This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.

My playstation 3, which i bought this christmas, new, is crashing alot. Alot more every day. we play call of duty black ops but it does it on a couple other games as well


Usually heat or bad sectors/ corrupt sectors on the hard drive will cause this issue.

I'd recommend getting two cans of compressed air, taking it outside and clearing out the dust, then when you play cod run a mini fan directly onto the unit.

COD runs heavy on the graphics hence it happening more with that game than others ;)

Welcome to the servers at call of duty :)
I've got a ps3 and call of duty 4+5, half the fun of the game is playing with a mate and I've had exactly the same problem as you. It just seems to be about trial and error sometimes, have tried connecting like you for over an hour before and then on other days it just connects wth my mate straight away.
Sometimes it helps to join a game(so you can see and hear other players) then invite your mate, if he/she to reply to your invite is quick sometimes you can get in that way.
The only other bit of advice is to try different times of the day as the load on the servers does change throughout the day, apart from that it really is an issue with activision and for me the playstation network
hope it gets better for you

Some games won't instal


I'd start with a System Restore.

Go to SETTINGS, System Restore.

This will set your PS3 back to factory default.

If you have game saves copy them to an external usb drive or flash drive.

Call of duty won't load * world at war ps3


Your guys answers ****!! Do not delete the game data that is stupid and only works for a handful of people.1. Log off of your playstation account.2. Load the game ( it should now load fine while not being logged onto PSN)3. When reaching the start menu do not press start!!!!4. Tap the home button and log onto your account.5. After logged on tap the button again and the game will run fine.

PS3 won´t read a game worked perfectly 2 hours ago


3 Options that you should check


If you did leave the PS3 on it is possible that it did this while the console idled

During the period this game was in the console did you accidently bump/knock over you PS3? If so it would not suprise me if the game got scratched from this

Is your PS3 well ventilated? An arising issue with these consoles is overheating is becoming a factor in both damaging hardware and games


Hope my comment was of some assistance ;)

Totally Wrecked.


sorry man, i know how it feels.
your ps3's disk drive is dirty. try using a lens cleaner CD.
if that does not work, clean all of the dust using compressed air. AND since its not under warranty, go ahead and open it up. use the compressed air to blow allover the ps3's inside. How to open PS3.
If that does not work, your disk drive is bad. either find a replacement Drive online or sell it on eBay.
