If it's freezing with the same game it means either one or two things.

Your game data is corrupt, fix them by deleting all instances of the game under Game Data. Make sure you backup your game saves to an external usb drive just in case.

2nd possible reason is you've got a bad sector on your hard drive, if the above doesn't work then I would suggest you swap out your hard drive with a new one. 320gb drives from Best Buy for for $50 so it's a pretty cheap fix ;)

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 back-up you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a back-up).

Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Problems/symptons that this appears to have resolved:

- Freezing when doing anything
- No harddrive activity
- Freezing when trying to use onboard keyboard or bringing up keyboard
- Game/movie disc freezes system

My game keeps freezing up, what is the problem and can it be fixed?


Hi. There are many possibilities why PS3 keeps freezing up to a certain point of time. First is, this could be a game disc issue. Ifthis happened to a certain game disc only then probably you might have a purchased a bad game disc. Second is, lens problem. might be the lens is getting hard time reading the disc and needs replacement.

The game keeps freezing.


Assuming you've already cleaned the disc, all you can do is delete the game data. In the crossbar (XMB), go to Game->Game Data Utility. This will delete any patches or game data that have been installed since you first put the disc in. Then PS3 will re-install/re-download the game data. This will not affect Save Games, as those are stored in the Save Data Utility.

My ps3 freezes while playing certain games..i.e. God of War3 and Assassins Creed..What's the problem?


try updating firmware or doing hard reset.

this is a last resort Sony support recommends.

Since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot


Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge


or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..
