It doesn't sound like an overheating issue, more of either a disc read issue or firmware issue.

Please try my following tip for re-installing the firmware. If this does not fix it then try cleaning the laser lens.

Failing that, if it is an overheating problem usually it will tell you with an onscreen prompt or shut down with a flashing yellow light

Step 1.

Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2.

Press and hold the power button. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off back into standby mode (red light on). You must now release the power button.

Step 3.

Press and hold the power again. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

Step 4.

Your Playstation 3 will now start up with a screen asking you to connect a controller via USB. Connect your controller and then press the PS button.

Step 5.

A menu will now be displayed on screen. Select option 3 "Restore File System". This will then ask you to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the system restore. Accept whatever the Playstation 3 says

Hopefully this will cure the problem on its own.

Hope this helps

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

MLB Ther Show freezes up on rtts on ps3


Its not the hard drive.. I'm guessing your game works fine but either freezes on past balls or when you try to advance from spring training to the regular season..right? Somehow the new patch messed it all up..been trying to find an answer too..
My best guess is we have to wait for the next patch now...sorry

The PS3 works fine but freezes in career mode only. Is this also an over heating issue?


It could be an over heating issue but freezing usually means you've got a weak Laser Eye. What you should do is next time it freezes eject the game and let it sit there for 5 minutes. If it goes back to the DashBoard then you've just got a weak laser eye which although more expensive that's a simple repair able to be done by yourself. I can help you in takeing the machine apart, or i can refer you to an Over the Internet companie such as GamesaGalore.com If you provide me with the serial number I can tell you which Eye you're going to need to order & how to go about putting it in.
