Alright guys here is my issue. My ps3 is freezing every once and awhile still mostly during Red Dead Redemption. I can sometimes play for hours without any issues. Also Call of duty modern warfare 2 freezes when ever I click multiplayer. My ps3 then freezes I have to then eject the disk then it reboots to the main ps3 menu (takes around 1-2mins)
I replaced my blu ray lens within the last week because it gave out. The seller sent me a faulty item I sent it back I got a new one. Immediately it worked but it ended up freezing sometimes and gave me 3 red beeps. I then popped it open moved stuff around and wallah it worked for a day... I contacted the seller for another replacement.
]Known issues so far:
-Freezes After awhile in Red Dead Redemption.(Freezes quicker in single player than online)
-I believe my Drive is making rubbing noises and sounds like its spinning weird.
-CODM2 will not work at all
-Download content shuts ps3 off after an hr or 2 *sometimes*
Does your console have backwards compatibility? If not I personally would not even mess with a laser replacement, as the issue you are having sounds very common. If it is a BC console then I would check in some of the repair threads.
It is a 60gb with backwards compability I have already replaced the lens. I also never used custom firmware I just am looking for help with my ps3 for now. Once its fixed then I will do some firmware updates.
Ran Red dead redemption today. It started out terrible froze every time i went too fast through the game on my horse. Then I played again it ran smooth for 2+ hours. Call of Duty still stuck on the black screen.
Huge issue now I tried to run my demo of killzone 3 it worked all morning now it just makes screen freeze black after the playstation motion controller info pages. I can not do anything. I tried with another demo same issue.
Notes: Thinking with the cd games its the disk spinner? I've researched this stuff so much. If you guys need videos I can upload some with my phone quality will suck tho.
