Check out your ps3 guide that came with the ps3 and check out the hard drive section, pull the hd out and replace it.. shows you how to in the guide.. shut the system ff after you re-install the hd and let me know what happens. Should fix it!

I have a Playstation 3. Starting tonight, everytime I put in NBA 2K11 the game will load to the main screen and ask me to press start. Everytime I press start me game freezes and I have to restart my...


Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

DNS Error 80710102


This is a really annoying bug that’s present even in the current version (2.10 as of this post) of the Playstation 3 system software. When I got my PS3 earlier this month, it was using the oldest version, 1.10, but I couldn’t update it because the DNS error was preventing me from getting online.
After searching online for that error number, I came across a few sites that said the PS3’s DNS server needs to match that of your router. I made the appropriate changes to the PS3 and off I went. There was still a problem, though: it wouldn’t login to the Playstation Network, even though it passed the DNS test. Augh.
Some of the more silly answers I found included resetting your modem, calling your provider, telling the PS3 to automatically find all settings, and turning off your firewall. None of these make any difference.
The only option I had left was to download the update to a USB flash drive. This is a poor solution because not everyone HAS a flash drive. (You could probably do this using the 80 gig model’s card reader, though I wouldn’t know about that.) Anyway, here is a simplified version of the directions I followed:
1. Make a new directory in the flash drive named PS3, then one named UPDATE (both must be in all caps).
2. Save PS3UPDAT.PUP to /PS3/UPDATE
3. Plug the flash drive into the console, then from the XMB: Settings -> System Update -> Update via Storage Media
After this is done, you can delete the stuff you created on the flash drive.
Now, you’re using the most recent software and it still keeps giving you DNS errors? The only solution I’ve found so far is to keep trying to login until it works. That may sound like a shitty answer, but it’s the only one I’ve found that works with any certainty. After searching for a good amount of time and trying every suggestion, brute force is the most dependable answer I found.
Update: I’ve been using OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 & 208.67.220.220) for a couple of weeks now with little luck, but some people say it helps.
Update 2: I solved the mystery: spanning tree. Spanning Tree Protocol is a protocol for preventing loops in a network of switches. I had to turn on spanning-tree portfast on the port my PS3 is plugged into. Chances are this solution is completely unhelpful for most people, but I’m putting it up here anyway, just in case.

PS3 game stopped playing, screen went blank


hay if you fell it getting hot fast it's the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety precaution. so there for it will keep freezing of shouting down.

Download freeze


Is this when you try a second and third time to download the same movie? Try a different one. Update to version 2.2 (came out last night). It has upgraded reliability for the internet. Hopefully that helps. Good luck!!
