PS3 GUI wont load

Postby tag80 » Tue Jun 04, 2013 10:49 am

Hi,

I have been using this product for year, but recently the application failed to load. I click on the PS3 icon in Launchpad, and the application icon appears in the bar, but then disappears. I dont believe anything has changes, and I have removed JAVA and PS3 media centre many times and reloaded. I am running the latest PS3 version and JAVA version.

Please if some one knows how to fix?

Thank you, but I think this solution is for windows operating systems. I have tried to follow this, and in OSX MAC you dont even have a PMS.bat etc.

Thanks,

Is there anything useful in the logfile?

I have searched and searched and I do not have a debug.log file in the contents of my PS3 file. I have looked under all directories, and mainly the JAVA directory?

I've updated the FAQ: Where is the debug.log located?

Thank you, but I can not get the GUI to load at all, therefore I can not access the "DEBUG.LOG" file.

Not from PMS, but it ought to be written to file.

From FAQ: Where are the PMS config, log, database files etc. located?

Specific default locations:
  • Logfiles are typically found in the application working directory or the Temp directory listed above.

* Note: The Application Working Directory on OSX is at
    /Applications/PS3 Media Server.app/Contents/Resources/Java
    Note that in OSX the "PS3 Media Server.app" folder is invisible. Use the "Go to Folder" command (CMD + SHIFT + G in Finder) and paste the path to browse


You will find the file at "/Applications/PS3 Media Server.app/Contents/Resources/Java/debug.log".

I too am running the latest version of Java and also PMS and have exactly the same problem. I had the issue a few months back when 1.7X came out and basically a roll back to a 1.5X version seemed to fix things up but now that won't even work.

I navigate to the folder suggested but there is no debug.log file to be seen. Even a full search of the Mac returns no hits.

Absolutely love the product and would love to see it up and running again - is there any other info I can give to help? I am running OSX 10.8.4, PMS 1.8.2, Java 7 Update 21.

Cheers

Just as an update I have seen this in the system.log file.

JavaApplicationStub[624]: Unrecognized Java VM option ignored: -jar
