    PS3 black screen freeze

    I play fifa 12, sometimes when quit game, directly ingame for example hold ps button or just click ps button, then quite game. My television screen goes black, not pitch black. More of a grey black. and my ps3 is running, sounds fine but I can't do anything. and I can't even click the off or on button on my ps3 button. Nothing happens. I found the only way to turn it off is by removing the electricity cable.
    Summary: When I quit game(only fifa so far) my screen goes black, I can't turn my ps3 off, in anyway except removing the electricity cable.
    I'm worried about that will have some negative effect on my ps3. Anyone knows if this is wrong, or how to solve it?


    now when I think about it I don't think I've tried restarting my television.

    can't you just hold the power button..

    i don't think disconnecting it directly from the power source is good for it.
    It's just a flesh wound.

    Its probably the A/V cable on the ps3, try moving it a bit. Same thing has been happening to me. I think the A/V cable sucks, I need a damn HDTV.

    If it isn't that though, hold down the power button on the console. Feels like forever, but it Takes like 30 seconds to shut off.

    Pulling the plug is VERY dangerous to your poor PS3.

    Is your ps3 old? My old one did that when I quit playback from watching movies. I had to turn it off and start the ps3 back up again.

    I'm actually quite interested to hear a possible cause for this as well. I have a 1 year old 160GB slim that has had the same issue. It seems fairly random but, the screen freezes right in the middle of a game. The power button is unresponsive as well as the controller. The lights on the front do nothing (i.e. no blinking/activity). It's on a shelf but totally open to the air with plenty of space around it and I feel it when this ^ happens; it never feels overly hot. Honestly, my DVR runs a lot hotter than the PS3.

    I'd say this happens to me once for every game I play on average (maybe 1 every 30 hours of gameplay).
