Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Im getting a lot of slowdown on some games ( local only, not over network )

Hi Guys and Gals.

On quite a few games now I am getting a lot of slowdown on my PS3. Its most noticeable on COD4 during airstrikes but I am also getting it on Rainbow 6 2 and on Conflict Denied ops. It freezes for around a second or so while it seems to try and sort itself out before carrying on fine. Its only 7 months old so well within warrenty but before I call sony and get the usual fob offs, I want to be able to say that I have tried some basic remedies, any suggestions would be welcomely received

You could try changing your disk speed in your settings, or you can try using a different tv.

I want to connect my 360 to wireless internet how do i

Hi there.

Quite a few easy steps to get up and running.

Firstly you need to make sure the wireless networking is enabled on your router.

Then go onto the xbox network settings and you should see a wireless network you recognise as your own.

Try to connect to this network and it should ask you for a passkey/security password.

Enter the security code for your wireless network and away you go.


If you struggle with anything please post and i will help best i can

There is a fairly major problem right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network. Some consoles are not synching properly and causing problems like you describe.

For a full breakdown please see this FixYa Tip.

Hey how are you? My problem with my PS3 is that the sound shuts off while im playing a game doesnt matter what im playing just shuts off! and then comes back on, can you help? i read one of your postings(i...


How old is your machine? and how long is the thing on before that sound quits?

If its dusty inside , it will heat up a lot quicker (maybe causing the sound circuit to quit)

You can shoot some compressed CO2 (dust-off) into the unit

You may also have a faulty cable

Call of Duty 4 for xbox 360

i phoned microsoft about the problem, cuz i've been getting the same thing on other games too and at one point not even connecting on the dash, but when i test the connectivity everything is fine. the person who i spoke to at microsoft said "its a problem with x-box live, and they are working 24/7 to try to resolve this. it is a problem which started x-mas 07" looks like were all going to have to grin and bare it for a while because by the sounds of it they aint got a clue whats up with it.
