My ps3 keeps freezing during games


Problem: Your Playstation 3 console is freezing during gameplay. There are usually two problems that would cause your Playstation 3 to freeze during

gameplay. I will start with the most common problem:

1. The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

2. Overheating. This is less common. If your PS3 freezes and you shut it off and back on and it comes on ok, it's probably not overheating. If heat is the problem, it will freeze right away if you turn it back on right away without giving it time to cool off. If it turns on OK with no problem and doesn't immediately freeze up, the laser is your issue. If you turn it back on and it freezes right away, your PS3 may be overheating.

If your PS3 is overheating, the best thing to do is to make sure you do not keep it in an enclosed area. Playstation 3 systems and XBox 360 systems run very hot. You must keep it in the open so it gets as much cool air as possible! You can also upgrade the fan inside of your Playstation 3 with the Whisper Fan which increases cooling. You can also find it at the following website:

The GPU or CPU solder joints are causing this. You already have the band-aid fix on it. The only proper way to fix these is to have the GPU and CPU reflowed.

Not using a heatgun or throwing it in a oven like you see on the internet. A reflow station is the only way to fix the problem for good.

Games and demos would freeze after about 10-30 min (or sometimes in less time) of gameplay. Now the Xbox 360 turns on but nothing but a blank tv screen and everybody's favorite red ring of death. What...


Go on xbox.com, and it is one of the first FAQ's. It will direct you to fill out your info and MS will send you an empty box and a UPS label. Follow their directions, and you should have a new box in a couple of weeks for free.

360 Freezes during gameplay


try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure
