Everything seems fine until you try to load a game from disk or hard drive..Work ok for playing music cd's, accessing the internet, viewing pictures. We get no picture to the TV (had tried two now) when loading the game. Seem to be ok when connected via scart connections or HDMI connection for viewing system settings etc etc Select load game no picture. Help or suggestions...going to load any new system updates tonight.
I have had advice directly from SCE that updates should be done from a flash Drive and not directly from the internet connection on the system, as its quicker and more stable.
I have just had my unit crash on me, by updating first the PSStore update patch, which caused the original issue, then an update for RSV2 pretty much finished it off.

I will make two comments.
1- make sure you have backed everything up you want to keep :-)
2 - a hard disk will appear to slow down as it fills up. it is actually running at the same speed but must work much harder to find space to place your data. if your disk is past 70% full you will probably notice a performance hit - if its past 90% full you will see a major hit. if it gets much more than that you run the risk of having real problems.
whatever the cause of the problem, the first thing you need to do is back it up. then make sure its not over loaded and if it is just get a larger drive. get your data over to the new drive and off you go.
Ok, if you are having problems with loading games/movies that are disc based and not ones that are in the HDD (Hard Drive) or on a usb drive (This means digital movies and games), chances are your PS3's Blue Ray drive is damaged and you will need to get a replacement. If you can't play anything even if it's Digital/HDD based or Disc based, you may have to send it in for repairs, or get a Replacement PS3.
given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.
It is possible that the information on the disk is corrupted. This can happen during production though it is rare. If you have the NXE dashboard you can try copying the disk to the hard drive. It usually doesn't copy if the data on the disk is bad. If you have an Xbox live Silver account or above you can also get the latest update for the game, which may solve your problem.
Alternatively, try another copy of the game.
It depends, is it noisy when you play a game from DVD or just when it is running ? From Xbox, you can expect that it is just as noisy as computer without a silent fan.
If it is noisy when playing a game, it is normal since it's loading everything from the disk and Microsoft made the disk to spin fast so you won't have to spend a lot of time waiting before the game loads.
Then, if it is only when you play a game - i recommed for you to install it to your hard-drive, that way the console won't have to use the disk to load everything.
the ps3 hard drive is very intuvative or to configure the probelm. The ps3 usally copys the game to the hard drive and save data continously with out any consent so your hard drive or memory bank maybe overloaded with info .
It's amazing how great music can enhance any game, particularly action games. As the movie industry has known for about a century, music can make a bad video experience seem a lot better. Xbox is the only video game device that lets you add your own custom soundtracks to your favorite games. Here's how:
Insert an audio CD into the Xbox optical drive.
Access the Music menu from the Xbox dashboard display.
Select Music > Audio CD > Copy, then choose the Copy menu.
Select the tracks you want, using Play or Pause commands to audition songs.
Choose Copy, and Xbox will store the songs on the hard disk. Then insert your game disc and load the songs using the game's setup menu.
Not all Xbox games support the custom soundtrack features, but many of the most popular ones do.
