Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have a 60 gig ps3 that keeps freezing in the web browser and sony store, it can happen after 2 hours or just 2 minutes, There is no certain sequence that causes this because just yesterday it froze on MGS4 and before that it wouldnt save, but I have not gotten a trouble code yet. Any info would be great.
Firmware 2.40 had a bug that was causing this problem even bricking ps3's my buddys had the same symptoms I tried the same fixes you tried eventually it bricked. Sony will fix it but it sounds like its too late for you. You voided the warranty too bad.

Hello. Freezing is ALWAYS one of 2 problems. Heat or a jammed platter in the hard drive. Always try the solution for heat first as it is the most common.
HEAT: Get a can of compressed air and blow out your system from the front and sides. Most of the dust should come out of the back. This is a VERY common problem and this is the easiest solution.
IF SOLUTION ABOVE DOESN"T WORK, TRY SOLUTION BELOW!
Hard Drive: Get a different hard drive, instasll it into the PS3 and test it. They only cost $30-$150 for up to 120GB if you wanted to upgrade.
I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
