You were in the middle of a battle and stepped out. One of the rules of online gaming is to never stop in the middle of a battle. you must finish the session. if you pause for anything while the game is going on YOU WILL LOSE Finish the battles.

SOURCE: have moved ps3 upstairs and my sky modem is down

from your desk top log into your pc and type cmd and hit enter once you complete that type ipconfig/all and it will show your ip subnet and default getway as well as the dns. copy all previous information

on your ps3 go into your network settings and do every thing manualy

change the ip address - keep everything the same except the last row

dont change the subnet mask and dont change the dns.

if you have a security password for your network you should have or no what it is if you have one.

once you set everything join online

thanks for using fixya

SOURCE: just got a ps3 one

I wrote a tips and tricks article check it out: or since im nice i wrote it again just for you Please help me by rating me highly thanks and here you go...
This is what the PlayStation Forum says:
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
Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System


Sign in

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option)

go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies

check the disc if it has fingerprints or scratches if it does then thats your problem

if you have the 60GB sos mate they have alot of problems

or maybe try this put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it then switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it then put it back on then the fan test should be working this may cool it down

it may be overheating
if this problem still continues go out and buy a inter cooler from a shop

if it STILL CARRIES ON phone up sony

There are 2 things you can do 1) in the back of your ps3 there are 2 cables unplug both of them and wait of 30 min 2) Black ops is a very popular game and people want to play the new maps for multyplayer and zombies so you just wait to download it tomorrow

HI! I have a PS3 and I am unable to play Black Ops online.. I ahve ran connection test and the ip adress is successful, the internet connection is succesful than it says the playstation network failed

Hi lonijoygardi,

Sadly there's a known issue with the PS3 version of Black Ops that sometimes it won't connect to the activision servers. Sadly this is not an issue on the user-end of things so there's nothing you can do besides contacting Activision and letting them know about your issue. It is unknown if Activision or TryArch are working on a fix.

(more details on this story here:

Some people have reported moderate sucess by changing their DNS settings on the PS3 to:

Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:

But it hasn't been proved to work 100%

Sorry i couldn't be of further assistance and i hope this helped you with your issue.

I am connected to my network and when i go to internet settings and do the scan the first two succeed but the playstation network always fails. it says i am signed in but wont allow me use the black ops...

You could possibly have been banned, accidentally or not, because of the recent hacking of the PS3, if you think it is by accident then contact PlayStation's customer service.

My internet connection is good, but i have trouble signing in and when I am able to sign in, I get kicked off. I'm fully updated. One notice says Black ops server is not available at this time, or I get...

While the issue could lie with the servers that host the Black Ops gaming network, there is a small possibility that your home router may be blocking some of the network traffic you need in order to connect properly. I would recommend putting your PS3 into a "DMZ" on your home router. This will allow all internet traffic to get to the PS3. If you do not know how to do that, you can refer to the user manual for your router/modem (or google it)

Well the servers on black ops arent that good so if now the problem is still happening it has to be your internet so order a new router and it should work.
