Hi i get an error code of 8001050f when i go to play my video games can you tell me how to fix it so i can play my games


go to the play stations web site to find out what the code means.

if your ps3 has a message of trophy registration error sony will say you need to turn in your ps3 for service this is not true i fixed mine by saving my game data on a thumbstick then deleted the game save data shut off my ps3 then turned the main power (the switch in the back) off for a few minutes to allow the power to dissipate. Then i restarted the ps3 copied my game save data back and my COD modern warfare 2 played like a champ!
i did lose all of my trophies but the game saved data allowed for 12 percent of them to come back apon completing one special op mission.

How do you set up playstation 3 to play playstation 2 games


One Surefire WayThe only way how to play PS2 games on PS3 is to have the correct version of the console. Either your Playstation 3 can play PS and PS2 games or it can’t, and there’s not much to do about it. Most of the PS3 models simply cannot play older titles as they lack the necessary hardware and firmware. However, a few models do have backwards compatibility. The 20 Gb, 60 Gb, and original 80 Gb models all have backwards compatibility, either through hardware or software emulation. The other models lack backwards compatibility, so even knowing how to play PS2 games on PS3 won’t help you out much here.
However, if you do have the correct console model, then there isn’t much to know for learning how to play PS2 games on PS3. Simply insert the game CD or DVD (many original Playstation games are also supported thankfully), and the game will start up. Sometimes, it will tell you that you can’t play the game, but simply hook your PS3 up via wireless or ethernet connection and update the firmware (which also provides improved compatibility with newer versions of Blu-ray discs). Often, this will fix the problems, but not all PS and PS2 games are supported (although most are).
There you have it. Learning how to play PS2 games on PS3 is easy, but if you just randomly picked a Playstation 3 model out at your local retailer, you might have a model lacking in backwards compatibility. One reason they didn’t include such compatibility with all models is an issue of cost, as it saved Sony some money to not include such a feature on all of the models. When they first started selling PS3s for $400, they were losing several hundred dollars (although they are at least breaking even now). Unfortunately, both the new 80 Gb and 160 Gb PS3 models are lacking in such compatibility, so you’ll need to find older models to support your older games.

Please rate my solutions! =)

PS3 (250GB version - only 4 weeks old) - Games play fine...All of a sudden theres no sound at all - Ive tried a music CD this plays without sound as well. Checked HDMI cable. WHAT IS WRONG?


try a hard reset press and hold the power button for 5 seconds this will reset it too factory (only the settings you wont lose game save data) see if that helps

I cant save sim city 2000 on my ps3


Make room free on your ps3's harddisk, this is where al data on your ps3 is stored.
Some games install alot game data, resulting in a harddisk thats is full.
Remove game data from games that you're not planning to play any more soon.

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them


In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

Ps3 freezing,not reading new discs


Hi!

First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or your ps3, following that I would say you put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works. If it doesn't, get a USB memory stick and save all your important data. After that, reset your system settings.

You can do that by:

Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings

After that try it and if it doesn't work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system.

You can do that by:

Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.

It should be noted that all of your stuff will be deleted, so I hope you saved all of your game saves on that usb flash disk.

If it doesnt work then do the following:

call sony:

SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST
Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST


Have fun!

*Your vote is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Ps3 wont play ps2


you need to check how many gigabytes you have left in memory because every ps2 game you use has to make its own folder in the ps3 which each one uses alot of the memory so if you play alot of differnt games and are in the middle of saved games for ex. final fantasy they use lot of memory so check that and a easy way is to delete some of your non used things like pictures or demos you downloaded from th internet and things like those
