SOURCE: im having problems with the playstation freezing when im playing

if the ps3 also shuts down on its again own due to overheating. It is necessary to disassemble the unit and apply AS5 compound and shim the heatsinks to ensure proper contact between the heat sink and the processors. I can do this for $55 or you can send to SONY if under warranty. If not under warranty they will fix for 150+tax call 1800345SONY. if they decide they cant fix it they will send you a reburbished unit, which may , unfortunately, break again..XBOX360 has the same EXACT problems...

its possible that the laser is out of alignment or low power output, older games will use single layer dvd's and newer ones will be dual layer. that might explain your problem. Laser modules are available to buy, but you will need to dismantle quite a lot to install it, and they are quite fiddly.

Hope this helps, good luck. let me know how you get on :D

My ps3 won't play my disk-based games


This sounds a similar problem what I had. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

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

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Playstation 3 shuts down as game loads


Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)

There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.

Cant play turismo 5 only on line


All of the new games try to connect to the internet as soon as the game loads. It's like all the silly errors you get when you turn your computer on without the internet. My ps3 automatically connects me to the internet as soon as I turn it on. You shouldn't be limited to playing online like warhawks. I think it's just an annoyance.

Ps3 wont come on!!


Hey, your screen settings may need to be reset. You can reset your playstation 3 screen settings by first turning of the playstation three, then turning it on by hitting the power button on the console and hold it for 5 seconds. You should hear it beep several times and then it should work.
