quit game shuts down ps3

6 Replies 664 Views Created 26-10-2009

Hi all, in the last few days whenever I go to quit game it stalls then reboots the ps3 as if poering on and have to power on my controller.. This has happened on borderlands, supercar challeng singstar and the MAG beta....

The only thing that has changed on my ps3 slim in last week is that borderlands made me install firmware 3.01 as I only had 3.0 and from having seen issues  with 3.01 did not want to install originally.

Anybody else have this issue?? my ps3 is running fine otherwise... should I be worried?

Might be a corrupt file. The ps3 recovery menu may sort it.

 

edit: back up your saves, it wont tell you which file it is and delete it. BTW make sure you READ up on it FIRST before using it.

This has been happening to me for about 8 months, it's random and can happen in any game.  When i press the PS button and quit game, the game is closed but then i hear the beep you get when the ps3 is turned on/off, the ps3 boots up again with the opening screen, but surprisingly it logs me in and i dont have to select my user (as i would if i was turning it on normally)

 

Edit: the thing i forgot to mention is that rarely happens i.e  once every 10 days

Re: quit game shuts down ps3

This happened to me tonight on LBP never had it before, Does anyone also notice on LBP that sometimes you get very faint lines running up the screen?
