Re: ps3

You may need to blow out the fans in the back with some canned air. Make sure the PS3 is not sitting on a surface prone to lint (like carpet).

If this doesn't work, you may need to reset the software through the Settings menu.

Since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot

Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge

or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only

Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

Cant acess ps3 Xbar menu,still plays games

it sounds like you haven't set the display settings correctly. turn off your ps3 and try using the red,white,yellow cables (make sure everything is plugged in correctly). if you get a signal, then change the display settings to whatever connection you will use.

hope that helps
