Try reseting the system. If that doesnt fix the problem than call Sony and ask tech support. I had the same problem and they walked me through how to fix it.

You should do a quick reformat by going to your settings on the PS3, Don't do the big reformat that takes hours, just do the quick one. If that doesn't work then you might need to do the big reformat of the HDD.

Hope I helped

HI, backup your games. If you're a playstation plus member you can back them up online. Otherwise, insert a usb drive, go across to "game" then up or down to "Saved data utility (ps3)". Then select the save you want to backup by pressing triangle. Select copy, choose your usb drive (or usb key) as the destination.
After you have backed up all the saves you want, go across to settings, then to system settings. then select "Restore default settings." Let it have its process, and turn off the PS3 then back on again.
You may need to set up your network settings again.
If it still doesn't work, follow steps above but select "Restore PS3 system" instead. This is when having the backed up game saves is needed as you will have to copy them back from the usb drive (or from online via playstaiton plus) onto your restored ps3.

Also, try using Open DNS as your DNS settings. It might work. Or let the ps3 find them automatically.

Go into the network settings and change the DNS server addresses to OpenDNS' server addresses 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

When i am using my PS3 i can put a game in whilst off of the PSN and it will work however as soon as i sign into the PSN to go on a game online or perfomr the updates it crashes out and goes to a blank...


You can try resetting all your network settings on the system itself including your PSN sign in info. After clearing it all out and resetting the settings you should be able to relink your PSN account to the system and sign in. There could be some corrupt cache or update files in the system as well so you may have to do a system restore to defaults if the first method is a fail.
Good Luck and Happy Gaming!

Back up your system using the backup utility ( ONLY if you have saved games, pics, video, etc. that you wanna keep)

Go to SETTINGS, SYSTEM SETTINGS, RESTORE PS3

That's the first thing you should try.

Let me know what happens.

Starting up Problems


I found it 2 min. ago. Ok here: while your ps3 is on hold the power button on the ps3 for you will hear one beep, keep holding it then when you hear the second beep take your finger off. Your ps3 should turn off. Now push the power button while holding your finger on it again, you will hear two single beeps, then a double beep, let your finger ago and a screen should appear with six options. Chose something like reset(or restore) file data or something like that and click yes, this wont do anything to your game/music/movie/etc. files but now your ps3 shall work.

Discs wont read on ps3.


Question: does it play blueray movies? Mine did this, but would still play movies. I found a "Corrupted Data" file in my Games/data folder, and ended up doing a quick restore, under ths System menu. I now have no problems in this area...games start properly every time. You will lose all your saves and any dowloaded content, so back up if you can.
