My ps3 keeps freezing while playing black ops..it doesnt happen on thenew maps but the old?also i got homefront and anytime i try to go online it freezes??


make sure that you have enough room for ventilation around the ps3. does the unit get very hot at all ? turn it off and if there is a lot of dust just try and blow it off with the compressed air.

Console freezes during game play only way to turn it off is by the swith on the back it is a 40 gig model with a 60 gig hdd installed


i dont really think the HDD change matters.the fault might be from the game you are playing,probably the disc or something.please give a more vivid description of what happens.and the game you are playing too.

Ps3 keeps freezing, with all games.


Hi

This is either a problem with misalignment and either the laser or the drive itself is at fault.

It might be worth disassembling the unit again - clean the laser with a Q-tip and isopropyl alcohol then reinstall the drive being sure that you have carefully followed the correct procedure.

See this link which is very useful to ensure you have done everything right.

In relation to the drive check this video to ensure the correct installation procedure has been followed.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

Ps2 games freeze on my Ps3


The PS2 Game Emulation is not perfect, but they continue to improve the PS3 System Software for better compatibility. Make sure you keep your system up-to-date...

FREEZES AFTER SHORT TIME OF PLAY


Freezing is due to heat issues and/or scratched discs. Mostly heat. I have seen MANY PS3 mother boards that have not had enough heatsink paste applied to the CPU or GPU by Sony to disperse the heat evenly. Also another common problem is dust build up. No matter how clean you think the inside is, there is always dust build up. The easist way to clean it is to get a can of compressed air and stick the straw into the front and side holes and let it rip. It should blow 70-80% of the dust build up out the back of the PS3. You will may even see a cloud come out as I have so many times.

Now for the COD4 online problems....the company that made the game and supports the online play (Infinity Ward) has cut back the number of servers used to support the online game play since the traffic has slowed down. Unfortuantly, I think they scaled back too much. I sold my copy of this game because it was too hard to get into a lobby and stay there for more then 3 min.

I hope this helps you both out. Good luck and happy gaming!!
