After click on the game title. screen goes black


It is normal for the screen to go black for a couple of seconds once you click on the game title.
Although, for some games, the screen goes black for a longer period of time than other games. Another important factor that determines for how long the screen goes black is the health of your disc.
First of all, it is advised that you exercise patience and wait for a couple of minutes before trying anything. During this period of time, the game is trying to load all the necessary files required to run the game.
On the other hand, if the disc you are trying to play is not very clear or has scratches on its surface, this could make the game go on a black screen for longer than normal. So to prevent this from happening, make sure that the surface of our disc is very clean and is free from dust or scratches.
If you wait for about 5 minutes and it still doesn't work, then you can try ejecting the disc to see if it automatically quits the game and returns to the home screen. If it does, this means that the disc is probably bad and you are advised not to try loading it anymore as it could cause damage to your console.
Although you can try resetting the console if it still behaves this way before you confirm that the disc is bad. Below is the instruction oh how to do this.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

My playstation will read sme games but wont read others


This is a problem that is limited to only two causes.
One of the causes is that your ps3 might have some sort of system error and as a result, this arises.
If you have noticed any other odd activities or happenings, then you can be sure that this is what is going on. All the same, the only thing you can do at home that might solve this problem is for you to do a factory reset on the console. below is an instruction on how to do that.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

Also, the second and most likely reason for this to happen is that your console lens is weak and definitely requires replacement. If the lens is weak, it would load game discs that require less power and efficiency to load and afterwards, that could act a a booster for it to load other games.
If the first solution doesn't work, it is advised that you send it to a repairer for check-up.

Hi i have a problem with my x box 360 3 red lights come on when i try to start the game up ?


If you are getting the 3 red lights I will tell you why it happens and how you can fix it.

The 3 red lights happens because the GPU and the CPU overheat and as this happens the soldering snaps off. you may get a few freeze ups when this happens.

Eventually though you get the 3 red lights and you need to find a way to get it fixed.

You can do this by sending it in and they will repair it for you.

This will take about 4 weeks to get it fixed however.

The other way you can fix it is by repairing it yourself and this means that you can get the job done in under an hour.

There is a list of the best Xbox 360 Repair guides HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.

My ps3 menu wont show up, t will just keep showing the background what should i do


This is the result of having certain errors in the system or bios of your console. It usually requies you to completely format the system and you can do that on your own by following the steps below.
Also, before you reset make sure that there is no disc in the console that it might be trying to load unsuccessfully and therefore causing it to get stuck on the background screen(this usually happens when you are trying to load a disc that is bad and you have the auto-play function on from your settings menu)
HARD RESET INSTRUCTIONS

Hopefully, this would solve your problem.

My ps3 shut down in the middle of game play. Then when I tried turning it pack on, this is what happens... The power light flashes until I touch the power button, then it goes solid red. That means it's...


It seems that your unit may have overheated while you were playing that game, that yellow like you are talking about is the 360's Red Ring of Death. Try this, eject the HDD and let it cool off for about 24 hours. Don't put it in the refrigerator or anything, just let it cool off. Tomorrow, pop it back in and make sure there's nothing covering the air vents. Dust, Paper, a Blu-Ray Player, Home Theater Box, a Wii, a 360, anything.
If it's still doing it tomorrow, call SCEA (1-800-345-7669)

Ps3 wont reconize any discs after freezing


The error code 80710102 you are getting due to a possible connectivity issue of your PS3, since you have not specified in your problem how are you trying to connect your PS3 to internet so i am unable to assist you on that front

For the problem related to discs not playing is becuase ps3 files being corrupt.

1) First take a back up of your data on PS3 - Go to system settings> backup and follow the appropriate settings,i suggest use a usb stick or hard drive to back up your data.

2) Under system settings go to restore ps3 and follow instructions. This will erase all the data on your ps3 and restore it to its factory default, this will restore all the original ps3 files.

3) Once the PS3 install has completed then try updating your PS3 to latest firmware available, now try playing your discs

4) If your ps3 now plays games and dvds go back to system setting> backup, select restore previous back up and all your saved data will be imported from the hard disk, please note: you may not be able to restore any copyright stuff which you could have purchased.

5) If the above steps do not work, kindly send your PS3 for repairs to Sony Customer Service

Hope This Helps

When i try to start the playstation 3 the screen says AN ERROR OCCURED DURING THE START OPERATION (8001002B). I was just wondering what I can do to be able to play games again. Thanks


Does this happen when you start the playstation with a CD in it? If so, try removing the game disc and putting in a new one. If that works, delete all files associated with that Game. If it happens when you don't have anything in there you should contact sony if you have a warranty on it.

You can also try a factory restore on your PS3

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.

Hi..how to format ngage if its stuck up in nokia logo???


Hi,

If you have any files that are important to you, make backups.

1. Make sure you phone is fully charged.

2. Backup your contacts list and personal files to MMC memory card (if possible).

3. Switch-off your phone.

4. Press and hold these three keys together

-Green dial key,
-Star key (*)
-Three key (3)
then press the power on/off to swtich on the 6600 phone.

DO NOT let go the three keys until you see the “formatting” screen displayed

5. After a few minutes, the format will be complete. Your 6600 will now be at its original factory settings.

Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your phone as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
