Hello

The Sony Playstation 3 suffers from software bugs like any other device. These bugs can cause the PS3 to freeze during game play, which takes away from the overall experience of using the PS3 hardware. In order to combat these bugs, Sony software team frequently sends out PS3 software updates that will defuse any major bugs as they arise.

Go to the official Sony Playstation 3 update website and download the latest PS3 software update. Each update that Sony releases fixes bugs and adds new features.

Connect a USB flash drive or memory card to your computer and create a folder inside of the USB drive or memory card named "PS3." Create a folder inside of that named "Update."


Save the downloaded PS3 update file inside of the "Update" folder on the USB flash drive or the memory card.


Pull the USB flash drive or the memory card out of the computer and connect it to your PS3. Select the "System Update" option from the PS3 main menu.


Select "Update via Storage Media" from the next screen and press the "X" button to install the latest PS3 update on your machine. This will fix any software bugs that are preventing your PS3 from working properly.

The device freezes after the welcome screen, updater won't work.


It may have the latest firmware already on it. To reset your Sansa Mp3 player2_bing.gif.1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.
You will lose all your music - sorry. For the Sansa Clip: 1. From the Main Menu, in the player -> select Settings -> Format. 2. Select Yes.
You can also format using Media Player2_bing.gif if you have unfrozen your player.1. ->start Media PlayerIf you have Media Player 10 --- Connect the Sansa player to the PC in MTP (See next step to change to MTP mode) .
1. Turn the player OFF. 2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing). 3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the player to the PC with the USB cable. once you have done that...
Click on the Sync tab.(be sure your player shows in the pull down menu2_bing.gif)Click the pencil icon on the upper right corner of the window.Click OK to start formatting. Now if you have Media Player 11---Click the Sync tab.On the left panel, look for the device. It is usually the last device listed.Right-click on the device and select FormatClick OK to format.

My ps3 wont boot past the title screen!!


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

This will fix it for sure.

PS3 freezes


There are two solution you can try, it is unlikely there is a hardware fault.
1st soloution try installing all latest updates from system updates.
if this does not work go to system settings> backup then follow the instructions to back up your data i advise using a memory stick or portable hard drive.
When this is done go to system settings and select restore ps3, follow the instructions and your data will be erased, your ps3 will be restored to its factory default with the operating re installed. When your ps3 reboots install the latest updates.
Then try your ps3 out to see if it freezes, if all is fine go to system settings> back and choose to restore a previous backup, you will then have all your saved data back. Then you can enjoy your ps3 :)
if this does not work i advise contacting sony for more advice.
