Ps3 froze while updating
Possible fixes These are completely unconfirmed, and only suggestions from community members.
Hey Cookie Monster, been racking my brains and surfing the net, finally found the solution as I had the same issue.
Hello, I purchased 'The Wolf Among Us' yesterday with the season pass, since then I have encountered endless freezing on the loading screens between gameplay, I have had it go to the point where my playstation no longer responds to any commands and has to be switched off via the wall.
To be quite honest if I had thought to come on here first and noticed everyone else having freezing issues i probably would not have purchased it but sadly i didnt and bought the game on the fly.
Console: PS3 flat.https://vicinito.com/posts/in-steps-how-to-take-care-of-your-playstation-3/7707My PS3 looks exactly same as in the above link.
my ps3 keeps freezing when i play black ops 2 multiplayer and zombies i tried to connect the ps3 through ethernet and it still freezed i played other games such as mw2 and uncharted 2 for hours and it didn't freeze at all help please!!
Everything works fine on mine but games and movies . my ps3 turns on but then it says correct hard disk is not on or something, but it is. I tried to do what you posted on here but it just said that the hard drive is not in the ps3. My sons suddenly came up with hardware corrupt tried restarting kept getting to 19 % then stopping,followed the advice above by holding the start button down till it double beeps and followed instructions.
Eventually after trying first 3 instructions had to restore data but you lose everything which you have on there so not very happy boy but ps3 is working again, hope this helps !!
Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (power light is red).It happened the day after I did the newest update . When I did the update it said something may not work anymore but I did t think it had anything to do with me . :) but lost all my contacts:( be rite newayz Allow the machine plenty of time to load, sometimes it will take a while and pause at a certain percentage.Let me k ow if anyone else has the update problem . Leave it to continue, obviously if it stops at your 19% and hasn't changed or gone further after an hour than yes there is a problem. Still have issues then email again, and will try help.hi, I done everything you said and it seemed to work, it said "your system was not turned off properly, shut down by selecting blah blah blah" I clicked ok which took me to my menu where it popped up saying "system needs to be updated".I thought ok ill do that later and turned it off properly.
