PS3 Freezes every time on startup - Can't do anything!

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?

No problem!

A pleasure that I could help someone nearly 3 years on! I still have the 3rd PS3 I got out of that. My original fatty ended up going in the bin as it was becoming more hassle than it's worth. Bought the 2nd one and because I had the same problem with that one they upgraded me to the latest one (red 500gb), and then I figured it out... Win win eh? I barely use it now. Sold all my games and rock band stuff to pay for a moving van last year. I've only used it for the tv apps and even then I can get all that on Apple TV/Mac/iPad or torrent failing that. I imagine I'll end up keeping it gathering dust for 30 years till it's worth something again now!

Have fun everyone.

Hold power button till it beeps then continue to hold till you hear to more beeps then release.it will pop up a menu then go to restore default settings . Well at least it worked on my 2 ps3 that are different generations and it happened on the same day. I didn't loose any data so hopefully it works for you

Hey guys, so recently I had the same exact problem, my PS3 would freeze on the startup, and would not do anything else. So I turned off the PS3, and held down the power button when starting up again to go to the menu, I used the Restore System Default setting and after going through a few steps it was working in order again, just a piece of advise, hope it works for ya!

Here's how it works you do the 3 beeps thingy and then you choose the restart system option and then your game should come on black on ur screen and all you have to do is wait for about 5 minutes and something will come up you choose and then the startup screen should come on but no menu so you just have to wait another 5 minutes worked for me
