First; re-place your console to a better ventillated area, use a vacuum cleaner to **** dust out of the grills. if this doesnt help, that means your laser lens is approaching death.

After running about 15 minutes the engine dies out and won't start? what about 1/2 hr and able to restart but will die after cutting 15-20 minutes


Is it possible that your engine is overheating? When that happens, the engine tolerances expand, internal resistance increases and often the engine will just shut down till it cools, shrinks back to normal and then will restart. Check for oil levels and lubrication.

If it is that you better take care of asap before the engine permanently "freezes."

if light on dash is on, then it sounds like a bad crank sensor. shuts off while driving down road, then will not start for about 15 minutes. heres more causes:: car shuts off when tempurature gets to normal-- low coolant, failing coolant tempurature sensor, air in water pump, failed radiator fan, it takes 10 to 15 minutes for a car to warm up. check or replace coolant temp. sensor if above is ok. have a good day !

A few days ago my Playstation began freezing midgame while playing NBA 2k11. Now when I turn it on, all of the icons such as game, network, playstation network, friends, music, etc are on the home screen...


Hi mttwlsn16,

If you noticed that system recently freezes up, it migth be overheating or full of dust. There are several ways on how to check the issue, either you clean the system or place it in a cool area. Here are some ways to troubleshoot the problem.

1. Turn off the system completely then disconnect it from the power outlet. Press and hold down the power button for 15-20 seconds. Try to restart the system now. If still has the same problem proceed to step 2.

2 .Try to Unplug and replug all the cables.

3 .Take out the hard-drive, and put it back in after your console has been started up.

4. Make sure that you have at least 60% of the hard drive space free.

5. Clean your game discs with a micro-fiber cloth.

6. Clean the ps3 from dust. You can Use a micro-fiber cloth and use vacuum accessories to clean the dust from the grills and fans.

Alternative solution to remove the dust:
--> turn off the system by switching it off from the back. Please make sure that there's no inserted disc on the system.
--> Now hold the eject button and while holding it try to switch it back on. Fan will run for about 20-30 seconds and it will clean up the dust.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ps3 locking up


yes, this must be a problem with your blu-ray reader . did you try to run another bluray disc game ?

you should try:
  • restoring system settings
  • reinstalling possible game files.
  • look for possible game updates
  • reinstalling sony firmware (re-update via USB)
if nothing of this works, you should take the system to a support centre for verify possible hardware damage .

Plays, freezes, green lines, won't come back on


It's a GPU problem. Are you comfortable opening up your PS3 or would you rather pay $150 through Sony?

Let me know.

In the meantime you can check out my PS3 blog for some tips, warnings, etc.

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.
