Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 3 freezes during gameplay.

Hello. I have had a playstation 3 for about a year now and up until this afternoon have not had any problems. However, now, whenever I start playing a game, the system will freeze. This happens with all of my games so I don't think its just a scratch or something. My best guess is that my lens has to be cleaned, which I have no idea how to do.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,

Error occurred during the start operation (8001050f)

the problem is global except for the slim version. dont try to use your playstation until it has been sorted by playstation. it was on the radio this afternoon saying you could loose game data if you tried to play your games. only games with the trophie system have been affected and the psn network is down its nothing to do with the blu ray player or your playstation. its the network.
