Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Flashing colours when playing new COD 5.

My son just brought home the new COD 5 game. He loaded the required update and proceeded to play. Once the game went thru the intro and menu, when he went into play, the video had flashing colours appearing in different spots all thru the graphics. The game plays great with the exception of the flashing colours in the graphics. It is not the game as we took it back to the store and they tried it on their system and it worked just fine. They did give us another game anyway and the problem still persists. It only happens with this game. It does not happen with any other games. Any help would be appreciated as my son is walking around like he has just lost his dog.

I can GUARANTEE you it happens with other games..you just havent tried EVERY game out there for the ps3, as this would be impossible. Your RSX video processor is overheating, very common with graphic intensive games such as COD5....how do you fix it? well it needs to be disassembled and reflowed and/or thermal pasted. or call sony and send it back for 150plustax...or we fix that for 65. goodluk

download the file and follow instructions, you will need a non update DSi or a DS Lite to upgrade your R4. Never update until the cart markers have found a fix because all update will try block 3rd party contents

Was playing COD 5 and then after a game was over, went to switch to the next map and it just said Loading... Loading... With the COD logo saying loading. It never loaded, so I waited waited, then had to...


well, it must be a problem with your game files, because most loading processes are done by the Installed game files .
if other blu-ray games are running well, i guess you don't need to worry about the lens .

please try:
  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
else, contact Sony support centre for possible hardware issues checking (i belive there isn't anything wrong with your ram or gpu units....)

I have a ps3 and it will play any other games but cod 5


This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.
