Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 3 seems to be broken!

My ps3 suddenly froze while playing madden 09, then when restarted it displays a strange pixelated screen. Sometimes I hear the startup sounds, but pix screen is all that comes up, and sometimes nothing comes up at all. Do you have any ideas what may be wrong? Any help would be awesome, I dont want to send it to Sony...

Your system needs servicing. A very few PS3 have the system get hot enough to trigger a soldering issue that leaves the system in this state. If it's under warranty, your cheapest bet is to send it to Sony, If you bought it from EB Games or Gamestop with a valid warranty, you may be able to exchange it for a refurbished unit.

open your PS3 up and use a dust cleaner to blow the dust off!it could be overheating. and if that works next time you play pull it out of a confined place and when youre done wrap it in a towel and put if where it should be to prevent dust getting in
