DIRT! Thats all I have to say. You need a new HDD or your whole system needs to be professionally cleaned.

When playing ps3 it keeps freezing


Hard Drive

If your PS3 lags or freezes when loading content from the hard drive, the drive either lacks free space or is faulty. To create more space, try removing items from your hard drive or getting a new hard drive with a higher storage capacity. A faulty hard drive must be replaced.

My ps3 has been freezing up lately, what do i do


Dear guerrero_flo,

Have you updated your PS3 firmware? Keeping your PS3 up-to-date is a good way to keep it in shape.

Also, you should check on the hard drive health. You can remove the SATA hard drive from your PS3, connect it to a SATA to USB connector, and run a health checking program such as HDTune Pro.

If the hard drive is fine, your PS3 (the older models, anyways) could be slowly dying. All hardware have a "bathtub curve", which determines when it breaks down. Video game consoles, especially younger models of them, tend to die slowly after 4-5 years.

Good luck,
Ken

Hooked up the net to my ps3. Ask to update system came back with an error system is corrupted. Keeps restarting the system will not boot up


Ok you need to go to playstations website and find a update for your dashboard and put it on a memory stick or sd card if you have a older ps3. You have to download it onto the memory stick just like playstation says then you put the memory stick in the ps3 and it should start updating from the memory stick. I've fixed several ps3s with the same problem. Your hard drive probably didnt download the update all the way so its sticking when you turn it on and restarting trying to do the same process over and over again stopping in the same spot.

Every time i turn my system on it says the Ps3 will restore your corrupted hard drive, i finish restoring it then it restarts and i keep having to restoring it again and again. Is there anyway I can...


How are you restoring it? You need a memory stick and you need to find the update on playstations website and follow instructions on how to save it to the memory stick. Then you insert it in the ps3 and it should start restoreing from the memory stick. Atleast this is how you do it when your putting a new hard drive in your ps3 or a used laptop hard drive. It wont restore if it doesnt know what programs to put on it.

I Keep Receiving Error 80029C77 When I Try The Latest Update For MyPS3


I received this today and first I downloaded the update via the web on your computer to a USB flash drive. Once downloaded create the folders PS3 and the folder UPDATE within PS3. PS3\UPDATE. Move downloaded file into the UPDATE folder. (folders must be in CAPS). Then when the unit is off press and hold the power button until it beeps 3 times. A menu should come up on the screen. Select the option that states update system software (I believe its 6). The unit will update via the flash drive. After that the unit will restart and should be updated and working.

Keeps going back to defult settings


Since your Playstation 3 is not loading properly then most likely you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you address this. If you still have trouble then you have a more serious hardware problem.

I have had this problem also. I fixed the x clamps, cleaned the laser, and I keep my xbox console open to keep it cool. Most of the time I will be in the middle of a game and it freezes. Other times when...


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

If you system keeps freezing after you installed your system updates it is possible that you did not get a clean install of the update and your hard drive has corrupted data on it. The link below will help you address this. Note if you still have trouble then you have a more serious hard ware problem.

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!!
