Well u can try updating your firmware to the newest version.
also if u are playing the psp with the charger in and it is fully charged it will turn off from the power surge that is has when it is full.
i had encounterd the same problem it happend to me 4 times so i guessed that it was the charger
and i unpluged it and it stopped cutting out so try that.

I have a snes that I have had for over 20 years and it has started having problem with some of my games freezing while starting up and the ones that do play have sound distortion. Some play with almos


I am guessing that the console is just getting old then.
Other Screen Problems
  1. Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system.
    We find that video problems occur most when an unlicensed RF switch is used. Make sure the name "Nintendo" is molded onto the RF switch, as opposed to "for use with Nintendo." Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with our systems and may not work correctly.
  2. Check all of the system connections to verify that they are firm and correct.
    • For AV connections
      Remove the AV cables and reinsert them with a slight twisting motion
    • For RF connections
      Make sure the channel switch on the TV and system are set to the same channel (either CH3 or CH4)
  3. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the OFF position. Remove the Game Pak and re-load it, pressing firmly to make sure it is locked in place.
    Important Note: Removing the Game Pak with the power ON will cause the Game Pak image to freeze on the screen. Press Reset to correct the problem. Always turn your system OFF before inserting or removing Game Paks.
  4. Slide the Power Switch on the Control Deck to the ON position.
If the above troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, see below.

My Ps3 keeps freezing up but only on 1 game. I've already tried switching disc with the same game. Can you help?


If it's freezing with the same game it means either one or two things.

Your game data is corrupt, fix them by deleting all instances of the game under Game Data. Make sure you backup your game saves to an external usb drive just in case.

2nd possible reason is you've got a bad sector on your hard drive, if the above doesn't work then I would suggest you swap out your hard drive with a new one. 320gb drives from Best Buy for for $50 so it's a pretty cheap fix ;)

When I put in a movie or game the Playstation 3 will freeze up or give random snow bars. Is there a way to fix this?


Hello

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.


If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.
