My playstation starts but stalls before loading a game or freezes when playing the starting video. Sony won't fix it and said it would be £130 to replace. Any ideas?

SOURCE: disk format

1) Turn on machine
2) Open Tray
3) With tray still open hold the reset until the tray closes.
4) Tap the reset once.
if there is a format disc error, it says "Please insert a Playstation or Playstation 2 format disc." It is accompanied by a sound similar to the browser, but with a more tense noise. This is caused by a disc being so badly scratched that it completely fails to recognise the format, or if there is a problem with the laser. Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point.NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.

SOURCE: my playstation 3 started freezing now wont load games or dvds

Blow out PS3 thoughly with air and make sure it can breathe. They do not do well in entertainment centers. They overheat. Which one do you have the smaller one or the bigger HD one. The 40 gig one has a different videocard that likes to overheat and freak out a lot. (If you dont have a card reader but you have a 80 gig HD then thats the "new" small one, and its junk too. Send back to Sony if you need it fixed).

Game starts but then freezes


It's the blu-ray drive. This is the number one problem with the PS3.

You can check out some of my earlier posts on how to fix it. I'm no longer allowed to provide direct links to my PS3 blog repair site.

If you can find it I give detailed instructions and tips on how to fix it.

Best of luck!

When playing games on my PS3 the screen will occasionally start to jump, or the game will freeze. This happens mostly when I play NBA Live 09. The game loads fine then the sceen jumps constantly.
