Well, if you bought one of the originals, there may still be bugs to work out inside of it. I recommend bringing it back to the retailer and have it repaired. Bring your warranty. If you don't have a warranty, you'll have to replace it.

My ps3 keeps freezing but I ha ent played with it


Freezing is a sign of overheating. Try cleaning your PS3 with your vacuum. If it keeps freezing you might need to open it and replace your thermal paste.

The actual freezing problem can be caused by the GPU overheating and SO can the no display error as well. For an in depth look at how to fix both of these problems see this > http://www.bestps3repairguides.com/

My game keeps freezing up, what is the problem and can it be fixed?


Hi. There are many possibilities why PS3 keeps freezing up to a certain point of time. First is, this could be a game disc issue. Ifthis happened to a certain game disc only then probably you might have a purchased a bad game disc. Second is, lens problem. might be the lens is getting hard time reading the disc and needs replacement.

What should i do if my PS3 keeps freezing When i


The big question here is what can you do when you see your ps3 freezes? Well there are a few things that you could do.

The first thing you could try doing is sending it back to Sony if you really want to. Because they are the ones that made it, they will certainly be able to fix the annoying ps3 freezing, but that certainly comes with a very high price. You could pay about $150-200 just to repair the ps3 freezing issue and you might not have your console for 1-2 months! Can you deal with that? Can you really do without Solid Snake and that massive alien invasion for an entire month?

If the answer to that is no, then there are a few things that you can try by yourself as far as fixing the Ps3 goes.

First of all you could try searching for loose cables within the system. This could cause a problem, and this is especially true if there is a loose cable on the actual hard drive. In some cases it might be necessary for you to replace the hard drive which would be pretty easy considering that the Playstation 3 uses a standard SATA hard drive.

Because it is most likely an overheating problem it couldn't hurt to have a look at the fans. There is one large fan on the bottom of the console that is vital to it's operation, so make sure that one is actually working. If it is not, then you should either replace it or put a cooling pad underneath the Playstation.

As luck would have it (or not), many other people have run into the Ps3 freeze problem themselves. There are some that have managed to fix the ps3 freezing problem on their own, and they were nice enough to put together guidebooks that you can learn how to repair ps3 freezing problems in http://www.ylod.net/.

These guides will cost you some money, but not nearly as much money as you would be paying to ship the console back to Sony. On top of that, you won't have to wait 6 weeks for your console to be repaired! These fixes are usually quick and easy and they work like a charm if you follow the instructions step by step.

Stop sitting around wondering if your Ps3 will ever work again. The truth is it could probably be working today!

I have a playstation 1 game that i play on my 3,


Yes, GameStop and EB games both sell an adaptor you can buy, I believe it's around $20 that allows you to save and copy your data from the PS3. I have Gran Turismo 3 and I had just about everything in it on my PS2; I thought I had to start all over when I got my PS3 but I got one of these adapters and it worked wonders. Same applies for PS1 games.

Good luck and if I've helped you please give me a good rating.

Respectfully,

Don

Unfortunetly unless you were to find the game in the PSN store then you could play it without freezing but since PS3 doesnt support memory cards you won't be able to do that. Its really too bad I know how you feel when you data ends up useless because of a glitchy old game :C

PS3 Freezes when it loads certain games


The same thing hapeend to me with Infamous and Killzone 2. It wouldnt happen with MGS4. I replaced the optical lense and the harddrive on the ps3 and it did nothing. I even had a strong fan blowing air into it. Nothing worked. I took an L and sent it to Sony. But thankfully i got the money from gambling craps in Vegas so im not upset about it.
