If your ps is under warranty then speak to sony, or you can reformat the hd on a lap top. You can also upgrade to a 200gb hd, which is very simple to do, and only costs about 40-50 pound or 80-100 dollars.

My ps3's data got corrupted and it said i could restore it.i did, but now my online friends list is gone and so is my other data!please help me!


Unfortunately, if you did a full system restore without backing up your data, it's gone. Sorry, man. However, if you sign into your PSN account, you'll still have your trophies. I know it's not much. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

After about 20 minute my game freezes and then after switching off then on again it wont read the disc at all its a ps3


This is most likely to be a system error. This occurs when there is some sort of error or malfunction in the system sector of your console.
The best way to fix this is by following the steps below to hard reset your console
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 backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Freezes at loading screen ...


This is usually as a result of some system error or failure while the console is starting up, this causes the system not to start up properly.
The first and only thing you can do to solve this is to do a hard reset. Follow the instructions below

Ps3 keeps freezing on me.


This is usually caused by two major conditions.
The first condition being that if the Hard disk is really loaded with data and they are occupying a really large amount of the total disk space. This makes the console to have some kind of extra work to do while loading all the data which you have loaded onto it.
The second most known cause for this issue is as a result of errors in the hard disk or system. It makes it difficult for the system to operate as it should do normally.
Whatever the case may be, you can solve it by doing a hard reset on the PS3 console.
Below is the instruction on how to do a hard reset.

entertainment;kw=;ppos=atf;tile=2;sz=728x90;ord=123456789? Well, i had some major problems w/my PS3 recently locking up and not playing any games/movies. After calling Customer Support, they suggested that i do a hard reset. This did seem to solve my problems, so here is the procedure per Sony CS. I would consider this a last resort troubleshooting procedure.

Hi my ps3 wont let me sign in... after like 10 seconds it says an error has accoured and then the error code my friend is also having the same problem


For one, you and your friend can not log into the SAME account, if that is your intentions. If you two are using different accounts then that is a different story.

You might could check out Sony Play Stations website to ensure there console servers are not down for maintenance.

Or you could do a hard reset if all else fails.

Receiving error message - An error has occurred. You have been signed out of PlayStationNetwork. (8002A220)


Getting kicked out of the Play Station Network, just off the top of my head, someone could be using your account and is logged in right now. Therefore kicking you off every time you log on.

Other than that, you could preform a hard reset. Here are instructions.

Hopefully if there is or was any type of virus it will defiantly be removed. If there is some other type of problem having to do with the hardware, then you are going to have to send it to Sony for a replacement.
