Menu on the home screen and the same happens when I eventually get a game on. I managed to do a system restore, and the problem is still there as I can't even set the ps to go live again. PleAse can anyone help, or do I need some sort of program to repair? Many thanks
Hello. Gowbag it seems, based on the information given, it is not your PS3 that is acting up but rather your controller. The PS3, by itself, will not scroll through menus. It requires input from a controller to move. If the controller is bad it will go in one direction or not respond. Either way it is the controller acting up. If you are somewhat savvy in controllers and how they work you could take it apart yourself and fix it. IF you are not I do not recomend this. You will need to get a new controller.
Also is your controller a legitmate Sony Controller? I have heard problems of third party controllers not responding correctly or just being made cheaply.
