Ps3 locking up

Hey the other day i tried to play Battlefield bad company it loaded up fine then after 10 to 20 sec it just locked up and i cant turn the power off with the controller and i tried the power button on the front but it beeped like it was going to shut down so i waited a minute still noting i did noticed a blue flashing light by the power button not sure what that means well anyway i had to use the switch in the back to shut it off so i figured it might be the game well it did the same on the other games freezes after 15-20 sec i did play a dvd watched it for 2hrs no problem also cant be overheating i can play burnout paradise from the hardrive for hrs without a problem
anyone have any idea what might be going on with my ps3

Yes, this must be a problem with your blu-ray reader . did you try to run another bluray disc game ?

you should try:

  • restoring system settings
  • reinstalling possible game files.
  • look for possible game updates
  • reinstalling sony firmware (re-update via USB)
if nothing of this works, you should take the system to a support centre for verify possible hardware damage .

Battlefield 3


Running the new Battlefield 3 game doesn't require any of the earlier versions, so your problem would likely lay elsewhere. Be sure you have a connection to the internet, and try running the game again. It may need to install the patch software fresh again.

Cant connect to ea servers mercs2 ps3 I am on psn signed in it says cant connect to ea servers


I've just fixed this problem...
We bought a 2nd ps3 with mercs2 yesterday and had the same problem on the new system, even when using the other copy of mercs2 from my original ps3.
This 100% worked for me;
I loaded battlefield, bad company on the new system and accepted EA's online terms.
Then i started a quick game multiplayer match (don't be surprised if it doesn't connect 1st time as that occasionally happens anyway).
Then i quit bad company, banged in mercs2 and "jus like that" the freeze is gone and you can play online.
I have also read that this works with army of two also but i can't confirm that.
Have fun!!!

Graphics get squarish


Sounds like your GPU is cooked. The Graphics Processing Unit on the PS3 has started tohave issues with overheating. If your PS3 is still under warranty, go to http:www.us.playstation.com and go to the service link. There you will find the info you need to have your unitfixed. I have had to have mine serviced twice. From the day I sent it to them, it was less than ten days when they returned it. Be sure to take screenshots of the graphics problems you are having. If you do not, chances are all they will do is clean the unit, nd add cooling grease to the GPU and cell broadband engine This will help for a few days. But if the GPU is cooked, it will revert to the graphic "glitches" in a few days after service. Heat is the number one enemy of all electronics. Be sure and turn your PS3 off when not in use. Even if it is in "pause" mode, or just on the dashboard it is still causing wear and tear n the unit. Some games will still work fine with a bad GPU. But graphics intense games like Bad Company that run between 60-120fps cause alot of stress on the gpu. Good luck, and Happy Gaming!
