Hi, I've only had my PS3 simce august and its already failing me!
So when I press the startup button the startup music comes on with the PS3 Logo then it comes up with please wait screen then goes off and just freezes with the screen with the wavy line through the middle with nothing else on it. It does this every time so I can't do anything.
Anyone have any ideas what I can do?

PS3 Recovery Menu
Hi thanks for the reply, I have done both options 3 and 4 and I am still getting the same problem.
Ok thats not really a problem as I don't have that much on it anyway, I have been away for 4 months so not that much data. Just done it now and it seems to be working fine. Thanks for the help, was getting worried there!
how do i completely restore my ps3 system and erase all data because i have the same problem and i cant do anything
I am having a simalier issue. Ive have the 80GB fatty and never had an issue until the latest update. My system would start to freeze, I'd shut her down and start back up working fine again up until the other day where will not do anything I did my research and got into safe mode did option 3 & 4 both did not fix the issue. I then decided what the heck and did the reformate only for it to work for about 10 minutes. Now I either can not get past the start up, get back into safe mode or the picture does not show up. I really need help figuring this out cause I dont want to spend money on another system can someone please help me with this?

when i start up the ps3 system a message comes up saying your ps3 wasnt turned off correctly the last time it was on. the system could be corrupted. click ok to repair the system this could take 2 to 3 hours to complete. so when i click yes it finishes installing then it gets onto the main screen were the ps3 sign comes up then it freezes when the wavey thing comes up.but 5 mins ago i some how got onto it with out it freezing so i played little big planet 2 for a bout half an hour then when i took the disk out it froze again. now its doing the repeat all again what should i do?
hi my ps3 is having the same problem i have already restored the ps3 it did not work should i retry it or is there another way
It seems you might have to restore the PS3 then if those have failed. Unfortunately that will be a format and you will lose all your data.

I had this freezing problem last night with a Ps3 on Hotel Wi-Fi. None of the solutions in this thread (that I'd read) worked but I did come up with a unique solution myself.
I reasoned if I created a Wi-Fi hotspot on my phone with the same SSID (obviously passworded) as the hotels Wi-Fi it would try to connect to my phone first because it would be the strongest signal.
It only needed to be on for a minute but it worked like a charm. The Ps3 connected to my phone instead of the hotel Wi-Fi and I was able to disable the network settings.
Still would like to know why the Ps3 freezes when connected to this type of network!
