Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I bought a 60G PS3 December 2007, I never had any problems with the console until now. I bought motorstorm pacific rift and in the first week of playing motorstorm my PS3 started to frees, but only when I play pacific rift. A friend told me that I need to format my PS3 to get rid of what could be a virus. After long consideration I decided to format my baby (PS3); it took +-4 hours to complete. Thereafter I than moved the gross menu over to system settings than system information. It displayed that I have 47G available of 55G, it should have displayed that I have 55G of 55G available seeing that I just deleted everything from the hard drive. Can anyone help???

There might be a problem with the hard drive itself. Formating the drive shouldn't take that long unless you did the full format option.

As far as viruses go forget about it. There is NO WAY your PS3 can get a virus. It's a linux based machine with crazy encryption. ONLY Sony would be able to do something like that and that's not something they would ever do.

Your question about the 47 vs 55 is a good one. I'm not 100 sure but it's probably due to bad sectors on the hard drive, hence the long format time. Easiest thing for you to do is to swap the drives and see what happens.

Try reseting your display. To do this turn your ps3 off if it isnt already, turn it back on and continue to hold the power button until you hear the beeps. It should reset your display if that is the problem.

PS3 not working after a PS2 game was inserted. How do I fix?


Yes you can! One thing you need to look at is if you have 60G PS3 if so then you need a new one because the 60G are more or less defective and brake easy, why i dont know. If its any other G then you need yo check if the CD is a Blue bottom disk, if so it might be the disk. If that doesn't work grab your Ps3 box call the sony company and they will fix it for FREE!

Ps3 controller will not steer Motorstorm Pacific Rift anymore


Give this hard reset a shot.

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

Let me know if it works.

Best of luck!

ALL GAMES PLAY EXCEPT DOWNLOAD OF WIPEOUT HD / MOTORSTORM RIFT


So, I just discovered that I THOUGHT it was frozen at the health warning screen, but in all actuality it will only let you press the X to confirm that screen with controller number 1 even though it will let you do anything else with ANY controller. Silly, but true... Hope this helps

No Blue Ray Playback


I had the same Motorstorm issue. Was it the Time Trial download by any chance? Unfortunately you'll have to delete the Motorstorm game data (you MAY be able to keep saved games, but I'm not certain) and then you'll find that that Motorstorm miraculously loads up again...

Ps3 online


Perheps you should check what is the capacity of your network since resistance is heavier then motorstorm, if this is the case then speak to your supplier.
