Really? because I COULD right? pretty sure you're not supposed to shut it off besides using the power button. It was completely frozen
Yeah. You unplug it. Assuming you have a Phat you hit the switch on the back. --- Where in the world's the forgotten? They're lost inside your memory You're dragging on, your heart's been broken as we all go down in history

It happened to me three times in the last 24 hours. i had to restart it by holding on the ps button. What is wrong with the store ?

I was on the store late last night and earlier today and no issues with buying and downloading my purchases. --- PSN ID:gearhead32 I used to care but now I take a pill for that.I apologize for nothing.

TC what model is your PS3?
I had a 80 Gig Phat that gave out on me about 6 months ago. I used to get problems like this all the time. Sometimes the PS3 would just freeze during a game, while on the PS Store, and sometimes when I am not even running anything. It seems as though this is the fate of PHAT Models. They just don't work that well compared to the Slims
Got a Slim a couple months back, and I have had little problems with it so far --- PS3 without Immersion lacks Rumble and PS3 without Rumble lacks Immersion. Finally Sony did the right thing

My PS3 also froze with the under maintenance screen. I just pressed the power button and shut down the system and turned it back up again. --- PSN: romanblade86
