If you are having trouble with your games freezing it is possible that you have corrupted data on the PS3 hard drive. The link below will take you through resetting the drive.

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
Take care.

My screen stays blank when I turn on. Lights blue and green come on but screen stays blue


If your display settings aren't set to automatic this can occur. Example: if you have set resolution to 1080i and are trying to play it on a display that has 1080p you will get a blank screen or no signal message. you will have to connect your PS3 to the last display you had an image on and change the "display setting" to "automatic" for your PS3 to work on all displays. when you choose a specific resolution to the "display settings" it will only work on that specific resolution. hope this helps.

Blue no signal screen in the middle of playing a game - ps3 hdmi


Have your tried a different plug HDMI plug on your TV? Maybe bring your PS3 to a friend who has HDMI and try it on his TV. What about a diffferent HDMI cable?

Could also be your HDMI on your PS#, but try these other simple tasks first.

Good Luck

My thinkpad got stuck up while booting & i am getting blue screen. No further processing.


Is there any error message that you can see?What does it say?Or,is it just a blue screen and you can't see nothing? Blue screen can be caused by any hardware,software,poorly written device drivers recently installed and accidently shutting down of PC. If you can't see anything then take out the battery and press the power button for about 60secs.Startup without the battery first using the adapter and then see.If you still see the same blue screen then try the other options:
I want you to press F8,at startup, to bring up the advanced boot option and select "last known good configuration". Go to the BIOS setting pressing the DEL key at startup and select Load setup defaults [you might find that option in EXIT ]. Try removing any extra hardware attached like scanner,printer,pen drives etc.Later attach them again one by one and switching off and on the PC just to make sure which hardware is gone kaput. If you are able to startup the computer,use the SYSTEM RESTORE function to go back to previous date when your pc was working fine.This is to make sure you don't end up getting a blue screen at startup,again. The last option would be installing Windows OS. You can try and change the RAM sticks,if you have two then remove one n then start,do the same with the other RAM.

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.

You should go into the safe mode and try to uninstall or undo the previous work. Else use the system restore. But if it continues again with a blue screen error, then u should format ur pc, further if u experience blue screen error then u should note that one of ur hardware is damaged.

Thankyou...!!!
