as a matter of fact i do, when you call them tell them your problem with the ps3 and they should either tell you how to fix it or give you a new 1.

 

the number is:08705998877

It's broken.

Take it back to where you bought it from and get a new one.

Like I did.

I had similiar proplem couple of months ago. Only mine would play about 10 mins of any game before crashing, yet it would play dvds n blu ray disks perfectly. At the time of reporting it mine was the only console to have done this. Sony said to try and do a full system restore first. This didnt help so they just replaced the console like for like within 5 days can't fault them for the service I got. 

 

Does it play blu ray disks? if not you have a faulty laser which is quite common in the 60gb version a replacement can be bought at consoleshop.com but ruins gauntee if you replace yourself unless its expired and you havent bothered with the continious play. There is tutioral on youtube on how to do it.

 

I now dont use my ps3 for blu ray films or pause games for to long.

this is my link form yesterday ,this is a problem ive had that may be the same as yours im not sure if u own gta but i think it could be the cause or call of duty???????have a read

 

 

 

about 4weeks ago whilst playing gta on my 60gb ps3 the game froze ,i turned off the console and it wasnt until the next day that i turned the game back on to find that the game wouldnt load all i got was the swirling circle in the top right hang corner ,i tried a dvd ,blu ray, cd ,ps2 game ,another ps3 game  but none worked .sony collected the console and repaired the problem.after i recieved the console back i had about two week of play that was fine then whilst playing gta the console did the exact same thing as before .so again i rang sony and this time they replaced the whole console.whilst waiting for its return i googled my problem to find that a few other people have had this problem with gta and call of duty modern warfare,i contacted rockstar and they said they where aware of a problem and basicly told me the 60gb couldnt deal with the size of the game for some reason,i then rang sony who didnt really give me much feedback and basicly denied the rockstar theory even though rockstar told me that sony was aware of the problem also.

i got a new ps3 back the other day but i am a bit worried about playing gta again incase the same happens as i only have 3months left.

i just wanted to know if any one else have had any problems and can for certain confirm my theory...

 

did gta mess up my ps3?

 

thanks

for the record, it's a serie-numbered problem...

my ps3 60 gb works perfectly with gta4

(the first one broke with a faulty bluray-reader ...the first problem you will have is that the sound falls away)

I had a problem like this some time ago (was within a year of getting the PS3 on release day).

 

I put a game disc in and it was loading for ages with the disc loading sign in the corner yet nothing happened. Same with anything else I tried - Blue Ray, DVD, Games etc.

 

I phoned HMV where I got the PS3 from and they put me in touch with Sony. Explained the problem to them and they said it was down to the fact I played a game when I should have done a system update first. Didn't know that I had to!

 

Anyway they sent me a new PS3 to work and took the broken one away within a day. Excellent service so I hope they do the same for you.
