Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 3 problem, PLEASE HELP!!

Whenever I play a PS3 game it will work fine for about 30 minutes, sometimes more or less, then my controller wont respond anymore. The game is strangely still working, sound and picture, but my controller can't do anything. I have 2 different controllers and they both experience this problem, so i doubt that the problem is with the controllers, also this happens with any game i play. Finally, i think that there is something wrong with the console itself. If anyone knows a solution, or what the problem is, please reply with a solution. Thanks.

Try a wired controller. those batteries on the wireless controllers are cheap. the console might be dirty so cleaning the air vents can help it run smoothly. as long as its not overheating then youre good to go.

My game BFBC2 won't load! Whenever i turn on my PS3 it works fine. When I put the game in the disk icon pops up. Normal. But when I click it my screen goes black. It's a brand new game too! I'm sick of it!...


I'm not and expert but this helped me, turn of the system and then there is a switch on the back. Turn that switch off and let it sit for about one minute. That should work.

Ps3 controller won't turn on...


hi..

Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&thread.id=3290911

but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY..

thank u

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

My playstation wont play any discs at all


It's a Sony defect. Drives only last 1-3 years, sometimes less, with average use.

That's the number one problem that I see with the PS3.

Check out my blog for help fixing the problem.
