I heard an answer to this in another reply on a different site. i think the solution is turn the system off completely for an hour or two then turn it on and hold the on/off button for a few seconds. this should reset the system. hope this helped.

I have really big freezing issues with my ps3. I think I know what the problem is but I have no idea if this problem is new and if it can be solved. The problem is, if I go in a game doesn't matter...


What your having there is a bluray problem, when you play a game will the menu come out when you press the PS middle Button? if you answer yes then you have a damaged bluray drive. I would recommend you to look for a local repair shop or send it to sony as they are not easy to repair, if your going to repair it your self then you can find the parts in ebay for around $60. try to get the full drive instead of the lens as they are more easy to install

Thanks

When i am using my PS3 i can put a game in whilst off of the PSN and it will work however as soon as i sign into the PSN to go on a game online or perfomr the updates it crashes out and goes to a blank...


You can try resetting all your network settings on the system itself including your PSN sign in info. After clearing it all out and resetting the settings you should be able to relink your PSN account to the system and sign in. There could be some corrupt cache or update files in the system as well so you may have to do a system restore to defaults if the first method is a fail.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

I can play offline but evertime im playing and hit the ps button my ps3 freezes and i have to turn it off and back on. if im already signed in to psn and try and load a game while signed in it freezes


it sounds like your internet connection is lagging very badly if it freezes on hitting the home button if you can try to move your ps3 closer to your network wireless router.

I have the same problem. My PS3 had firmware 2.46 and the Drake's didn't has any problem, never freeze. After I conect my PS3 to intenet (I need update the firmware and download PSN sofware) the troubles begins. Actually I've firmware 3.0, and Uncharted is freezed frequently, then turn off the console, and turn on again, when XMB is ready, go to PSN Home, and back, then go to play to Uncharted, generally unfreeze it.

**USE A FLASHDRIVE FIRST TO BACK UP YOUR SAVED GAMES**


Settings > System Settings > Restore PS3™ System

Delete all hard disk content and restore the system software to its default settings. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform this operation.

After the operation has been completed, the initial setup screen will be displayed. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the operation.

Notices
  • When you perform this operation, all data on the hard disk will be deleted. Also, the system software will be restored to its default settings. Be careful not to accidentally delete important data as the changes cannot be undone. Data loss or corruption is the responsibility of the user.
  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system during this operation. If the operation is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • During this operation, the power button on the system front and the PS button on the wireless controller are not active.
  • You cannot use this feature to go back to an earlier version of the system software.
  • You can shorten the formatting time by selecting [Quick Format] from the hard disk format methods. However, in this case it may be possible for some deleted data to be restored if a specialized tool is used. Select [Full Format] when formatting a hard disk that contains important or sensitive data.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!
