When i play games in my ps3 for some reason they freeze or they act like they want to id like to know how do i get that problem fixed

Hi, its not easy to fix, 1st check if you have any warranty left if you do take it back and get an exchange if you dont your going to need to get the gpu and cpu chip reflowed as the problem you are having is caused by over heating.

how ever it may just be a dirty dvd drive

try the following.
1 get a cd lenses cleaner from a computer hardware store and run this in the ps3
2 get a can of compressed air from comp hardware store and using the straw attatchment spray air into the dvd drive to remove any build up of dust.

if them to ideas dont solve the problem then your ps3 has over heated so do the following,
1 check all the air vents are free from dust and vac them out if needed
2 make sure your not using the ps3 whilst its on carpet or on top of anything like dvd player or sky box as this will cause it to over heat a lot quicker
3 use the ps3 standing up this allows the bottom where the fan is to keep a lot cooler buying the stand will prevent it from falling over but just to try it you can stand it on something solid

if after doing the above you still have the problem your going to need to find someone who can reflow the gpu and cpu chip to see how much of a big job it is use google and type in how to reflow gpu and cpu chip on ps3 then hit search and have a look at a few of the sites and you will see the kind of work involved its not the kind of job you can do yourself

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Please describe your ps3 will not read games or movies problem: what can I do to fix it

hi, the first thing to try is go to a computer hardware store and buy a cd lense cleaning kit then run this inside your ps3 and this will then clean the lense and should hopefully get it working for you

if it dont check you have any warranty left before you let anyone do any work on it if you have no warranty then your going to need to get a new dvd drive fitted getting this done will solve your problem and will get it working again.

this is not an easy job to do yourself so dont try it if you have never done this before.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17

Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

Hard disk gone bad

I am not 100% sure but there is a risk associated with order most electronics over the internet. The reason for this is most products are embedded with whats known as "Regional Programming" or "Regional Coding".

Regional coding makes products only work in specific pre programmed regions (or with products from those regions ie cds from other countries dont work in your dvd plaer) the reason for this is in order to sell them internationally they have to be brought to a price relative to that market, and if you were to exchange your currency to a countries with a nlesser GNP (Gross National Product which determines international dollar value) you would be able to purchase the product from that country at a lesse price. now so the whole systme doesnt fall apart they do this.

I do not know if PS3's hardware is like this but i know international games are so just to sure i would advise against it or make sure you know where the source got the hardware.

Playstation 3 problems

Hey Pete,

Try unplugging the ethernet cable on your ps3 or, if it comes down to it i would retore my playstation 3 to factory settings. But before you do that see if you have files in there that you don't want to delete cause once you restore it to factory settings all the files in your hard drive will be erased. I think unplugging the Ethernet cable should solve your problem.

My ps3 dont start

It is believed that what you have is a general hardware failure. Like the 3 red lights on Xbox 360. Best thing to do is call Sony. Good luck.
