Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System

PS3 games freezing isssue

Now, I`m pretty aware of the "popularity" of such a problem. But after I`ve looked through different posts where ppl scream out for help I`ve realised that mine is a bit different in terms of freezing. My games would easily load without any problem at all but then after like 10-15 min. of gaming dodgy things start to happen. First it tends to fade out the sound but strangily enough it would fade out only speaches. ( Fifa09 commentators dissappear, COD4 no speaches between players during campaign offline mode and so on) Then the game would slow down and lagg till the next level/halftime whistle/pause menu and then freezes, but only the game itself...i still can exit the game back to the main ps3 menu. It seems like my ps3 disk reader just gets stucked at one certain point on the disk, cause when the game freezes all I can hear is how fast the disk spins in it.
If anyone experienced the same problem share it plz....My babe is out of warranty and being working smoothly for the last year and a half.
BTW I`ve tried system restore, reset settings, format hdd, blueray laser lens cleaning etc.

    Hey Mate. I am having the exact same problem that you are having. I love to play Fifa 09 and only in the last few weeks the commentators have stop talking and when the ball goes out of play thehn I will just be stuck watching them just doodle around the pitch. I bought thr AllShop Ultra ProLens cleaner today with 8 brushes on it and I did the hard reset last night. My blu ray movies keep skipping to. Hopefully this works when I get home. I have a 60GB.

WOW! Firstly, Thank you for the very descriptive description. Secondly, This is a VERY specific issue! I believe that some of the COD issue is "game specific". Like the dialog issues and the lagging. I've seen MANY problems & complaints with COD games. Especially 4. These problems aren't going to go away or get better. But, I'm sure you know that. Since your console is out-of-warranty, I'd strongly recommend contacting "PSR Repairs" You can get a gangster deal on their work.
My console died 14 months after purchase. I bought the extended warranty through WalMart. It almost seems that PS3's run flawless for the year it's under manufactures warranty. Anyway, PSR fixed it. It took about a month, but I got a new hard drive & new Blu Ray lens. It lasted a week & developed a new issue; The picture would pixalate & then I'd get the Yellow Light Of Death! I sent it back for repair. Josh with PSR called to tell me that since the work was starting to surpass the value of the unit, Sony is going to send me a brand new (non-refurbished) unit!
So, my advice is to get your Babe over to PSR asap. www.psr1.com . There's really no other way to comfront all the issues you're having! Good luck!

Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

Ps3 freezing


How is your ventilation for the PS3. Beings the unit is so new, I would look into how well the PS3 is breathing. My friends PS3 gets pretty warm and the air needs to move pretty freely for it to operate efficiently. Just an idea of what could be causing the freezing for you. Hope this helps!!

Sylph again ps3 freeze


This is sounding like a faulty Video Card - The game is running smoothly but the video has frozen it is unfortunate that you have encountered this as it is a particually rare problem with the PS3 - However if you contact Sony support and are still under warranty they will replace it for you - I hope this was of some help to you and hope you have better luck in the future,

Regards,

Ps3 freeze


Hi,
look on Sonys website for patches et,c.
Sometimes they launch games, and realise that theres glitches.
they then create patch-files which you can usually download, to update your console.
if this does,nt work. then you,ve possibly got a faulty game.
Exchange It.
