How To Reset A Frozen PS3 SLIM???

37 replies 8809 views Edited Oct 17, 2009
Its been only 2 days and my PS3 Slim already froze. I was just about to load the Lost Planet 2 demo, then the system just froze. EVERYTING was non responsive. I tried holding down the PS button, and nothing happend. Then i tried holding down the power button on the Slim, and still, nothing happend. So i ended up having to unplugg the system, then plug it in again just to power it off. Anyone know any other ways to reset a frozen Slim ps3??? Should i sent it back for a replacement since this happend only after 2 days?

okay, do this. Keep your power btton pressed down for atleast 20 secondsbare minumum. it will force it to shutdown. *it might not work, but i know it works on my 60gb

i tried it when it froze on a update (yes, my heart stopped for a few sec), luckily, it was before i sterted to install it. i was about to press x to install

Kudos are welcome

Well thats the thing, i dont want to unplug the system everytime it freezes. I was hoping there was another way to shut the system down. Sony really messed up taking out that power switch!

even new computers freeze.

 

all 3 of my PS3's and the other 2 consoles i own have frozen on me at least once.

 

 

what kind of statement is that?

 

man-made technology is almost always never perfect. whats makes you part of the latter?

Cognitive Dissonance - The ability to understand multiple viewpoints even if they conflict with one another - and still use critical thinking, logical thought, and common sense to come to the realization that only ONE is the correct one and the others are wrong.

Just hold the power button down it will force it to shut off, it may take 10 seconds or 30 seconds.
