Game or System freezing!!

I have a PS3 60gb. When I play MIDNIGHT CLUB L.A. it constantly freezes. Even more when I go online. Sometimes it will freeze when trying to find a room for me to join or at times right after joining a room. Freezing may occur when in an online race or just after finishing the race. HELP!!?!!

The "FROZEN VIDEO then PIXELATED VIDEO then NO VIDEO/" triad problem is all too common on the PS3. It results from gradual overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. The unleaded solder used in these machines XBOX360/PS3 often fails. In addition, if the ps3 also shuts down on its again own due to overheating. It is necessary to disassemble the unit and apply AS5 compound and shim the heatsinks to ensure proper contact between the heat sink and the processors

PS3 Randomly Reboots while playing Rainbow Six Vegas


Sounds like you've got a data issue related to the hard drive.

You should use the Restore to Factory Settings option under SYSTEM.

This should address the problem.

Also does the machine feel hot or does it sound loud?

Xbox 360 problem with scratching disks


If your xbox is making that ring around your disc chances are you are playing your xbox standing up, if you lay the xbox down on its side this may fix the problem atleast it did for me. And as for the the midnight club freezing all the time it is still doing this on my xbox, copy the game to hard drive, and it should deffinitly limit the game from freezing, it worked for me.

Freezes at start of game


This is a problem with the games. Check the back of the CDs for scratches. Try to compare them with games that work. If you see a noticeable difference you can buy a CD cleaner from gamestop and remove the scratches from it .

hi there, The scratches on your disks are usually caused by the laser Assembly on the Hitachi dvd-rom. If the console freezes on other games it may be over heating. Please contact Microsoft for warranty support and get the system repair. If you are no longer able to get warranty support please contact me and i can assist you with part numbers, where to order, and required tools. Good luck
