That means it can read some of the disc but not all. Are the discs clean? If so the bluray laser is dying. You will need to spend about $70 for a new laser or $150 to get a new unit from Sony.

I have a playstation 1 game that i play on my 3,


Yes, GameStop and EB games both sell an adaptor you can buy, I believe it's around $20 that allows you to save and copy your data from the PS3. I have Gran Turismo 3 and I had just about everything in it on my PS2; I thought I had to start all over when I got my PS3 but I got one of these adapters and it worked wonders. Same applies for PS1 games.

Good luck and if I've helped you please give me a good rating.

Respectfully,

Don

Since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot


Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge


or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

DEEP FREEZE


HI, this is an issue that concerns the Hard disk. the Hard drive disk is corrupt. there are sectors that are unreadable at this time. this is a Sony tech repair and, you will need send this unit to Sony for this repair. its normally a 190 dollar repair plus, the shipping charge as well.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.
