My ps3 isn't loading games

Before the when plaing games they just froze now the console just wont load the games , you dont even hear the console even trying to load the lazy thing. Rang the store where i got it and they only said it cant be fixed only replaced with a new one but at a cost. I also asked about sony technical support and they'll tell me the same that it cant be fixed only replaced.

Ok, first, copy your save files onto a flash drive or external hard drive. you can either copy an paste your files, or, if you have an external, you can go to backup utility in the settings. If you dont care about your non-online saves and install datas(you can always re-install), you can just skip that part and just go to settings, system settings, and go to format utility. follow the on screen steps and format your internal hard drive. when done, if you copied your files, you can go to system settings and transfer the files back. If this doesnt work then you will have to get a new ps3, but my friend had the same problem, and reformatting his ps3 fixed it.

My ps3 wont up load any games

First, check if the game CD has any scratches or is dirty. If that isn't the issue then there might be something loose in the drive, remove all the cords and game CD and slightly shake the PS3. If you hear any noise then that will be the issue. You would need to take it to get repaired if you have no experience with this.

Ps3 wont load games or movies ps3 froze during

This is usually caused by a bad laser. Try cleaning it first to see if that helps. If it doesn't then it will need to be replaced. Check out or call 214-222-5788. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty.

Games wont load

try reseting
  • Make sure the system is off.
  • Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds - until you hear the second beep.
  • That's it, your video settings are reset and you should be able to choose your input and configure it from there

  • Also
    Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).
    Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
    1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
    2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
    3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
    4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

    alsoMe and some other people thought that the Reset button was on the back, on the upper center with the white marking. Thats not the reset button. The reset button is to the right. You need a machanical pencil (with lead extended) to poke it.

    My ps3 will play ps3 games good until about five minutes in and then freezes usually at a loading screen, this is with multiple games as well so i dont think its the games so whats wrong?

    you can wait for like a hour maybe to see if it will load and if the loading scene is still loading then it must be working and wont quit until it is like overheated or something i dont have a PS3 i just had a broken down X-Box 360
