You really should ring up Sony for this one.

Have you been using a USB drive on your PS3? That could be a way a virus could get on your PS3

My ps3 i acting weird i think it might have a virus cause i browse the web with it. it will randomly act as if i held the ps button down and the turn of controler and turn of console options come up. it...


Ok, unless you want to console into your PS3 and manually try to clean it or check to see if a virus is making it act up. I would recommend resetting it to default factory settings.

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
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 if there is or was any type of virus it will defiantly be removed. If there is some other type of problem having to do with the hardware, then you are going to have to send it to Sony for a replacement.

Hope that helps.

When I switch my ps3 on, there are just wavy lines across the middle of the screen, the icons do not appear and games will not play


If you have componite connetion and have played in hdmi than you need to switch the connection back and you will see the screen. Set it to auto detect, go to video settings

My Ps3 has a virus


You CANNOT GET A VIRUS on a PS3.

It's impossible.

Your problem is the YLOD (Yellow Light of Death)

If you google: rescuetechla

you can find my blog which explains how you can potentially fix this problem yourself.

If my guide doesn't work then you will need to reflow the cpu / gpu..but that's a whole another can of worms.

Plays, freezes, green lines, won't come back on


It's a GPU problem. Are you comfortable opening up your PS3 or would you rather pay $150 through Sony?

Let me know.

In the meantime you can check out my PS3 blog for some tips, warnings, etc.

Error 8003041C comes up when I try to delete movies from ps3


Might be a virus or a corrupted file on the ps3 which has been transfered using an mp3 play. Check your computer for viruses and the mp3 play as well.
