do you see the XMB and also I think the wavy lines you are seeing are the background for the XMB. also I know this seem a bit strange but have you actually tried phoning Sony ?? I don't know but it's worth a shot to do that.

what's the worse that could happen. ;)

You sound like you need to phone sony. There very helpful and normally bring a replacement out within the week. I was out of warranty and they still did it for free :)

Did you have to send them yours first? Oddly, shortly after reading this post actually, my PS3 did the same thing last night. Just stopped reading discs.
I have to send it back to Sony, they aren't sending a replacment though.
I just got the thing in March too!

I rang them and talked to someone and he said about turning it off and when the red light is showing hold the button until it beeps twice then that didnt work so they are sending someone to exchange over the ps3's free of charge :)
i got mine in around February and the guy said that the error was due to the 2.50 update

Hmmm, that's cool, that they'll come exchange it for you.
I have to wait a while they get mine, and either fix it or send a replacement, all of this through the mail. Either way it's getting fixed for free.
Sony has always been good when my stuff craps the bed.

My PS3 died and I created a thread (with Sony Support number). Have a read, any questions, let me know. They usually turn it round in a few days.
