GAME WILL LOAD BUT FREEZE MINUTES AFTER LOADING


try doing a factory reset but be warned resetting it deletes all data and restores it back to factory default this should correct the software glich that is causing your ps3 to freez or lock up

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.. You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset

start up screen keeps freezing


My playstation was doing the same thing. I called a service person in South Carolina. He said that the system has crashed and it needs to be repaired by Sony. What he told was if I call the Manufacturer tell them that I was doing a network update and they will fix for free.
