ps3 keeps freezing

7 Replies 363 Views Created 12-07-2013
Hey guys I come here with a problem.

well ive been playing PSN threw my mobiles wifi hotspot and its been working fine untill a few days ago when its started freezing while turning on the ps3. Everytime I have to reset the ps3 completely when I want to play. Loosing all my data having to download all back, could this problem be the hotspot? Can the phone give my ps3 any virus?

Is they a way to fix this? Thanks for any help.

Wow.. That was hard work to read.

To answer your questions, no and no. Not sure, it's probably overheating.

For starters, the PS3 isnt designed to be played through mobile internet. as this will only cause the mobile network to give you greif in the future. you should get home broadband. 

 

Take a look at this site - http://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/ 

 

Also, what model of ps3 do you have? ie. Fat, Slim, Super Slim

If you can support yourself living alone, im sure you can afford broadband. Unless you want your mobile network giving you angry telephone calls non-stop. I've made this mistake before. They revoked my contract because I use 3g for 2 weeks and used 30GB of data, even though it is supposed to be "unlimited" 

 

Obviously that's what the asterisk is for.

Also when the ps3 comes on it says file corrupted so its restoring takes a while but when it gets to around 40-50% it crashes and the screen goes black.
