    I am having a similar problem. It began when I started getting a blank screen when attempting to load PS Home. Then I tried to play Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds the other day and it just stays on a loading screen but never loads. The really frustrating thing is I have about 54 PS3 games and about 30 PS2 games and they all seem to work fine with the exception of Hot Shots, Motorstorm Pacific Rift (original Motorstorm works fine though), MGS4, and Dark Sector. I thought at first this might be a Sony thing because of the titles and Home not working, but other PS3 exclusive games are working fine and Dark Sector is not exclusive or Sony. This problem just seemed to happen overnight and I've tried reinstalling games and Home and that doesn't seem to work. The only other thing I can think of is that my ISP connection was lost a couple times and I had to reset my modem and router. But internet connectivity is fine now and the PS Store loads in no problem. I have a 60GB model and have never had this problem before, any suggestions, please help.

I have seen this problem a lot lately. Make sure you run a system update and update to the latest firmware which is currently 2.60 this should resolve your issue.

When i try to play online on fifa 11, it freezes and i cant go back. then i have to switch the PS3 off. it keeps happening and i can't play online now


This problem has nothing to do with your PS3!! Its Fifa 11 which is very full of glitches. This freezing problem is a known bug and Fifa or EA doesnt seem to care about it. if you search online you'll see multiple people with similar complaints on EA forums and few or no replies from EA. They havent come up with a fix yet. all you can do is wait for an update (ie. Fifa 12)

When i am using my PS3 i can put a game in whilst off of the PSN and it will work however as soon as i sign into the PSN to go on a game online or perfomr the updates it crashes out and goes to a blank...


You can try resetting all your network settings on the system itself including your PSN sign in info. After clearing it all out and resetting the settings you should be able to relink your PSN account to the system and sign in. There could be some corrupt cache or update files in the system as well so you may have to do a system restore to defaults if the first method is a fail.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

hello try a fan test to see if the fans are working properly , take the power lead out of the back then reinsert the lead in while doing this press and hold the eject button you should hear the fans boot up. this may blow all the dust out, also try an update on the console good luck

After fifa 10 loads and you press to start game


The blank screen can be fixed it is normally down to the display chip getting too much heat, you can fix it yourself or you can send it in and Sony will fix it for you.

Fifa 10 keeps freezing normally this is at the start when loading. Any ideas please ?


First make sure no other games are freezing. If other games freeze also, then the problem is not with Fifa 10. If your other games are fine, you will need to replace Fifa by either an exchange or, if stores won't do that for you, you'll have to sell and purchase a new game.

The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.

Ps3 problem


its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
