I have this problem with my mw2 disc or possibly my ps3, this is what happens every time I put in my mw2 disc and load it, the game logo comes up, but then the game screen goes blank and suddenly it goes back to my ps3 home menu. If I log out of PSN (play station network) and go into mw2 the game loads perfectly I can play campaign spec ops but if I go to multiplayer --->online then it says you need to sign in, when I do then the same problem occurs, blank screen and then it loads me back to the ps3 menu. I am becoming very frustrated with this problem and have searched the internet for solutions but nothing has been found. I need your help, If you know how to solve this problem please comment!!!
I have been having this problem also, but.. I just found a solution.
simply if you have a Torrent Program (BitTorrent, uTorrent, BitComet ect...)
just exit the program. MAKE SURE ITS COMPLETELY CLOSED AND NOT JUST HIDING IN THE TOOLBAR.
and your problem should be solved.
im sorry if this dosnt help some but it helped me
So I started having this problem a week ago and could'nt figure out why. I tried playing COD4 online and as soon as it reached the COD online menu the screen would turn black and return to the mein menu (XBAR).
I thought my disc was scratched but then I tried MW2 and it did the same thing as soon as the game loaded.
So I tried serveral things (including holding power to access secret menu) but none of that worked.
Then I found this forum and read about how some people deleted utorrent from their computer to fix the issue. I immediately remembered that my utorrent app on my computer upgraded to the latest version around the same time the problem started.
So I walked over to my computer, turned off uTorrent (by righ clicking and exiting) and tried playing COD4 again and WHAM!, worked like a charm again.
So please give this a try if you are experiencing the same problems and have uTorrent installed (or any other programs that you may have recently installed or upgraded). In my case I didn't have to delete uTorrent, just exit out of it.
We have had this problem to, same thing, ok off line but as soon as we logged on it goes to the menu again, after reading that the game wotks offline I figured that the game and the ps3 is ok, it must be the account or the connection, made new acounts tried differant discs and so on. The last thing was the connection, disconnected the router and connected the ps3 directly to our mode. Bang there it was, online and all. Reset the router, took the wizard shit and set it up again, connected the ps3 to the router and the router back in modem, work fine. This isnt a solution maybe, but it solved out problem, and yes it all started around a week or so ago, it came and it went and in the end it was off, but hey mere back, sorry for the typo, im from norway :-)
Okay, guys this apparently happens when you join a lobby with someone that modded the room, that person than hacks into your system so MW2 won't work and every other game will work. That's why if your offline the game works perfectly, i'm not sure about this but I think that the game will start if you use it on another PSN account or after doing a full FORMAT. I will try both and get back to you guys
Guys I found a fix first disable media sever connection , then go to your internet setting and type in your ip address manually and download the patch also if you have a computer on at the time turn It off !
Same thing happening to me, my disk is fine. I have reformatted the hard drive, tried multiple accounts. It's not my game or the PS3. There is a problem on Activisions end and now we can't play MW2. It's odd as it will load if I am signed out, as soon as I click multiplayer it goes to sign me in and then resets back to the main PS3 menu.
I've noticed this only happens when you update the game with the patch. But sadly you need the patch to play online so you can't play online :( my guess is the latest patch for MW2 is having a conflict with the latest firmware update for PS3. But I could be wrong.
But it's not your PS3 or MW2 disk so don't worry, now all we can do is hope Activision fix this mess.
To actually play the game theres a few steps to do...
1, Go to the playstation 'secret menu'
2, Do steps 2,3,4,5
3, Reset your modem by putting a pencil into a small spot in the back of the modem
4, If theres a laptop beside you turn it off (tried with laptop on didnt work)
5, play the game:D
(theese steps worked for me but you have to do it everytime you play ps3 and dont go to the ps3 home menu if your not going to turn your ps3 off because youll have to do the same)
