Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

My PS3 won't play games

I have a PS3 that gets occassional use. I left the game on for a about 24 hours accidently. After shutting it off and trying to play it again a few days later, the system powers up and offers the start up menu but it will not recgonize any of my games.

Did I burn something out by leaving on so long? Can it be fixed, relatively cheaply?

If have droped it that will happen but i leave mine on for longer periods of time
try to go to your system setting and restore it but you can always check and see if there is a new system update for your system and that might work also

Can't get game to play on ps3


You might have overheated the console. Give it a while to cool down and try after that.

Loss Of Sond When PS3 Gets Warm


probably the PS3 is overused, that's why it's warm. Shut it off when gets warm, or the least, after 4 - 5 hours of game play. That should help cool down the machines !

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.


I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.

My PS3 shuts down only on PS3 games


The first thing I would do is a System Update!!!!!! This happened to me playing Army of Two until I Updated it. With games and Some Blu-Rays (Iron Man I had the same problem) require updates to play and function properly! Just hook up to your Network (Router or Modem) Create a Playstaion store account (To the Right on the PS3 Crossbar) Then go to the 2nd to left on the Crossbar, Then all the way up. Grab the update and you should be Good! This happened Twice to me, So now I always update and No probs! Good Luck!

PS3 won´t read a game worked perfectly 2 hours ago


3 Options that you should check


If you did leave the PS3 on it is possible that it did this while the console idled

During the period this game was in the console did you accidently bump/knock over you PS3? If so it would not suprise me if the game got scratched from this

Is your PS3 well ventilated? An arising issue with these consoles is overheating is becoming a factor in both damaging hardware and games


Hope my comment was of some assistance ;)

PS3 game stopped playing, screen went blank


hay if you fell it getting hot fast it's the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety precaution. so there for it will keep freezing of shouting down.
