Hi...

Unplug the AC cord..Let it set for 10 min.

Try to power on again.

If that fails, you'll need to get it repair by someone . Either Sony ( for $150) or maybe someone listed on the web

My sony Ereader froze. how do i unfreeze it?


Try holding the power switch down for 30 seconds and see if it shuts down. Hopefully after that it will just turn on again. If not, try leaving it until the battery runs down. Recharge and then start it up again.

Best of luck

I was online gaming with playstation 3 and all of a sudden, the game crashed and froze so long, i switched the power off. after that i turned the computer back on and now the play station will not read any...


Try switching the power off again, if it keeps doing the same thing then call customer support, depending on how old is your PS3 they'll just fix the optical drive at no charge. If your PS3 is really old then you can try changing your optical drive yourself, first buying one on ebay depending the model you have and then go to youtube and they have videos on how to do it yourself. It won't cost you more than $80 to buy an optical drive.

I was playing grand theft auto 4 when the game suddlenly froze. There was no choice but to switch the system off. Now when I try to start it up the power light quickly switches from green to red and then...


Hi,
Hopefully this will help solve your problem:
1. Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button;
2. Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button;
3. The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server.
4. During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`).
These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console.
Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595

Good Luck!

I was playing a game and all of a sudden the ps3 froze up


that is just glitch that almost any game or any game console will do occassionally but rarely its nothing to worry about unless it does it more than once in the same spot then it is probably the game disc is scratched or the game itself has a glitch there

I press the power button, and it lights up and I


ok so in this situation you need to call sony. its broken, but there have been reports of people "roughing up" their ps3's to get them to work, try unplugging everything, and flipping the power switch to off, on your ps3, then plugging it all back in and turn the witch on, they say after about the 4th to 5th try you can get it to boot up, my suggestion is to never turn it off after that, but dont hold me accountable for whatever happens. this is what ive read on the internet
