    I agree with charmilion phone up sony, there replacement/repair service is very good, i'm on to my 4th now! But each time replaced it within a week. And on the 4th one they gave me a brand new one with a full years warranty because i had been having so many problems. Now thats what i call good customer service. If you live in uk the service is free.

If the system is freezing up at the main menu this is sign that you have corrupted data on your PS3. The link below will help you fix the problem.

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.

Help me fix my ps3 plz


It sounds like your hard drive is going bad.It's not the first time I have heard of this problem.The thing you need to do is try and format your hard drive.But some some can't get past the wave logo.The only thing you can do if this happens,is buy a new hard drive.

My ps3 turns on but wont go to menu screen just a screen


Ok I had the smae problem, did trouble shoot with sony who had me reset defualt setting. Then wanted to charge me 149.00 to fix, So I went to you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pjjnz0AlMk , and the had me turn system off and then on , hold button on PSP3 system down for 3 beaps the light stays red , then take your finger off and hold for 3 beeps the first beep dosen't count. their will be a menu pop up and select menu item 3, and it will tell you your harddrive is corrupt, select restore, I had to do this twice and now my palystation is working and I don't have to pay Sony a dime. Check You tube for issues, I found a lot of great help there. Hope this fixes this for you as well.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.
Ps Same thing happend after i downloaded the house app. booo to the house lol
