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

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

Sometimes my ps3 freezes while loading also during gameplay and just in gameplay there are color streaks and glitches occur


Hi there,

This sounds like a problem with the HDD. If you have any save files you wish to back up, use the Backup Utility under the settings menu. Once you've done that, Format the PS3. If you are still experiencing problems you will need to contact Sony. Their number is 1-800-345-7669.

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!

One fix for freezing during blu-ray movies is the go to video setting find a setting called BD 1080p output 24Hz (HDMI) set it to OFF. The lines on your disk could be a laser drive that need looked at dirty or some misalignment maybe needs a new laser.

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.
