Ps3 freezes wgen reach 99% complete and no error code


Hold power on the front of the console, and keep holding until the system powers off again. (Ignore all the beeps and keep holding. It'll sound like someone pulled the power cable out).

Once you've done that, release power, then hold it again till it does a BEEBEEP. It should then (HOPEFULLY) force itself into safe mode and ignore the firmware update.

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.

Most likely, your system is overheating. Make sure you have several inches of space all the way around your system (except of course underneath it) and that it's not in an enclosed space. The system will shut itself off to keep from breaking. Good luck!

PS3 Freezing Mid - Game


Madden 09 itself has a lot of issues. EA is supposed to come up with a patch to fix the freezing issue for Madden 09.
There are a lot of unhappy madden 09 owners outh there.

As far as freezing on any game that sounds like a bluray diode issue or overheating issues.
keep the console in a well vented are (maybe even add a small portable fan from walmart that can help cool down your system.

Belkin (F1DK102P) 2-port KVM Switch freezes


We have the same model and the same problem. The scroll lock combo did not work for us. You need to press Ctrl, Ctrl then up or down arrow.

The manual was a load of old Tom *** as it did not mention this.
