ps3 system is lags a lot

15 replies 262 views Edited Jan 23, 2013
So i've been having this system for about two years now. Recently it started becoming really slow than it use to be. Normally when I would start it up everything came normal and quick as it should but now for some reason it take a while for all the icons to load. Also takes a long time to sign into the network. For example i'm signed in maybe 2 minutes later then I click account management and it takes a couple seconds to load up the other icons. Even today I was playing black ops 2 it took several.minutes to get the home screen and when I tried going into multiplayer it froze? Can anyone help me out? Is it time to buy a new ps3?

Does the hard disk light (orange) stay solidly lit during this lag?

And have you checked your internet connection?

The HDD Light is at the front of the unit. It is normal to flicker from time to time, but if the orange light stays fully and solidly lit during the lag, it may not be normal.

 

Or, it might also be a loose connection. Try taking your HDD out, then place it back in.

If its freezing in BLOPS2 then its probably BLOPS2.  I don't have a lot of stuff on my HDD and BLOPS2 lags and freezes up my PS3.

ps3 wont let me sign in

Jan 25, 2013

The ps3 keeps kicking me off the network and blackops2 servers. I checked my internet connection and it succedes but the ps3 network fails. I checked status on playstation website and it says its connected. It will either sign me in and wont let me get a game and keeps searching for the host or wont let me sign in. This all started randomly this morning. It started off fine and now all of a sudden its causing me all these problems. I tried the power cycle for ps and my router but still no playstation network connection. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP

  1. Go to Game Icon on XMB, and go to Data Folder
  2. Find the Game Data, hit Triangle, then choose delete (you will not lose save games)
  3. Re-launch / re-install game / data / update
  4. Re-download and DLC content from the PSN Store
 
PSN Downloaded Game
  1. Go to Game Icon on XMB, scroll to the game with issue
  2. Hit Triangle, then choose delete (you will not lose save games)
  3. Re-download Game and any DLC from PSN Store.
