My Ps3 freezes every time I turn it on. When i turn it on, it takes 3-5 minutes to freeze again. First the picture stops, then the sound stops shortly after. Whats my problem?


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their untill you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

Hi my playstation keeps freezing and everytime i follow the instructions on the playstation it freezes again. it now wont start correctly. Could you help me please ?


Hello,

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 problem still persist, try the below steps,

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

Take care.

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.

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

PS3 help


sounds like the video board needs to be re-set it is locked into what ever setting it was in. i have seen a few ways to do the power button trick and this seem to work best!!!
follow theses instructions to a "t" and it should work for you.
1. Turn Off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
2. Turn on in back
3. Turn on in front and hold your finger on it 'till it turns off again -
(you get the beep on then the three beeps for reset and it will eventually beep again and turn off)

4. Turn off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
5. Turn on in back
6. Turn on in front hold finger for three beeps

also have you been to the default screen after doing a power button push for three beeps from stand by mode?


As all of these solutions sounds good I can tell you that about 50% of them will be getting to the restore menu and restoring the default settings, however; the other 50% is yet to be figured out at least on our end. Reflowing is not the answer as I have a reflow machine and it will not fix a no video/audio issue. I have had several no video/ No audio and have reflowed the entire board and nothing. Now on the YLOD reflowing in about 60-70% of the cases will work the other 30-40% is component failure and in that case you are almost certainly better off to just get another board.

Sounds like you have either played your playstation to much and it has overheated or your hard drive is messed up, easy way of checking, turn your ps3 on by holding the button on the ps3 but dont take your finger off, it should beep once, then beep again, then it should do a double beep, if this works a menu should come up, do number two, unfortunately all saved data KAPUT, gone, but the good thing is that your ps3 will be fine and working again in no time free of cost my freind, hope this helped

Ps3 is not working


Turn the power off on the switch on the back, and then back on again. Hold down the power button, keep on holding it down after the first beep, but let go once another couple of beeps sound. It should then take at max a minute but then it should show a screen set up section.

Plays, freezes, green lines, won't come back on


It's a GPU problem. Are you comfortable opening up your PS3 or would you rather pay $150 through Sony?

Let me know.

In the meantime you can check out my PS3 blog for some tips, warnings, etc.
