PS3 Freeze

24 Replies 4779 Views Created 15-01-2013

Hey, I currently am using a 320GB Slim PS3 running on 4.31 and I seem to freeze during gameplay (in the middle of Black Ops 2 matches, FIFA 13 games, AC3 loading screens). This did not happen at all on 4.30. Anyone know why this is happening? Is it just the update?

Re: PS3 Freeze

Oh and just before it freezes it usually makes a high pitch sound. I'm not sure if that's the PS3 stuffing up or my T.V..

Hi ty-hoff98,

 

Where can you hear the sound coming from, is it through the speakers or from the PS3 itself?

It'd be coming from my T.V so it's probably the T.V messing up with the lag/freezing on the PS3. It gets really annoying. 

That solves the 2nd issue, could you help me with the 1st issue relating to the freezing? Thank you.

Re: PS3 Freeze

Does it freeze on the XMB menu or in a specific game for instance?

 

If its a game, try deleting the data for the game in 'Game Data Utility' and reloading the patches for it. If its on the XMB, try Safe Mode and option 3 specifically.

 

Let me know how it goes,

It only freezes in games, not on the XMB menu. I deleted the patch for FIFA 13 and redownloaded and install and it still freezes. I've reinstalled the 4.31 update and it still freezes. How do I get into Safe Mode?

Okay, I've put my PS3 into safe mode and selected option 3. Now I will test it out if my PS3 still freezes. I'll update you shortly. Thank you.

Re: PS3 Freeze

UPDATE: My PS3 still freezes during gameplay after I have put my PS3 into safe mode and selected option 3.

Hi ty-hoff98,

 

You might want to give the other safe mode options a go, although options 4 and 5 will remove data so it would be best to back it up onto an external drive if you can?
