Re: graphics get squarish
Sounds like your GPU is cooked. The Graphics Processing Unit on the PS3 has started tohave issues with overheating. If your PS3 is still under warranty, go to http:www.us.playstation.com and go to the service link. There you will find the info you need to have your unitfixed. I have had to have mine serviced twice. From the day I sent it to them, it was less than ten days when they returned it. Be sure to take screenshots of the graphics problems you are having. If you do not, chances are all they will do is clean the unit, nd add cooling grease to the GPU and cell broadband engine This will help for a few days. But if the GPU is cooked, it will revert to the graphic "glitches" in a few days after service. Heat is the number one enemy of all electronics. Be sure and turn your PS3 off when not in use. Even if it is in "pause" mode, or just on the dashboard it is still causing wear and tear n the unit. Some games will still work fine with a bad GPU. But graphics intense games like Bad Company that run between 60-120fps cause alot of stress on the gpu. Good luck, and Happy Gaming!

man lsn, if u have an old PS3 then im so sorry to tell u that there is one hell of a miss at there company, all the old PS3 console are totally F***d up, now lsn man im living in Jordan and there is a center here replacing the old PS3 with a brand new one for free, now if u dont have such thing in ur country i want u to try something im 99% sure that it will work ok, JUST format your PS3 or try to remove the latest update, i was looking in PS3 blogs and this thing has to do with an update so try to format your PS3 and REMOVE the Update. Formate, Restore do what ever it takes to Remove the latest updates ok, if this didnt work plez send me back i will figure something else dont wury budy ok
Im sorry to tell you this, but your BlueRay unit is dead.
i had the same problem some weeks ago after i update, sadly i didnt have any warrenty left, so i had to replace the blueray myself.
If you still have warrenty left, then use it :)
If you dont have any warrenty left your still able to send it to sony's service center, but this gonna cost you about 150$. but if you got a little handyman hidden inside of ya, then id advise you to replace it yourself, guides and tutorials how to replace it can be found on youtube, and you save money and time on doing it yourself. :o)
most likely your ps3 or ya graphics.ya ps3 eye must be realy damaged and can read only those games.i got those same games cod4 and cod5 it could also be tyranch the company who made the realy gory and bloody kills for cod5 ive heard some tyranch games do damage to ya ps3!
DO NOT send any electronic unit to this company. They claim SO much on their website, but they DO NOT deliver. Turn around time and "worry free shipping" was reasonable. Took them 5 days to fix after they received the PS3 from UPS. Took 2 days for the package to get there and back (they are in PA) and 2 or 3 days for the original "molded" box to be shipped to you at the start. So it was like 10 business days (around 2 or 3 weeks). The bad part? The most important part: THE PS3 STILL DIDNT WORK. I just got mine back, Im gonna call them tomorrow to get a refund.
ps3 40 gb are going bad alot, you have a 1 year warrentee on the ps3 from sony, from the day you purchased it. i hope you have the reciept, call sony and request a repair box or RMA box if its under warrentee, usually take about 2 weeks to get back, make sure you remove and games CD from it before shipping.
hi im silver surfer, i work in a ps3 repair center and have a little bad new's for you all that own ps3 consoles.you can NOT just take out a bd drive "blue ray drive" and put it in another console or put a new bd drive in a console. IT WONT WORK... the drive has to be programed to your ps3.and to do this your ps3 has to be put into factory mode to program it,this equipment you need to do this is very hard to come by,
hey, it seems your ps3 optical drive might be broken. if you unplug and restart your console and it still doesn't spin at all, then the drive is just burnt out. if you have a warranty with a store, just bring it in, they should replace it right there. such as best buy. But, if you do not have a warranty or it has ran out, you will have to send it in to Sony. Sorry to be the barer of bad news, im sure this was not the answer you were hoping. i have had my share of console returns with the ps2. thanks for listening.
