    PS3 freezing and not reading games

    Hello everyone!

    First of all, I'm new to this forum! so one big hi!
    Also, I guess that all the babies fail on their first steps huh? I just posted this thread on the PS4 forum xD stupid me

    Anyways...to the HALP TIME!

    I've had my PS3 for almost 2 years, for the first year it used to read games and play them like a charm. Uncharted 3 worked fantastic and games didn't stuck on loading screen.

    But, before almost a year, after few hardware updates, my PS3 started to freeze while loading games, Uncharted 3 always stucked on the spinning ring screen while trying to play multiplayer, BFBC2 had some freezes too. BFBC2 works fine now, Uncharted 3 sometimes works for like a week and then it doesn't work for months...hooray.

    Before a month or two, I've updated Injustice Gods Among Us that used to work perfectly fine to 1.08 and since then, I can never go past the main loading screen. It's freezing in there. Uncharted 3 doesn't work too.

    All my other games like TLoU and KZ3 works fine.

    I think that my laser lens are faulty. Should I replace them? any tips for fixing that?
    I tried to delete and install the games date hundreds of times! It never helped.

    Thank you all, and have a great day.

    You should contact Sony and ask them how much they charge to repair it. I think it's better Sony fix it than some third party.

    By the way, welcome to PSU!

    The official importer of Sony here in Israel is terrible, the're lazy as f*ck, their customer service is terrible and they'll never really help you when you need them. :C
    Thanks, Wolf!
