PS3 keeps freezing when I am playing games

[ Edited ]
15 Replies 65,434 Views edited 26-01-2012

Hi I am beggining to find that I am having to restart my ps3 more and more due to the freezing of games. They have been bought from brand new and have no scratches. my ps3 is a 250 gb slim and is connected to the net via wifi. I have a eye camera attached . the games I have been playing are LBP and heavy rain. I am on version 3.15 of firm ware. It is within its warranty and I was wondering if I should get a replacement? If so would I lose all of my downloads?

in your shoes, I would (get a replacement)

 

as long as you set up your same account on the new one, you will be able to re-download everything :)

make sure you 

a) sync your trophies

b) backup your game saves

c) deactivate your account

 

before swapping it.

 

as you have a slim, you shouldn't be being affected by the current 50F problem, so you shouldn't need to wait :)

It's not exactly a problem with your ps3! Sony was stupid when making these things because they tried to put so much power into a little box. Where they screwed up is there is JACK SH*& for system cache and the pipelines to the processor are to narrow and cannot transfer as much data as the software is calling for from the HD, Cache, RAM, and the lovely 1X read speed the blue ray drive has. Like I said man not exactly your systems fault, It’s the makers!

Is it just FIFA 12?  try deleting your game data if so

Alrite. Ive been having the same exact issue, and its really been pissin me off! This was my solution, however. Go to your display settings on your system and manually disable your 1080i and 1080p resolution settings. It sucks that you cant use it, but it worked for me.

Hi there,

 

My ps3 keeps on crashing once i put the game in. It reads the game fine but when it comes to loading, a black screen just appears. The playstation just crashes you can't evan hold the PS button down it just totally crashes. Would formatting  the 320gb hard drive fix it?

                                                   ANY IDEAS please

I have a 320 Gb ps3 and tried formatting it last night however be warned it took about 18hrs and didnt cure my problem which sounds very similar to all the others. Hence why im reading this.
