SOURCE: ps3 freezing and wont load after it freezes

If you press the PS button does it bring up the XMB? If it does that means your bluray laser is dying. They are about $70 on ebay and you can replace them using the guide here: http://progamer.cc/blog/ps3-laser-kem-400a/how-to-replace-a-ps3-bluray-lens-guide.html/ another option is to send to Sony and for $150 (if it's out of warranty) they will replace it.

Freezing and not reading


Sounds like your System has become corrupted.

Have you already tried the System Restore function?

Ps3 wont load or play any games


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
