Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

3 Answers

So my ps3 freezes all the time. i cleaned it, freed up the all saved stuff, and taken really good care of it. i've never cracked the seal or tampered with it. it freezes the most when i play oblivion, of fallout type games. i don't leave it on long enough to overheat, and it freezes in like 10 mins of game play.  so what do i do now?

If this happens for more than one game, upgrade the software to 3.01 since 3.0 firmware had some issues.
if this happens only in one or few games, makesure that the disk is not scratched...
try upgrading to 3.01 and see if that works.
if this does not work, try calling sony for repair

I let it freeze


the whole washer :)

sorry but the ice can make large damage in stuff like that. Disasseble it and carefully open your eyes :) look for cracks... It may be a sealing, or a whole pump may be broken...

Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

My PS3 won't read any of my games or dvds... please, what can I do?


usually when I'm faced with an optical based drive that wont read discs, I UNPLUG IT FROM THE MAINS, then I carefully open the device, locating the drive, being very careful not to touch any part of circuit boards other than the edges. I then open the drive carefully. VERY gently, using A MAGNIFYING GLASS, GOOD LIGHT, the best glasses cleaning fluid I have and an earbud I have made pointy, I clean the laser lens. only cleaning enough to take off the dust and smears visible on the lens. then I use A DIFFERENT pointed earbud to CAREFULLY dry and desmear the lens. DO NOT PUSH SO HARD AS TO BEND THE LENS' SUSPENSION SYSTEM. Doing this I have had approximately 98% success rate, including more than one ps2. I have not as yet tried it with bluray but when it happens... I aint a-feared,
You will need to go get the appropriate special screwdrivers from Radio Shack (or other)to open your PS3. Of course, make sure your PS3 is out of warranty because obviously you will need to open your PS3 console consequently voiding your warrantee. Above all BE CAREFUL keeping track of where everything goes to put it back together (on really complex stuff I use a 10Megapixel digital camera taking many closeup pics for reference).
BTW, do not use foggers in the same room as optical drives as they deposit a film of grunge on discs and lenses that looks like smoke. several I have cleaned have been sullied by foggers

Tamper monitor pop-up. How do I stop it?


An incomplete Norton installation activity (like a software for online security for kids) could have taken place. I suggest to uninstall this completely, clean it up and reboot. That should take care of it.

Good luck!

Anit freeze is leaking on the passenger side of the floor, both the dodge caravan 2000 and the gmc truck 1997 are now doing it, possible tampered with but not sure how... cannot find fix it manuals online...


Is this inside the vehicles or outside?  From your problem I take it that it is on the inside of the cars.  This can only be by a hole in your heater-core and is a big job usually as half the dash may have to be taken out to replace.
If you don't need a heater in the car you can take the two hoses from the firewall and join them together to eliminate the heater core. This is a temporary fix only and may get you going.
I doubt it that anyone got into your car and poked a hole in your heater core.  You are probably not using a good coolant level or is old and your engine is overheating.
A bad water pump will leak at the bottom - there is a hole there and if it's leaking have it replaced - is a sign it's going bad.
Don't leave anti-freeze (Glycol) Coolant on ground as animals find it sweet and will drink it to their demise.
Good luck - hope this help.
Always shut your vehicle off before it nears the redline (coolant) or the heads may (will) warp and or crack. Always use new head-bolts when replacing a head-gasket, and tap the head-bolt holes with a tap and die set, cleaning the holes really well.
Always blow the old head-gasket material out of your heater core when replacing a blown head-gasket.
MX6 and MX3 V6 engines have valves that if you plane the head too much will make the timing belt too loose - you may have to use a head-saver to insure specs.
Good luck.
Hope this helps.
Remember, if you have a leak of anti-freeze then you are getting air into the system which will make the car overheat, but that's for another day.

Games will not load ps3


here is one of the best answers that I ran across in the past about said issue.

this is what i would do :
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or ur ps3, following that i would say u put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works, if it doesn't, then u are in serious trouble ( not really!). Get a USB Memory Stick( u know one of those little things u plug in a computer and can save all of ur stuff in) save ur important stuff. and then after that reset ur system settings, u can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
after that try it and if it doesnt work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system, u can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
it should be noted that all of ur stuff will be deleted, so i hope u saved all of ur game saves on that usb flash stcik thing.
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
and tell them about ur problem, they will tell u to restore system settings or restore ps3 system, and thats what i told u, if it doesnt work, they will ask for ur adresss ( i hope u live in North America) and will ask u ur email, phone number and all that. After that they will send u a box( takes around 4-5 business days for the box to get to ur house, but it really matters where u live) and u put ur ps3 in that box, send it back, and then they will fix it, if they cant they will either send u a refurbished ps3 which is someone elses ps3 but dont worry its as good as brand new or if not, they will send u a new ps3. which will take sbout 4-5 business days, and again depends on where u live!

Leaking ploy silicon


Yes and that stuff is poisionous. So be careful, not to get on hands, if do clean really good, it's antifreeze like you put in a car. It's called CRT coolant, and it keeps the bulbs cool in your set. Yes it's repairable, If you get it on the circuit board it will damage your tv. You must clean completely if dropped on PCB. You can purchase at places like MCMelectronics, bluestar-online, tritronics etc. While leaking it must be a bad seal need replacing or screw loose.
