Ok, so for about 2 weeks now my ps3 has been having extreme freezing and reading problems. It all started on MW3. I was playing then after the game was over the scoreboard was showing the scores before returning to the lobby it just froze and that's where it started. After the about 2 games it does that now, EVERY time. It's not the normal freeze either,the only way to turn off the system (besides unplugging it) was to eject the disc and then it reboots.
Also since this has started, when playing Call of Duty: Black Ops zombies, my guns would be invisible every now and then and just like MW3, it would freeze before a loading screen every time after 1 or 2 games.
Not only is this doing it on just Call of Dutys, but you put in Dead Isalnd and after 30 minutes of playing, the same freeze would happen. Also on Uncharted 3 online, after I would finish a game, it would freeze on the scoreboard or even sometimes in the lobby.
I have been through so MANY troubleshooting ideas and nothing has helped. I don't want to throw a lot of money into when I could just go buy a new ps3.
These are the troubleshooting things I have done:
*Put a lens/eye cleaning disc into the disc drive (made for ps3)
*Restored the whole ps3 and started from scratch
*Did the safe mode trick and It said my hard drive was corrupt but I tried safe mode on a friends ps3 and his said this too and he barely ever uses his ps3.
*Took apart the whole ps3, cleaned the fan and cooling unit
The only thing I could think it is, is the disc drive and it's having a reading error? Or maybe the hardrive since it said corrupt?
I have looked all over the Internet and nobody has had the same freezing problem as I do.
Please help! I would truly appreciate it! I want to be able to play disc games again!
