Hi guys, I have a PS3 with an odd issue that I'm struggling with, the PS3 boots up fine, it'll play videos fine, it'll play music fine, it will even let me go online and either browse the web or visit PSN and download stuff. However, when I try to load a game from the hard drive the screen goes black and just acts like it's frozen and the hdd light stops flashing. I have to hold the power button down until it goes into shutdown, flashing green for a few seconds, then 3 consecutive beeps and then shuts off. Things i've tried are; safe mode - restore file system, rebuild database, restore ps3 system, system update via USB. Pulled harddrive and connected it to windows to format, error check. Anyone got any suggestions as I'm now out of ideas. Thanks, SteelLegend.
