Re: PS3 won't start up?!?!

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

Re: PS3 won't start up?!?!

If your describing the screen as being frozen when you try loading up the XMB then it is software related problem this problem could be fixed by going into the system options menu (you access it by pressing and holding down the power button when the ps3 is in standy by mode anyway u hold it until u hear a 3rd beep then u let go I think anyway its just a black screen with various system options try the system restore one and if that doesn't work post here again...

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

Re: PS3 won't start up?!?!

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.
