You either damaged the mother board or you messed up the thermal paste that was cover the CPU and GPU.

sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. basicly your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink isnt doing its job. there could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.

this can cause the system to freeze or see things on the screen. it needs to be repaired before more issues happen.

Restore deleted NDS games


Open the sd card up, click on games and drag & drop the saved games in. Make sure the saved games are not compressed with a zip file.Next time also try copying and saving the whole card system as sometimes the cards can crash.

My ps3 freezes in the middle of games and movies. And sometimes it doesn't even play the movie.


Hey guys i had this same problem 2 times the second time being tonight and i fixed it both times! I don't usually post on forums but im just trying to help out here i know it can be really frustrating when this happens. Anyways what i did to fix the problem is lift the ps3 a couple inches off the ground and gently drop it so the dust or w.e it is in the ps3 settles n fixes. The second time this happened (tonight) i tried dropping it again and it didn't work, it really got me mad, but then i tried dropping it again this time upside down and after 1 drop it worked. anyways hope this helps :)
If i am helpful to you, please rate me.
Good luck!

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!

Psp dropped now console keeps freezing and then turns itself off sometimes wont turn on at all


its the cpu on the motherboard. When you drop a console what ever make, the motherboard is subjected to a high impact on its end causing the pcb to flex and fracture tiny soldered connections on the back of the cpu.

dismantle the unit, unsolder the ds card slot and reheat the cpu, but be carefull as to much heat will fry the whole thing.

That should sort it.

I think you should ask the person you bought it from if they could switch or fix it for you.
