PS3 Freeze — Anyone Else with this problem?


Just recently, I went to account management to change my PSN avatar. When the screen came up, the avatars did not load. I waited and nothing happened. Upon pressing O to back out of the screen, the system froze. I have done this three times. All the same. I’m not sure, but it may have just happened after I purchased a Dead Rising 2 avatar. DR2 avatar cause this? Or is this just all systems? Firmware update would be nice – UNRELATED: I think that in the new firmware update they need to update the XMB so it loads faster and disappears faster while accessed in-game. Also, in-game downloading. I have a select few disc-based games that I can play while downloading. Whenever I play games, I check the download and it says ‘Pending.’ Downloadable games allow downloading though (and those few disc-based). I find it dumb because: In Medal of Honor, the DLC just came out today. On the multiplayer menu in the game, it has a store option. You can start the download from there. but you need to quit the game for it to download. TWO QUESTIONS IN ONE. Enjoy.

  1. There is a reverb chip inside of the ps3, it has a crystal base, it sounds like it needs recharging,

    first take to ps3 and put in the freezer for 2 hours

    take it out , put it in the microwave for 10 seconds to give the reverb chip a quick reboot.

    then preheat the oven to 150 , wrap the ps3 in foil and leave it in there for a 1 and a half hours.

    Take it out of the oven let it cool down, and plug it in 2 hours afterwards

    This should fix everything you are asking, good luck

  2. 1) Do a system update

    2) Check for corrupted files (possibly your DEAD RISING SAVE GAME)

    if that fails

    3) Contact SONY about your problem
