That is a hard drive issue. My buddy had the same thing happen to his.

If it is not under warranty, it will cost you around $200. Sony sends you a box, you ship it to them and then they ship it back when it's fixed, which round trip takes about a month.

All of my other N64 games work perfectly, but when I put in Donkey Kong 64 it always freezes during the 64 logo or the Dolby thing. I tried trading it in for a different one, but the second one freezes in...


Well there could be an internal issue with the console then or video games consoles are senseitive to heat and it could be an over heating issue. Dust acts as a baricade and it makes video game console over heat 10 times faster than their normal rate.

My 360 is about 2 months old and it has always worked perfect. But all of a sudden one day it just stopped reading the disks I put in. It says its reading then 2 seconds later says "open tray". All games...


Sounds like you may have to send it to microsoft to fix it. Go online to xbox.com and start a repair. If its only be 2 months you should still have a warrenty

My ps3 is freezing


Hey.

I might sound like a stupid solution, but if the PS3 is in a dusty area it sometimes freezes.. Try to vacume clean it.. Also, is your fan on and does it sound ok. It might freeze due to overheating. If it only freezes when you play games on a disc, it might be a problem with the laser reader, which could also be due to dust.

Hope some of it helped.

Regards

Sound all of a sudden stopped working


Remove any games from unit. Remove unit from charger, if that is its condition. remove battery from unit. Allow unit to sit for 5 min. replace battery. Power up unit, re-set initial settings and check for sound. No sound? wire inside unit going to slide switch for volume has come detached, or switch itself gone bad.

Check setup and setting to make sure sound is not muted, although I do not recall that being one of the options.

My 360 keeps freezing


No red lights? Do you have your system properly vented? If you own an older system you may want to consider purchasing a cooling fan. Also some games are known to have a freezing glitch "Ex: Rainbow 6 vegas 1" If the games are freezing all the time after just 10 minutes that sounds like something you may want to contact Microsoft about repairing

My wii freezes in-game and won't respond at all


It almost sounds like the Wii is overheating. Make sure the unit is in a well ventilated area and that it isn't dusty (some canned air will help with that.) Also, change the orientation of the system. i.e. if it is on it's side, lay it down flat, if it is flat put it on its side.
