When playing ps3 it keeps freezing


Hard Drive

If your PS3 lags or freezes when loading content from the hard drive, the drive either lacks free space or is faulty. To create more space, try removing items from your hard drive or getting a new hard drive with a higher storage capacity. A faulty hard drive must be replaced.

I had my ps3 after a few months when it first came out but in the past year in a half it started to freeze up when i hit ps button, sign in to psn when in game (multiplayer), it will not play dvds, when i...


Dear, before you get in touch with Sony technical support you may want to try to use the PS3 recovery options. The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this: Make sure the PS3 is turned off Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep, just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try) It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable, Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu. Be aware that you may lose all of your previously saved data (NOT trophies, they're stored online so don't worry).

My PS3 wont start games when im signed in on PSN


HI I HAD THAT PROBLEM SO I ASKED THE EXPERT..HE SOLVED MY PROBLEM! BASICALLY THERE A CORRUPTED DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER WHICH NEEDS FIXING.
QUICK STEPS: PLEASE NOTE YOU MAY LOSE YOUR SAVED DATA SO BEST TO BACK UP SYSTEM TO A USB FIRST.
ONCE YOU BACKED UP YOUR SYSTEM FOLLOW THIS STEPS ONLY IF YOUR SURE. THIS WORKED FOR ME, IT WORKS 90% OF THE TIME SO I WAS TOLD BY THE EXPERT. REALLY DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH DATA HAS BEEN CORRUPTED.
QUICK STEP:
  • TURN PS3 TO STANDBY BY PRESSING THE BUTTON THATS ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON,YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5SECONDS LATER, THEN THE THIRD BEEP. HOLD BUTTON DOWN UNTIL THE LIGHT TURNS RED THEN MOVE FINGER.
  • NOW SWITCH ON PS3 HOLDING POWER BUTTON ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON DOWN YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5 SECS LATER, THEN TWO BEEPS TOGETHER.LET GO OF BUTTON WHEN YOU HEAR TWO BEEPS.
  • IT SHOULD SAY SOMETHING ABOUT CORRUPT DATA. AGREE TO IT. SOON YOU SHOULD HAVE A 6 OPTION MENU COME UP.
  • PRESS NUMBER 3...RESTORE SYSTEM FILES
  • IT SHOULD THEN RESTART COMPUTER.
  • NOW TRY PLAYING YOUR GAME ONLINE.
  • ITS MEANT TO WORK AS IT DID FOR ME.
IF IT DOESNT WORK THAT MEANS THERES ANOTHER PROBLEM. I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO ASK THE EXPERT. THEY TELL YOU STEP BY STEP, THEY FIXED MINE IN HALF HOUR. ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY.IF THEY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM THAT IS! HOPE THIS HELPED YOU GUYS...GOODLUCK!

Ps3 shut down...was playing gta and consul turned off during game, when try to turn back on it starts comes up on screen then freezes and shuts down again, also the consul does not pick up controlers...


Hello catanach838

The system software may be corrupt causing issues. Enter Safe Mode and select System Update. System Update will reinstall the system software. If you don't know how to enter Safe Mode, follow the instructions below.

Step 1
Turn off the PS3 by holding the power button on the front of the unit till the power light is red.

Step 2
Touch and hold the power button. You will hear the first beep, meaning the PS3 is powering on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).

Step 3
Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PS3 to power on. Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset. Continue to hold the power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button.". Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PS3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode. You should then see the Safe Mode menu.

If this doesn't work, try the options listed in the Safe Mode menu in the following order:

Restore Default Settings
Restore File System
Rebuild Database
Restore PS3 System

N.B. There is a possibility that with any of these procedures, data could be corrupted and/or lost.

Hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further assistance.

PS3 game stopped playing, screen went blank


hay if you fell it getting hot fast it's the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety precaution. so there for it will keep freezing of shouting down.
