SOURCE: PS3 freeze

hey guys i fixed this...

its over heatings the CPU and GPU

you need to disassemble it... http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_disassembly_tutorial.htm

then you need to replace the thermal compound with artic silver 5 as the stuff sony has put on is very dry and cracked, i have done this 4 7 of my mates PS3'S and they all work fine.

only do this if its out of warrently, if you removin the sticker on it, it shines through void

Check your memory status maybe if you delete some old game saves you could have room for the download if that dosent work i suggest you call that number.

SOURCE: my ps3 not working

Sony used a bad batch of lasers on earlier models of ps3. Mostly 40 and 60 gig but like any other electrical component it has the chance of taking a s**t. Sony will replace or repair your system if the warranty sticker is still on the console, if now open the BD and replace the laser with a new laser (not refurbished). I have taken hundreds of these apart and its always the same. The laser burns out mostly due to **** on the disk itself so be sure to have nothing on the disk.

I cannot activate singstar disk swapping feature. I've updated the system. But I think I havent downloaded an update for the game itself. Is there a way to manuallly download the update?


Only if your online with your PS3.
If you are it should have an updatepending when you put the game in. Not at the play game screen but in your preff ( going to double check that )

I have the latest update on my ps3 which is 3.01 and every time i play games a system update flashes up which is 1.04 so its been done ages ago. also can't get online as it says i need to update but when u...


The latest PS3 update should now be 3.10.

The updates the games ask for is a game update, and not a system update.

You should only have to do the large game update the first time you play a game, and then it may have smaller ones later on.

Bought a blue ray movie to try out on ps3 now it asks for an encryption key, wth? i don't hook my ps3 to inter net, but asking for a system software update to renew encryption key to play blue ray


-= Renew PS3 Encryption Key =-

If i was you i wouden update. the latest update sony have provided is causing alot of problems, such as not being able to read blue-ray movies and games. (3.00/3.01)

I know you dont see it this way, but i acaully see you as a very lucky person that you havent updated your machine yet, my ps3 dont work anymore after i updated, or it does work, but it just cant read any blueray games or movies.

But if you have a ps3 slim you probaly wont have this problem, its more older models that suffer under this bug. :(

i dont know what your current firmware is, but if its way below 2.80, then your still in the safe zone, cuz if you own a usb memory stick you can transfer the 2.80 update to ( USB-ROOT\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP ) and then unplug it from your computer and insert it into your ps3 and then try the update from local storeage.

i hope you can use this :o)

Saved data on Batman is saying its corrupt


you probly upgraded firmware to 3.0 this broke alot of games if you havent already started a new game( this will erase the old saves ) do a system update even if it didnt tell you to, to see if update 3.01 is available. If your already at 3.01 then you may need to start all over or just google ps3 game saves and find one that is about the same level as yours although most are either 50% or 100% complete
