This is on my sony ps3.every time i try to go online for a game it freezes. i can log in online before i start the game and the when i try to load the game it freezes. if i load the game first and then try...


Try playing a game not online.

If it freezes while you ARE NOT online:

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

If you do, you must disassemble your drive and take out the laser to see exactly which laser you will need to purchase.

If you can play your games OFFLINE just fine, then you may have a hard drive problem. You will need to try the above and then repost with your new findings.

I've read that deleting the files for the game and/or signing out of PSN helps (I haven't tried either, but I can't get past the title screen and cutscenes without my PS3 freezing)
