It freezes during a game when you die or load a new level


Try cleaning the disc and then cleaning the blu-ray laser using a lens cleaner. What is most likely happening is that the disc cannot be read resulting in your Playstation crashing.

My game keeps freezing up, what is the problem and can it be fixed?


Hi. There are many possibilities why PS3 keeps freezing up to a certain point of time. First is, this could be a game disc issue. Ifthis happened to a certain game disc only then probably you might have a purchased a bad game disc. Second is, lens problem. might be the lens is getting hard time reading the disc and needs replacement.

looks like the disc drive driver issue ... not recognizing the disc drive... remember that the playstation is a computer. When troubleshooting the Sony treat it as a computer. Might need to replace the disc drive.

FREEZING


similar things have happened on PS2s, the laser that reads DVD discs might have come unaligned. I would suggest taking it back if it's still under warranty.

You can attempt to fix it, but it's better left up to a professional

PS3 having trouble reading game discs!!!


hey guys. the problem is that the blue ray reader is some how broken and it won't work. mine kept freezing during games like after 3 mins. and it wouldnt read any more discs for that day. you need to change the blue ray reader and that costs about 175$. thats alot of money and its probably not worth it.

Playstation2 disc error


I can't be for sure, but I believe it's just the lens. What happens is when you put scratched discs into the system, the lens "self-destructs" itself attempting to read the scratches. Hope this helps!
