Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

PS3 Games keep sticking in gameplay.

A few weeks ago in the middle of playing Resistance 2, I first noticed the problem. I had reached a point in the game where it was saving, and simultaneously I was killed. After that, the game wouldn't load.

Subsequently after that, all games we have been playing on the PS3-system have been "sticking" in after a while of playing.
The screen won't go black, rather the character will just stick in midair, or keep running in one direction. While this happens, a clicking noise can be heard from the disc reader.

I have tried restoring the system.
I have also tried the options in the recovery meny.
One thing I have noticed is that even though I have performed a full system restore, it keeps the new firmware, is it supposed to do that?

Do you know of any way of solving this problem?

Thank you

Offhand, have you tried another souce for the video or connecting the ps3 another way to the television?

Is your ps3 covered by warranty, this seems like a possible hardware problem. But first have you tried updating your ps3 internal software to the latest available?

Please check these things first and let mek now.

SOURCE: how to load games on memory stick psp 2000 firmware version 4.01

You can't download games unless you have custom firmware some custom firmware have viruses and i don't reccomend you trying to get games because they might crash your computer and it's hard to put games on it because most of the time it says corrupted data

I cannot get Resistance 2 to load on my ps3, I have tried 2 copies and niether of them work. However they work on my sons which is in the same house.

It's likely that the Playstation models are different in the fact that versions were backwards compatible. Meaning that early PS3 models were able to play PS2 games.
BUT that was phased out and now all currently manufactured PS3 models do not play PS2 games.
More detailed info from a Yahoo answers post "The 80GB PS3 is not capable of playing PS2 games. There is one model (the one with the chrome trim) that can play a PS2 emulator, but never an actual disc. The only two made that can play PS2 games are the out of production 20GB and 60GB"
Alternatively, available in the PS store are PS2 games that have been remastered to play on PS3 through download and others like the God of War series and now ICO have been made available to purchase in disc form.
Hope this helps...

My PS3 doesn't read disks that i insert!

It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

In your caseme, best bet might be to get the whole drive.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

1st 80Gb ps3 model gets hot really fast..

Make sure that your not placing your system on any sort of carpet or rug this will cause the system to overheat. Also check the fan on the back of the system and make sure that the fan is clean and not full of dust and other sorts of stuff. If this does not stop then i would go buy a cooling fan for it just to make sure it dont fry the motherboard!!

Ps3 will not play games

the eye of the ps3(the thing that reads the games and dvds) may be scratched or damaged slightly to the point where it only occasionally wont read your games so you should call customer service at sony and run this question over with them and tell them about what i said.

Common issue with Playstation 3 is the lens.
Try using a CD Lens cleaner.

The problem with that is the PS3 that you bought is tuned for Japanese dvds and games, You may have to get your PS3 modded to support the French games. However I am unaware of the legality of having your PS3 modded.
Good Luck
