Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

PS3 wont load Resistance 2

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

Hi 123helpme,

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. Go click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Click on Video Game console repair services.

SOURCE: Playstation froze; will not play PS3 games or PS1 games

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!

SOURCE: My ps3 it does`nt play any games or dvds

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.

How to fix ps3 yellow light of death 3. tips first

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work, then there are 2 options left for you on how to fix your ps3 safe and fast!

Send your playstation 3 back to Sony

You might think that this is an great option, but take a look at some statistics. Most users had to wait at least 4-6 weeks before they had their Console back. And also, if your warranty is expired, you have to pay a big fat $150,- to get the job done! Does this still sound as a good option?

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.

Ps2 action replay wont work on 60gb ps3


The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.
