The "NO VIDEO/PIXELATED VIDEO/FROZEN VIDEO" problem is all too common on the PS3. It results from overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. let it cool and resume and pray

My ps3 wont boot past the title screen!!


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

This will fix it for sure.

Ps3 freezes after start up


Hey guys, same thing happened to me. In case you're looking at this site like I recently had been, I just wanted to post a little update. I bought my PS3 on the Christmas of 2007, and it stopped working after I played an online round of Tekken: Dark Resurrection on July 5. It froze on the wavy part of the introduction of the PS3 system. So what you do is:

1. Press the PS3 "touch" power button and hold it until you hear two buttons "beep"
2. Connect your USB cord to your ps3 controller and press the center button when instructed on the screen.
3. Choose the third choice on the screen which says something about restoring the data (sorry i cant remember i know its the third choice though)
4. When it asks you its question say "Yes." and it will begin the restoring process with the download bar.
5. When its complete it may make you do step 4 once more, so just do it again, or any more times it asks, until it finally restarts properly. ( I had to do it two times)

I hope this helps you guys, it helped me the first day it stopped working!

Ps3 freezing


You are having a heat problem caused by dust build up. You need to get some canned air and blast it out from the front and right side. Just stick the little straw into a bunch of random holes and let it rip. 80-90% of the dust will come out the back and help you out. Also, make sure you do not have it in an enclosed area on an entertainment center shelf. If for some reason the PS3 dies, call up Sony and get it replaced. Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
