You probably need to update your firmware. To do so, you'll need an appropriate storage device (usb mass storage device, memory stick, etc.).
Updating your firmware will most likely fix this problem.
The process of updating your firmware without going online is available on the playstation site, here:

http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/SystemUpdates/PS3/PC_Update.html

I cannot be sure that this is your problem because there is no firmware version 1.17 so you may be referring to an update to a game.

If this is the case, you should try uninstalling the game from your hard drive, re-installing or downloading it, and then running it to update it if necessary.

If you are still having problems, it may be your router. Some cable companies have built in firewalls in their router that prevent access to certain ports on the internet and can cause other devices to malfunction.

Hope this helps!

When i try to play online on fifa 11, it freezes and i cant go back. then i have to switch the PS3 off. it keeps happening and i can't play online now


This problem has nothing to do with your PS3!! Its Fifa 11 which is very full of glitches. This freezing problem is a known bug and Fifa or EA doesnt seem to care about it. if you search online you'll see multiple people with similar complaints on EA forums and few or no replies from EA. They havent come up with a fix yet. all you can do is wait for an update (ie. Fifa 12)

Sounds like your System has become corrupted.

Have you already tried the System Restore function?

Ps3 freezes at startup screen/ green red dots/lines,


Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.

It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.

Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.

You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.

Hope this helps??

I have recently purchased a ps3, about 2/3 weeks ago, with it i brought call of duty 4. I brought the ps3 mainly for online gaming and cod4 works perfectly. I then purchased fifa 08 and tried to play...


The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.

Same problem here. You have to wait till Rockstar comes out with a patch for the game.

Browser freezing and no memory


It sounds like you have an early version of the system software on your PS3. There have been a number of updates to address bugs created by the earlier versions of the software. You can get the latest update here: http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3/About/SystemUpdate

Try loading that onto your PS3, and see if it solves the problem.
