.com for your solution.

I turn my playstation 3 on and all it does is shows this purple wave. and then nothing else happens. i cant do anything with it.


You can try these steps, but it will delete all saved games :

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 :

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.
