My ps3 slim wont load any of my games and it freezes when i turn it on. It wont let me look at anything, play an music, or anything. It wont even turn off. What do i do?


all you have to do is pull out the plug and then when u turn it on it wud say that the system did not take of properly and u just press ok. after that u just go to system settings and chose format data.it says that it will delete data but it wont by just pressing your hand on the eject button. it will then delete all the corrupt data and u will still have your tropies and saved data.it shud then read disc and stop freezing.

Games wont load in on playstation 3


If you recently formatted your PS3 it will be restored to its factory defaults as well as the firmware. So you have to hook up your PS3 to the internet to download the latest firmware updates. This should make your games run again.

Ps3 wont load or play any games


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
