My screen is frozen in updates. It tells me to press ps button to use my controller. What is this?


Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..

Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.

Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.

Hope this helps

When I turn my PS3 on the screen is frozen... I can hear audio sound effects while I browse the menus but can't see what I'm doing. I can turn it off but when I turn it back on it's frozen on the same...


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Ps3 online


Just a quickie but are you up to date with the PS3 software?
Not sure what the latest version is, your PS3 will normally notify you when it needs updating, it may be worth checking in the system update settings
