Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Once I am on the MW2 main page, I plug in the internet cable (which I get internet on Ipod and computer.) A black screen pops up and reads something like in order to sign in and play online need version 1.03 software update. I press ok and it goes to a different screen with a loading symbol in tol left corner. Then it freezes. I've walked away, but it stays frozen. I've tried with other games as well, but same issue.
Is it the console or internet?
Can I fix it or does it need repair?

SOURCE: ps3 frozen or blank screen
I have seen this problem a lot lately. Make sure you run a system update and update to the latest firmware which is currently 2.60 this should resolve your issue.

I am not sure if this is the actual problem but as with many PS consoles, they go through many firmware updates. By now they should be around 3 or 4. After Firmware 2 they, hopefully temporarily, dropped PS2 and PS1 compatibility. PS2 had 12 different firmwares 12 being the firmware for the PS2 slim. I am guessing that with the firmware they have right now for the PS3 that there are still bugs to work out. There are 2 main reasons that I am holding out on getting a PS3. Firstly, it is too darn expensive. Within a year or 2, with blu-ray winning the HDVD war, prices for Blu-ray players as well as associated technologies will go down, including the PS3. And Secondly, The Firmware is way too new. The current firmware, as far as I know is not currently compatible with older PS consoles and still has some problems with it's own games. This might account for your problems with updates. It would be awesome, and if you want you can pose this possibility to Sony, to have flashable firmware so you can update as new firmware is introduced. Given the things I just said, you have 2 options, Either you can continue playing realizing that the problem may be with the game update and just play without it, or you can return your ps3 and wait for newer firmware to come out. If you have the money, and are willing to do some surgery on your ps3, first try resetting the internal harddrive. I am not sure how you do that. You will have to look that up online. If that doesn't work you can try buying a new hard drive (Western Digitals Scorpio Blue 500GB is a good one, i've heard. I am currently running it in my laptop. Also has a looooooooottttt of memory space for game saves. After the PS3 software is installed you have like 440-460 GB of free space). If nothing else works, just take back the system and wait for newer firmware to come out. I recommend waiting for update 7 or 8. hopefully by then, they will have added back backwards compatibility so you can play your ps2 and psone games as well.

What a retarded solution Marcus...
This is all over the internet. It has to do with HDMI handshaking between your TV and your PS3.
Search for firmware updates on your TV.
Try a different HDMI Cable
Buy a new TV :(
or go back to component cables.
I recently received the same issue since I switch to HDMI. Never had an issue when using component.

1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
