Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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.
