Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS3 freezes up...

I was playing Resistance 2 one night when the game froze up. Now the system wont seem to start up properly more than once a day, and freezes up shortly after being turned on. My PS3 is a 60 GB version which I bought off Ebay. I already had to deal with the blue-ray drive failure that's oh so common with this model, so I didn't think I'd be having problems with that again. I have already opened the console, so repairs through Sony are out of the question, but as a result I am confident in my ability to open up the PS3 and replace any part that may be malfunctioning if I can find one for purchase online. Is there anything I can do to fix this or do I need to send it to the guys who fixed it before and cash in on their warranty?

    Would you know if you're keeping up to date with your system updates? Currently the update version is at 3.10v It is imperative that you update constantly to prevent freeze ups & lock ups. Sony is aware of this problem but ultimately it's the gamers responsibility to update every week.

If you already checked everything out then your best bet is to send it to the ones with the warranty because if you start fumbling with it you might just break off something or damage something either way leave it to the pros..

It is because It is because fat partitions dont suupport manupulation of files bigger than 4 gb. Convert it to ntfs and it will work. And you might wonder that it worked for 15 min. ISo when you play a game lots of cache is generated and size of game is nearly doubled so this causes problem on a fat partition. And on

The system froze while playing a game, and now


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Game Saints Row 2 keeps freezing at certain points in the game


maybe you should try different games? see if those different games freeze, if so, then it might be your blu-ray player in your ps3, or your ps3 might be overheating. my games froze at certain points because my ps3 was overheating, just try a few different games

Ps3 freezes whenever i turn it on


i have the same problem dude. I played my PS3 pretty regularly for about 6 months, then one day it started freezing. I have been searching for a solution ever since, but all Ive been able to find out is that i can send it to Sony, with $150, and they will fix it and give me a ninety day warranty. But other than that i can't help you. If you found a better way, let me know please.
