Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

Ps3 won't let me play online but it let's me sign


Hi, the reason you are experiencing this issue is because the Playstation Network is still not up and running in all areas. It is only working in some. You best bet is to just stop trying to sign in to get on-line and play your games normally off-line until the issue is resolved. They will most likely release an update when it is time for it to be up and running in your area.

I hope this helps!

This is on my sony ps3.every time i try to go online for a game it freezes. i can log in online before i start the game and the when i try to load the game it freezes. if i load the game first and then try...


Try playing a game not online.

If it freezes while you ARE NOT online:

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

If you do, you must disassemble your drive and take out the laser to see exactly which laser you will need to purchase.

If you can play your games OFFLINE just fine, then you may have a hard drive problem. You will need to try the above and then repost with your new findings.

It sounds like you have gotten some corrupted data on your hard drive or there is something wrong with your drive. The link below will take you through resetting the drive. Note in your case since the PS3 does boot to the PS3 menu I would recommend backing up any save games that you want to keep before you format the drive.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

PS3 freezing during multiple games


Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.

Ps3 like freezing


If the disc/laser lens are dirty it will cause the games to freeze, or if the system doesn't have proper ventilation it will overheat.
