Try cleaning your game disc and check if the console is getting hot. It could be a overheating problem or dirty disc or laser lens on the drive.

Which console you got?

I keep getting error 8001050F. My games will only play for ten minutes tops, then freeze, discs wont eject properly and the system wont turn off properly, is the system garbage, any help?


One suggestion I've found when searching for that error message is to change your primary DNS to 4.2.2.1 and the secondary to 4.2.2.3. You probably would want to make that change in the router settings as well so that things will match up.

When i eject the disc and put it back in, it reads and i start it up, but about 30 seconds into start up, the game freezes. I already reset the system & recovered memory. Any suggestions?

Ps3 slim turns black when i select modern warfare 2


Hello,

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.

If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.

http://www.squidoo.com/PS3-Repair-Guide

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

My ps3 won't play ps3 games anymore. I was playing lego batman and then the game froze. so I turned off the ps3. I turned it on again and the game icon didn't show up anymore. I tried several games and...


I had the same issue. I had to send it to PSR Repairs to have it checked out. They ended up replacing the hard drive & the laser lens. According to them, both those components contributed to the freezing up & inability to turn back on. Before I sent it in, I was able to get it to turn back on by holding down both the power button & eject button simultainiously. Lie it beep once, then double beep... Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. A menu will come up giving you 6 options. Try option 3 first! you wont lose any saved items with this option. If that doesn't work, you will need to use option 6. This will delete ALL of your saved items, but there's a chance that you may not have to have your console repaired. You can retrieve trophies, games & demos from the PlayStation Store. Good luck! If I can be of further help, comment me back under this heading!

PS3 will not eject the disc nor acknowledge the game being in the console


NEVER EVER TURN YOUR SYSTEM OF WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING ONLINE AND THE GAME FREEZES!!!...

Just try to wait for 30 - 50 sec.
If that does not work than EJECT THE DISC AND THAN TURN OF THE SYSTEM, It has nothing to do with your PS3, Check your connection status and reset all your internet settings BUT NOT THE SYSTEM ITSELF.

If this still doesnt work than there's something wrong with the disc.
