Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Irritating lines. This problem doesn't occur regularly, but sometimes when i'm playing games, lines will begin to extend from the characters heads or hands. This problem normally occurs when I play Soul Calibur, NBA 2K9, Saints Row 2, or the Resident Evil 5 Demo. I don't know whats going on. Do any of you have a solution, or experience the same issue? Any help would be appreciated. By the way, I have an original 60gig model PS3 that was available at the PS3 launch.

    I have a similar problem but it only happens with downloadable games. It happens in flower and burnout paradise, I also have had demos lock up my console.

    It never happens with disc games. Although I have had the console since launch, I haven't played it nearly enough to believe the graphics card was failing from overuse.

Sometimes the console will not load to the screen where the big (xbox360) icon, the lights around the on/off button flash profusely and it seems as though the screen has frozen. if the loading gets past...


Those are common error on the XBox 360, after some extended use. You can try to send it to be repaired, and if it happens again, consider the purchase of a newer model.

hay if you fell it getting hot fast it's the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety precaution. so there for it will keep freezing of shouting down.
