Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Problems since last update

I did a system update on Jan 21st and ever since my PS3 is acting weird. The main problem is that is freezes up when I first turn it on. I have to reset it about 3-4 times before it works right. Also half the time it doesn't recognize my headset and I have to reset the PS3 again in order for it to work. I never had any of these problems until I did the last update. Does anyone know if PS3 programmers are aware of this or it this just an isolated innocent.

My ps3 freezes while playing certain games..i.e. God of War3 and Assassins Creed..What's the problem?


try updating firmware or doing hard reset.

this is a last resort Sony support recommends.


Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Problems/symptons that this appears to have resolved:
-freezing when doing anything
-no harddrive activity
-freezing when trying to use onboard keyboard or bringing up keyboard
-game/movie disc freezes system

My PS3 freezes when i play Fifa 09 Manager mode


try looking for updates and patches for the game, else, reinstall all your fifa 09 files.

if this doesn't work, verify it there are any problems with your disk (dust, for example),

is the problem continues, restore your ps3 system . (or first re-update the system by downloading the latest update in Playstation Site)

Freezing


for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
