Dear, before you get in touch with Sony technical support you may want to try to use the PS3 recovery options. The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this: Make sure the PS3 is turned off Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep, just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try) It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable, Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu. Be aware that you may lose all of your previously saved data (NOT trophies, they're stored online so don't worry).
Thank you for using Fixya and for rating my solution if you find it helpful. Peter_Rei

PS3 keeps signing out. Won't let me play online. Still can use browser.


Does this happen all the time or just for today? If it's just for today and maybe a few times in the past, like all of us, then you will need to be patient and keep signing in or reset your modem to allow a new fresher connection. If you get signed out, press the PS button in the middle of the controller and sign back in swiftly and it should reconnect.

Reset your modem and run a test again:

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and choose the appropriate settings. (What's highlighted is going to be the best option, continue to hit the right button on the analog to go through the stages.)

My new PS3 Call of Duty black Ops game is freezing when I try to play online. I cannot get it to load at all.


I've read that deleting the files for the game and/or signing out of PSN helps (I haven't tried either, but I can't get past the title screen and cutscenes without my PS3 freezing)

My PS3 wont start games when im signed in on PSN


HI I HAD THAT PROBLEM SO I ASKED THE EXPERT..HE SOLVED MY PROBLEM! BASICALLY THERE A CORRUPTED DATA ON YOUR COMPUTER WHICH NEEDS FIXING.
QUICK STEPS: PLEASE NOTE YOU MAY LOSE YOUR SAVED DATA SO BEST TO BACK UP SYSTEM TO A USB FIRST.
ONCE YOU BACKED UP YOUR SYSTEM FOLLOW THIS STEPS ONLY IF YOUR SURE. THIS WORKED FOR ME, IT WORKS 90% OF THE TIME SO I WAS TOLD BY THE EXPERT. REALLY DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH DATA HAS BEEN CORRUPTED.
QUICK STEP:
  • TURN PS3 TO STANDBY BY PRESSING THE BUTTON THATS ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON,YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5SECONDS LATER, THEN THE THIRD BEEP. HOLD BUTTON DOWN UNTIL THE LIGHT TURNS RED THEN MOVE FINGER.
  • NOW SWITCH ON PS3 HOLDING POWER BUTTON ON THE CONSOLE..HOLD THE BUTTON DOWN YOU WILL HEAR FIRST BEEP THEN ANOTHER BEEP 5 SECS LATER, THEN TWO BEEPS TOGETHER.LET GO OF BUTTON WHEN YOU HEAR TWO BEEPS.
  • IT SHOULD SAY SOMETHING ABOUT CORRUPT DATA. AGREE TO IT. SOON YOU SHOULD HAVE A 6 OPTION MENU COME UP.
  • PRESS NUMBER 3...RESTORE SYSTEM FILES
  • IT SHOULD THEN RESTART COMPUTER.
  • NOW TRY PLAYING YOUR GAME ONLINE.
  • ITS MEANT TO WORK AS IT DID FOR ME.
IF IT DOESNT WORK THAT MEANS THERES ANOTHER PROBLEM. I WOULD ADVICE YOU TO ASK THE EXPERT. THEY TELL YOU STEP BY STEP, THEY FIXED MINE IN HALF HOUR. ITS WORTH EVERY PENNY.IF THEY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM THAT IS! HOPE THIS HELPED YOU GUYS...GOODLUCK!

I can play offline but evertime im playing and hit the ps button my ps3 freezes and i have to turn it off and back on. if im already signed in to psn and try and load a game while signed in it freezes


it sounds like your internet connection is lagging very badly if it freezes on hitting the home button if you can try to move your ps3 closer to your network wireless router.
