When i load portal 2 on ps3 the screens flickers and a moving yellow triangle with a red exclamation mark appears and the game does not work. I have exchanged disks and it still does not work. All other...


I think I found the problem. I started getting this problem after I moved to uk. If you shutdown you ps3 then unplug the network cable. Start your ps3 while the cable is still unplug. You'll be able to play the game once again. Steam sucks they region lock the game via steam I'm guessing. You cannot play portal 2 US version while being in UK.

Video is fine; audio will not play. All cables


Disconnect the cable from the ps3, the one that connects the ps3 and the monitor, for a few seconds, then reconnect it. You do this while video is playing or when you play games.

I was playing my ps3 online but when I changed the game I got a message IP address failed


This is a network connectivity problem so to resolve this check the network connection of your PS3 to your network whether its connected with a CAT5 cable or via wireless...make sure the network connection is still good and also restart your PS3 to establish the connection again....

When playing a game connected to the internet the game will play for a few minutes and then goes completely black


1)is your ps3 overheating?
2) is anyone else using the network your conected to?
3) are all your network cables conected and un-frayed,cut,pinched
4)dose your router go into a colisian state when you get the black screen?
5) dose it only happen in this online game or all online games
6)dose it happen every time you play this game or only some times?
6)are you trying to hack the game?
what port forwarding do you have configured for the conection to your ps3?
if none learn how to configure it to limit redundant broadcast that may be causing this problem.
try turning unplugging all systems from your router except the ps3

if you are conected directly to a broadband conection you might want to get a router so you can filter the trafic that reaches your ps3
hackers/cheaters are malicious and will stop at nothing to get the thrill of winning ,first learn how to do it ,then you can know how to stop it from being done to you ,or at least level the playing field at the cost of self respect

When playing ps3 game live i get kicked off the games what is going on


Are you running the live game play through the internal WiFi card or a wired Ethernet cable? If you can try hooking up an Ethernet cable and it solves the problem, you are getting interference from something and you'll have to move the PS3 closer to your router or just try to keep it on the Ethernet cable for online play. That's what I use because it is much more reliable and much faster than WiFi.

If you are running with an Ethernet cable and you are still having problems, the problem may not be with your PS3 but with your router or internet connection. Try moving the cable to another outlet on the router. Check your network settings on the PS3 amd try to set up the network to automatically detect settings.

Depending on the game, you may be kicked off by other users in the game. I've had that happen a couple times because everyone's a critic.

I hope this helps. Good luck and have fun online! Don't forget to rate! Thank you!

Ethernet cable


Recommendation:

Get a Router in order for both laptop and PS3 to be online at the same time.

Ps3 wont work


Try to do a reset off all the settings to the default.
Re enter your network information and try again.
As far as reading games, most likely is the bluray diode that went out.
If it's still under warranty send it to Sony.

PS3 problem


I really wish I had a concrete answer for you. It may just be a coincedence that it happens only when you play that game. I have had that problem before myself, but it would happen with different games at different times of the day. As you know most of the popular games like MGS4 and COD4 are made and supported by diffent companies. This also means that the servers are in different locations and have a varied amount of people on each server. MGS4 is a newer game and I also had problems with the online play with that game as many people have.

As for a soultion. Some games require a stronger signal strength then others due to the amount of MB being transfered. I would try to use a shorter Ethernet cable if using a wired connection, or moving closer to your WiFi router if using WiFi, and completely resetting the network configuration. I know thats a pian, but if it works, it will be worth it! I really hope this helps you!! Good luck.
