Re: Why did this happen?

Gooood afternoon,
this problem could be caused by a few things.
The two that come to mind would be.
1. Is your ps3 overheated? have you been plaing it for a long period of time?
2.Is the power plug tampered with? Did you accidentally bump it?
Have any more information, just ask me.
Hope this help you, and happy gaming.

Are you using the older playstation 3 the fat series one??? had this happen to me when I bought red dead redemption and played it on my old ps3 the fat version, and it always froze and went to the point of unplugging to get it running again. Turns out the cd drive and hard drive died a few weeks later. leading me to buy a new ps3 which is what sounds like is happening to you what game do you notice it happening with the most ?

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

From the above select option "Rebuild Database". After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.

Thank you

I was playing call of duty my ps3 turned off after that if i turn it on it freezes up and turns off. i tried reseting it through the beep double beep menu but it wont stay on long enough to finish, wtf

Through a connection in the internet
( or faulty parts whatever sony wants to tell you) playing that game ruined your Ps3 sometimes it can even be a game that you have been playing for months weeks even and something will just set it off your best bet is to find a repairman or to send it to sony and PRAY you still have a warranty (this happened to me only but 2 days ago)
