Most of the time this is caused by a faulty hard drive. So try a different hard drive and see if that helps. Other then that, I would say your fan isnt entering 2nd or 3rd gear and your unit is overheating. Thanks!!

My ps3 constantly freezes. i cant play a game no longer than 10 to 20 mins. the crossbar works fine, downloaded demo's work, and playing dvd's all work. the only time it will freeze is when playing a game....


Yup its your laser. You need to try wiping it off wih qtip and rubbing alcohol if that doesnt work just replace the laser. Ps3 lasers are the most expensive though due to blu ray.

My ps3 will play for about 20 min then it freezes up. First the in game voices stop and then I get a frozen pic.


This behavior is usually caused by overheating. To troubleshoot it, first, try another less graphic intensive game. Little Big Planet is one example. If it still freezes, make sure that your PS3 is situated in a well-ventilated area and remove any cover on it. Try making your PS3 rest a bit then try it again.

Ps3 freezes a while into a blueray movie or playing games


YOur PS3 might be overheating, make sure that it is somehwere in the open, like on a desk, or at least has room if its in a cabinet. Also make sure that it is not on a rug, or any other heat conducting amterial such as a bed, rug, or even plastic.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.
