Sounds to me like you have 1 of 2 problems. 1) The disk has gotten corrupted. 2) The disk has gotten scratched. If you Check the disk literally, and it has scratches that is why. If it just keeps freezing or won't startup, then it has gotten corrupted. Try to Return/Delete the Rental game for another copy and you will be all set.

Please give me a FixYa if this helped. - Evolution

My ps3 just wont load black ops, if it does it will just crash


Hello. So youre having a problem playing one of your favorite games? What you can do is go to your local video rental store and rent a copy of the game. Put it in your ps3 and see if it works. If it works then the game disc is defective or damaged. you should also make sure there are no deep scratches or fingerprints on the bottom side of the disc. If the rental does not work in your ps3 then you will have to send it to sony to get it repaired. The fee for repair runs about$150. Another thing you can try if you are brave and your machine is damaged is to go on the internet and look up a ps3 repair guide. There are many of them you can choose from. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Game freezes


Make sure you load the updates to the system. Some software issues/glitches are fixed that way.

A lot of games have updates as well,

Here is how to update the system by other means than having a broadband connection. (If you don't have one. Just thought I would make the suggestion)

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.


I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.

PS3 80 GB - Error Code 8002991


Hi tomdonnatim,

If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's software to a more current version in order to properly play many Blu-Ray discs.

In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.

More information on the system update can be found below:

My Ps3 wont start my game!


If all of your other games are working then it's probably just a software update for that game. If you are hooked up to the internet via your PS3 it should download the update automatically, but it may not do it unless the game is in the machine. Make sure that your interent connection is good to the PS3, slide the game in and leave it for a while. Maybe a couple of hours and then reset and try game again. Depending on your connection updates could take anywhere from 10mins to over an hour. Sometimes the server will time out too if the update it taking too long. Also, change your PS3 auto start game setting to off, once you do this you will have to slect the game from your PS3 menu to access it and play it. If you have a friend with a PS3 or go the store where you bought it and see if they have the same problem with the game, it could just be bad batch of discs. In that case buy it at another store.

Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates. Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.
