You might want to start with a System Restore and a firmware update. Also a controller reset might be in order too.

Hi,

Follow the procedure below to fix the problem on your ps3,

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.

Get off your duff and press the power button on the PS3 hold it down, until it beeps then the system will shut down, all you have to do then is press the ps button on your controller to restart the system.

Ps3 freezing during gameplay, started after most recent system update, wont recognize disk at times.


You need to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM of your ps3.
Follow this guide.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Good Luck!

My ps3 freezes when i press the PS button during gameplay of any


How long do you wait before you turn off your PS3 because in most games if you hit the PS button while the game is loading something or saving to your hard drive it may seem like it froze, but give it a minute and it should go back to normal

My ps3 after in hour of playing freezes and won't play


This is a common problem that can be one or two reasons. One is that your PS3 is overheating during gameplay and is shutting down or freezing. If this is the case you should make sure your ps3 is clean of dust and is in a well insulated area. Try investing in an external fan that will keep your system cool during gameplay.

Secondly you may have a problem with the laser reader. If this is the case you will need to have it repaired by sony. You may be covered under a warranty, so please contact sony to find out your options.

You can contact sony by calling the number listed on the back of almost all of your video game booklets.

Happy Gaming and Good luck to you.
