Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I put the disc in and it starts and after the PLAYSTATION 3 logo flashes up and makes the sound, the screen stays black and doesn't change. I try and press the ps button but nothing happens. The only way to get out of it is to switch it off at the power and turn it back on. It has happened once or twice to GTA IV but Resistance 2 doesn't work at all. Also while playing GTA IV it froze once and i had to switch it off and back on.
Any help would be great.

SOURCE: screen is black
It sounds like your PS2 is not booting up. If you get opening screen with no disc in the PS2 your motherboard is botting up ok. If your not getting the screen with the circling dots when you start up the PS2 your motherboard has a problem. If your PS2 does boot up and the screen goes balck after the disc is running, then your Disc is corrupted, and you will have to get a new Game disc. Please post some more details as to what exactly is happening to your PS2. We will get you a solution. You may need to send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for repair.

Hi this is a huge problem with ps3 it can be one of two problems the first is the expensive one this is over heating if the ps3 has been used on carpet or placed on top of something like dvd player or video or cable or sky box this causes the ps3 to overheat and the damage is usually to expensive to repiar the other problem alot of people are having is with the fan blowing dust onto the laser lense and this causes the ps3 two stop laying certain games if your warrant has run out you could remove the case and clean the lense but dont use any kind of liquid only use dry cloth but a soft one do it gently.
I dont avise doing this if your ps2 still has warranty left as this fault is covered by warranty and they will replace your ps3.
Im going out for couple of hours now so if you need further assistance let me know ok

SOURCE: Random DNS Error
You may need to manually configure your PS3 connection on the console. Let's see.. I can suggest to first go to your Settings Menu -> Network Settings -> Choose:"Settings and Connection Status List" this will display a pretty detailed information about your connection to your local gateway (router).. Check specifically for Primary and Secondary DNS. In my experience, using the PS3's auto setup for the connection seems to enter the default gateway's ip (labeled "Default Router" on PS3 Status Screen) in place of the real DNS entries..
Question: Sooo how do you check your primary/secondary DNS for your network? Answer: On your PC, open a web browser and enter your default gateway ip into the browser.. log into your router (assistance can be found in your router manual or by calling your router manufacture). You should see a status page of sorts that displays your ISP's primary/secondary DNS entries.. Simply transfer those two IPs to your PS3 manually to correct the DNS issue.
Hopefully that should resolve your issue!

sad to say this, but maybe formatting the HD and then do a system update, might remove a possible glitch, but u will lose all info in the HD,other than that, i dunno.
Download an update to a memory stick with ur pc in case u need it.
