    my system do the same thing, what o i do?

  • Anonymous Nov 22, 2008

    I have a 40gb PS3. Had it for a year now no problems at all. I bought fifa 2 months ago with a game gurantee (allows me to get a new disc back in case of damage) and played the game regularly. Recently the game has started losing its commentary following with the freezing of the game,when the ball goes out of play. Then it stays like this for as long as you leave it, it does not recover. I hold the PS button to press quit game or to turn off console, then the system beeps three times and cant turn off and just stays on a pitch black screen. I play all my other games such as burnout paradise, gta IV, vegas 2 and they all work perfectly fine on and offline. Only on fifa this happens. I retured the game and got a brand new fifa game. I thought my disc must just be scratched. With the new fifa this still happens. It freezes but all other games work perfectly fine. Plsss help it is very frustrating. I havnt completed a game in the past 2 weeks without it freezing.

    Mine started freezing when I got madden 09. It started seldom but became more and more frequent. Now it won't even load the game or a blu-ray movie.

    As recent as two days ago on 5/1/09 I put the movie (on blu ray) Seven pounds by Will Smith, and noticed that it kept on freezing. It had never done that before, so I tried other movies that I played before and never had issues with and it did it with those as well. I don't know what's up, but will not send to Sony since they charge $150 to "fix". What can I do?

Hey guys i fixed this...

its over heatings the CPU and GPU

you need to disassemble it...

then you need to replace the thermal compound with artic silver 5 as the stuff sony has put on is very dry and cracked, i have done this 4 7 of my mates PS3'S and they all work fine.

only do this if its out of warrently, if you removin the sticker on it, it shines through void

It could be something that's been called blu flu. I've had it, it's sommet you cannot fix. I just rang up Sony and got sent a replacement.

My ps3 has just started to stop playing blu ray films after 20min

the laser is starting to go bad in the dvd drive. It takes more power for the drives laser to read and play a blu ray movie then it does to play a dvd game.

You can either replace the laser if you have the technical knowledge to take the dvd drive apart, or just replace the drive. You can usually find either one on ebay.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

Ps3 60gb won't play blue ray movies

It's your blu-ray drive.

They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.

The laser is three part (cd / dvd / blu-ray). The blu-ray is usually first to go.

PS3 region code

Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!
