    At boot up I also get to the smokey wave that starts to crawl across but then everything locks up and only the switch on the back turns it off. Sony offered to repair for $150.00!!!! No updates installed, no reason for problem.

Hi,

To find out which startup application is causing the issue. Please follow the steps below:

Clean Boot will help you start your computer by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs so that you can

determine whether a background program or any of the third party service is interfering with your program.

Steps to perform a Clean Boot:

1. Click Start on your Desktop
2. Type msconfig in the Start Search box and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
3. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
4. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.
5. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.
6. Click OK.
7. When you are prompted, click Restart.

PS3 Freezes when it loads certain games


The same thing hapeend to me with Infamous and Killzone 2. It wouldnt happen with MGS4. I replaced the optical lense and the harddrive on the ps3 and it did nothing. I even had a strong fan blowing air into it. Nothing worked. I took an L and sent it to Sony. But thankfully i got the money from gambling craps in Vegas so im not upset about it.

Screen freezing - Not loading


HI, this will occur when there is a serious hard disk error. you can confirm by unplugging the unit for 5 minutes. this will reset the error reporting. once the five minutes are up, simply plug the unit back up and power the unit. you should get an error code or explanation.

Contact Sony for this repair.

My ps3 wont boot past the title screen!!


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

This will fix it for sure.

The "NO VIDEO/PIXELATED VIDEO/FROZEN VIDEO" problem is all too common on the PS3. It results from overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. let it cool and resume and pray
