Hi, the reason you are experiencing this issue is because the Playstation Network is still not up and running in all areas. It is only working in some. You best bet is to just stop trying to sign in to get on-line and play your games normally off-line until the issue is resolved. They will most likely release an update when it is time for it to be up and running in your area.

I hope this helps!

    If your PS3 is freezing then I suggest reformatting your HDD by going to the settings. Before reformatting you should create a back up for your data first, which can also be done through the settings. The reformatting will take hours so only do it when you have time. This should help the issue, it seems to solve most issues.

    I'm trying that now hopefully it works , if not any other solutions?

  • Nik Harmon May 17, 2011

    If that doesn't work you should call technical support, it will most likely be an issue with the console itself.

    Give me thumbs up!

When playing Red Dead Redemption the game freezes


If a game freezes, then the problem is usually due to the PS3 overheating. The PS3 needs good airflow through the vents so make sure that you don't put it in a corner or in a place where the hot air won't linger around for long like near a window. Also, don't play for too long; give your PS3 a break every once in a while (1 minute breaks don't count) :)

I am a ps3 player and i attempt to play assassins creed: brotherhood multiplayer, and it has the animus sign and won't load... ive watched the multiplayer intro and then waited for hours, please help


This is because the Playstation Network is currently undergoing maintenance due to a recent hacking of their network. We are all still waiting for the Network to be fully restored, until then you cannot play and PS3 games online.

Just hang in there!

On my ps3 It won't let me play online or watch


The Playstation Network is literally undergoing maintenance after being Hacked. The Servers are all down so no one can use the network for now. It is not an issue with your system so don't be worried.

Hope this helps.

My ps3 doesnt let me play online call of duty


Do you have a PSN account? If no, create one, sign in, then try again.
If you already have a PSN account and you're signed in, can you access the PSN store? If not, verify that your PS3 is connected to the internet.

If everything above failed, it would be easier for us if you gave us the error message you're getting when trying to play online.

My new homefront ps3 will play on my friends playstation but will not play on mine help


If it won't play online what you'll need to do is set a static ip in your router for your ps3 and then open ports TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070
(you'll need to contact your router about that)

If it won't play AT ALL follow these steps ( http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=1488 ) to get into safe mode and select option 3.

If NONE of your PS3 games work and NONE of your blu rays work, your blu ray drive is fried and you'll need to get it fixed. You can go to: us.playstation.com/getservice to get it fixed.

My new PS3 Call of Duty black Ops game is freezing when I try to play online. I cannot get it to load at all.


I've read that deleting the files for the game and/or signing out of PSN helps (I haven't tried either, but I can't get past the title screen and cutscenes without my PS3 freezing)
