Basically whenever i turn my Ps3 on it does the startup music and it all seems fine and then it just freezes at the wavy line background bit. I cant connect my controller and i cant do anything but turn my ps3 off at the plug. Im really worried guys plz help me !
Try reinstalling the firmware.
I just downloaded the 3.55 PS3 update and tried it. It got to 80% then froze and turned itself off with the power light flashing red. I tried it again another couple of times and it didn't even start the update. I only just got the PS3 fixed in July with the over heating problem and now this!
I will try this method again later but it's not looking good and i'm starting to lose my faith in Sony's products. If there is another way of repairing this then please advise.
I have also tried the following.
Different hard drive (original 60gb that came with it)
Settings reset (x4)
System restore (x4)
PS3 Update (x3 & will try again in a couple of hours)
I already have the latest update, which is the 3.55 and it still freezes up after only a few seconds of being on. I have no idea what to do about it, can I send it in to playstation or maybe even give it to gamestop or something and get it fixed? Ill try restoring the ps3 and see if that works... Thanks Sony
