Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My playstation 3

I have encountered problems with my ps3 freezing up and loosing connection within online gameing. Now it wont even read ps3 or blue ray games. but it will identify ps2 games and regular dvds. I reformatted, restored. erased all saved data. Only had it 6 months and now i have a 600 dollar paper weight. I thought maybe it was somehow stuck in ps2 mode, but i couldnt find a setting to change. But i also figured restoring it would have taken care of the problem? what do i do?

The ps3 will freeze up when playing a game and wont read disks


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Also sounds like you need to re-set the laser for the drive.

Ps3 problem : wont turn on


First Try these steps for basic troubleshooting, your PS3 has got "Yellow Light of Death" hardware fault

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.


The problem you have encountered needs professional service and repair, so do not try fiddling much with your PS3 at home, if the above steps do not work please send your playstation 3 for repairs to Sony.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Upgrade to the newest firmware, since 3.0 had some freezing issues with some games, if your internet connection is slow it would also cause it to freeze up

PS3 having trouble reading game discs!!!


hey guys. the problem is that the blue ray reader is some how broken and it won't work. mine kept freezing during games like after 3 mins. and it wouldnt read any more discs for that day. you need to change the blue ray reader and that costs about 175$. thats alot of money and its probably not worth it.
