So My PS3 Keeps freezing every time I play A Game and It wont even load a couple a Games And I Only Got it late October of last year what's wrong with it?


1st of all I would recommend doing a system restore to see if that will take care of your issue.
2nd if that doesn't work, if you bought the extended warranty from the store you bought it at you should take it back to that store, if you didn't then Sony warranties for 1 year and that it would be a good idea to send it to them. Good Luck! I hope this helps.

NOTE: A system restore will delete all data on your console. I recommend backing up your console onto a usb flash drive.

I put in the game Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and instead of loading in the game the screen pops up and says (Accessing game data. Please do not switch off the system while the HDD access indicator is...


This means it's loading your Game Data. There's nothing wrong with this appearing on the screen, it's common and simply indicates that it's loading your last saved state.
If it's stuck on that for a long period of time and not taking you into the game, then you need to go into the Saved Data Utility on your PS3 and delete your saved data file for Gran Turismo 5. Something might be corrupt.
Gran Turismo 5 uses a lot of the PS3's power, so having longer than average load times doesn't mean something is wrong with your PS3.

My ps3 freezes in the middle of games and movies. And sometimes it doesn't even play the movie.


Hey guys i had this same problem 2 times the second time being tonight and i fixed it both times! I don't usually post on forums but im just trying to help out here i know it can be really frustrating when this happens. Anyways what i did to fix the problem is lift the ps3 a couple inches off the ground and gently drop it so the dust or w.e it is in the ps3 settles n fixes. The second time this happened (tonight) i tried dropping it again and it didn't work, it really got me mad, but then i tried dropping it again this time upside down and after 1 drop it worked. anyways hope this helps :)
If i am helpful to you, please rate me.
Good luck!

Nothing comes up on Home Screen?


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
