Why every time I enter Grand Theft Auto 5 on my PS3, It enters a black screen then freezes there?

  1. Every Time I enter GTA 5, it enters a black screen & just freezes there. I've tried many different steps that I looked up online & none of them worked. The game only started once before & that was the last time I seen it start properly.

  2. I'm having the same problem. I still am confused as to what you mean "Updating Software music". I start gta after deleting the files and it just freezes and doesn't let me update it, and when I press Triangle on the game and check for update there is no music period. I don't know what you mean sorry.

  4. Wait for the music in the background to stop before you press OK on the update then it should work, it's a weird glitch and I'm not sure why they haven't fixed it yet.

  6. If your TV is still on, then maybe you should check the wiring connected from TV to your ps3. I used to got the same problem too. The most important thing is to check your HDMI cable connected to the 2 device together. Make sure your HDMI cable is connected firmly at the socket of both device. It might be because the HDMI cable is connected loosely at the socket that's why your TV can't display ps3 screening. If this still can't work then change the other way round of your HDMI cable connect it again to the socket vice versa just now.
