Try to reset your video first, by holding down the power button on startup(when the red led is on) till is beeps a second time (about 6 seconds or so). Some times the video settings get corrupted some how and it just need a kick with the restart.

My playstation 3, which i bought this christmas, new, is crashing alot. Alot more every day. we play call of duty black ops but it does it on a couple other games as well


Usually heat or bad sectors/ corrupt sectors on the hard drive will cause this issue.

I'd recommend getting two cans of compressed air, taking it outside and clearing out the dust, then when you play cod run a mini fan directly onto the unit.

COD runs heavy on the graphics hence it happening more with that game than others ;)

My PS3 keeps freezing on every game I play online. WTF? Please help. Do I have to return the SOny? I worked fine up iuntil a couple of days ago


SAFE MODE

1) Place you finger on the on/off sensor keep it their until your console turn off. Remove your finger.

2) Place you finger back on the on/off sensor keep it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3) Choose the last option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A system restore will delete all saved game data. It is recommend backing up your console if possible.

PS3 Graphics Issue


if the problem persists outside of the ps3, i'd say its time for a new tv. however if it doesnt you can try checking your video plug and make sure its still securely in there

I just got a ps3 for the last couple weeks and


Replace or check the cable form the PS3 to the TV...there maybe a short or loose connection in the cable that is causing the color to be missing, especially if you are using component(Y) or composite cables(RGB).

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL. THANKS & GOOD LUCK.
