Real Problem with the Ps3, won't even load up the start-up.
Switch on the power at the back working fine up until the starting squiggley line opening screen and just stays on the squiggley line screen, can't see get the game,music,video,network,settings.
i have tried restarting it for 2 days now
if u have a high def cable, then try and making sure that its fitting in right,
if u have a high def cable, try taking it away and try using the orginal wire that the ps3 provided u in the box
if u dont have a high def cable and just hav a standard scart then try using another scart that mite be lieing around ur house
I am having the exact same problem, did that work, if not how did you fix it?
Well in the end i had to phone Playstation, and they had to replace my old ps3 with my new for nothing, so if the problem continues just give them a call
This has happened to me twice. The first time i got a replace as its in the first year, but now its broken again and im gona have to get another one. It broke within a week if youve got a way for fixing it i'd like mto hear please, Thanks.
Exact same problem here. It looked like I wrote it myself. These systems cost way too much money to have these type of problems. If Sony will not admit to the problem with the consoles a class action lawsuit should be filed againt them. I am just plain disgusted with mine.
same with mine it just goes to that wavy screen and then does nothing. and did you get yours fixed? plz reply with help :(
Mine just won't start up at all, it's a black screen... What do I do now?! I have 2 PS3s, but one is at my mother's house and she won't let me have it. If there is a way to fix it without getting it replaced, that would be VERY helpful! PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MY PS3 WONT START UP. BECAUSE WHEN I WENT TO SAFE MODE A.K.A THE SECRET MENU I WAS REBUILDING MY PS3'S FILE SYSTEM... NEXT THING U KNOW THINGS WENT HECTIC WHEN MY POWER CORD DISCONNECTED! NOW I GET THIS ERROR SCREEN SAYING "Cannot start The Correct hard disk was not found any suggestions? and will a toshiba hdd work with my ps3 slim?
I held the off button until it cut off to the red light, and waited 20 seconds, then cut power back on and it started correctly
Hey. I have been having a similar problem. About 2 days ago, after i turned on my system it just boooted up with some distorted cpoloured lines on the screen. I turned it off and turned it back on abd it just stayed at the black screen. It randomly boots up without the blackscreen but everytime i try to go into the safe mode and when i do, the sytem freezes again with the same distorted lines. It has displayed messages that the system's HDD is corrupted. I formatted it with my PC, booted up fine, as i tried installing GTA 4 it froze again with the same lines across the screen. I dont know what else to do. Pleas help. thanks in advance!
Well, I have a similar problem to this. I turn on the PS3, my background loads and my settings options load, but nothing else will. My Friends list, my PlayStation Network options, nothing else. I did put the PS3 on Standby Mode, and did Repair File System, but it still has this problem....
Worse still is that sometimes it'll take a long time to Switch Off and sometimes it won't. I have to keep plugging it in and out sometimes. On the ocassional moment, it'll work again. Could somebody please tell me how to resolve this problem? I'd be real grateful if anybody could.
