Problem with PS3 system

My PS3 has been running very slowly lately. For the past 3 days there have been times it has frozen completely and i have been left with no choice but to turn it off at the wall. I used it to watch a blu ray film last night and turned it off properly when the film finished but this morning when i put it on it said that it had not been turned off properly and then froze completely. Again i had to turn it off at the wall

Why is facebook not working properly on my PS3 system when it used to weeks ago ?


I'll tell you why. As I have stated several times, the PS3 is weak as a computer, at best. It is not designed to be updated like regular PC's. FaceBook runs flash objects, and when new flash players are required to view these objects, the PS3 can't keep up! Simply because Sony will not let you update the Flash player on the PS3. Sometimes it works, most of the time, it don't. I recomend never using a PS3 for any website you might visit, including Face Book.

THIS IS THE THIRD SYSTUM IN THE PAST 30 DAYS I KEEP RETURNING THEM AND GETTING THEM REPLACED THANK GOD FOR THE 30 DAYS... THE FIRST ONE LOCKED UP AND WHAT EVER DISC I TRYED JUST FROZE AFTER ONLY 2 WEEKS...


Hang in their friend - fate has been very unkind to you lately, but the PS3 is really a great system - I've had mine for a few years now with no trouble. Also, from a pure probability standpoint, the XBox 360 has even higher rates of broken hardware - Microsoft has spent billions of dollars combating the red ring of death. Especially after investing so much money in games, I would stick it out with Sony on this one. Sorry your luck has been so terrible!

My ps3 has been freezing up lately, what do i do


Dear guerrero_flo,

Have you updated your PS3 firmware? Keeping your PS3 up-to-date is a good way to keep it in shape.

Also, you should check on the hard drive health. You can remove the SATA hard drive from your PS3, connect it to a SATA to USB connector, and run a health checking program such as HDTune Pro.

If the hard drive is fine, your PS3 (the older models, anyways) could be slowly dying. All hardware have a "bathtub curve", which determines when it breaks down. Video game consoles, especially younger models of them, tend to die slowly after 4-5 years.

Good luck,
Ken

Download completed then recieved warning that I would not be able to use 'other OS' if accepted. system is frozen. turn offed and restarted still frozen


The best thing to do in this situation is to turn it off and wait for a couple of minutes and then turn it back on. If the problem persists then you have to do a reset of the system by doing the following.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on with the switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
This is the only method you can be sure would work if you are not to take it to a repairer but beware that you may lose all your data if you did not make a back-up before the reset.

HI,
when the system is powered on hold the power button down until you hear it beep twice, I am unsure if this is what you were talking about or not but it should reset the system to factory settings


If anything you tried didn't work then contact Sony
