Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your new PS3. In regards to the PS3 locking up after a few hours of play this sounds like the system is getting hot. You need to look at where you have your system. A lot of the entertainment centers out there do not provide enough air flow to make sure the system will stay cool. So even though you may have a cooling kick connected to the system it still could be getting hot. So if you have an in closed entertainment center you might what to look at setting on the top to get better air flow. Also carpet is bad too. Now if this your only place to put it you will want to go to your local hardware store and get a wool shelf piece to put the system on. Note if you need to cut down they can normally do this. Also note if you still have trouble you may have already caused damage to the system(also it is possble that you got a bad unit but you will still want to make sure you have a setup to make sure the unit gets properly cooled). So after you get your setup adjusted you may need to get the system exchanged or sent in to Sony for repair.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions on this.

It sounds like the laser is dirty, just buy a laser cleaning kit from your local I.T. store, or from a music store, use it in your playstation and then try again.

Sounds like a burned fuse to me. Do you switch it off when you are not using it? well you can dismantle it then look for the fuse and replace it, but since you are still w/in the warranty period, might as well have it replace from where you bought it. Hope this help.

I am a gaming console repair technician and this sounds to me like there is a bug in the games code. You should inform the creators of the game (EA Sports) of this issue via their forum here:

Ps3 bought in 2006 will not play ps3 games It


May sounds like a silly answer, but, do you have your PS3 hooked up to the internet. If not, there are many updates for the system which you are missing and therefore the new games will not play because of missing system updates. Hope this helps you out.

Loss Of Sond When PS3 Gets Warm


probably the PS3 is overused, that's why it's warm. Shut it off when gets warm, or the least, after 4 - 5 hours of game play. That should help cool down the machines !

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.


I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.
