Freezing while playing games

5 replies 88 views Edited Nov 18, 2012

My PS3 slim freezes while playing COD or Madden, but when I play them on another PS3 they dont, so I know its not the game. Is the laser not reading them correctly and if it is, how do I clean it?

Have you tried deleting the game data and reinstalling it?

Give it a try anyway. If that failes try a factory restore as a last resort. It will restore the console to the settings it rolled out of the factory with.

Maybe it's a bad hard drive. Other than replacing it, there's really not much more you can do. No offense, I know you thought there would be some sort of silver bullet, but there's really only a limited number of "fixes" without having it serviced, or taking the chance on opening it up and fiddling with it's innards.
