When i go online with my ps3 playing black ops it freezes then dosnt work it starts when the background music stops then resetting a blue screen comes up then goes back to user menu


Hi,

If your PS3 is freezing up then you need to stop the heat build up internally and to do this you will need to get it repaired.

Now you can send it in and they will fix it for you that is the standard method however bear in mind that there will be a repair charge of $150 for the fix which is quite steep!

The other way that you can fix it is by using a good PS3 Repair guide.

Just a quick word of advice though, make sure you check out these reviews of the top guides so you can be sure what they offer.

Hi all, never experienced this problem before and didn't come across it anywhere. so when i turn my ps3 on it starts up with the ps3 logo screen and then goes onto the background scenario and thats...


Not really an idea, but a theory. It sounds like your system can not load the user interface, and beyond trying a different hard drive, this is beyond my experience to fix. I suggest checking some message boards and perhaps calling Sony. Keep me informed on what you find, as I will be looking as well.

Ps3 is not loading just the background, there are no icons. if i put a disc in a icon comes up loading but then nothing happens jscreen just goes to background again.


Sounds like your ps3 needs to be reformatted or to a point its having a problem reading your hard-drive. Reseat the hard-drive and try again, if that doesnt work it could be that your unit has gotten a virus that is going around on the PSN, and the unit might need to be formatted.

Ow to fix your playstation 3 when nothing comes up on the screen. the loading screen does not come up. it just stays with the background


dust could be the problem, dust in side the console itself (cd tray area etc) or the A/V cables could be fried, try using a different set of A/V cables or test the ps3 on another TV
