I cannot load and play my games on this 7inch digiland tablet sometimes they will load but cut off soon after I start playing then tablet says every thing else has stopped working can u please help me

generally, with it devices, when things stall, stutter or shutdown there turns out to be a problem with plugins . It might be that the unit does not meet the minimum system requirements for those games. Check this first then update all your plugins, see if that makes a difference. If not come back to Fixya and include the testing you have carried out.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.

Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.

When onlinr playing a game it stalls during a game

this might just be that your using to many components online at the same time try shutting down anything else online or downloading of any sort and see if the issue continues, if your getting this wired and wireless it just sounds like you do not have the bandwidth to handle it all. If im wrong sorry. You could also try powering down router or even reseting it. and the modem maybe its just having issues with this unit. Sometimes they are finicky....

Console constantly turns off during play

This can be caused from overheating. Look if the rear fan works. If not try and call the local Nintendo Service Center.
