It is freezing because your playstation is to close to the tv and its getting to hot...it is due to overheating you are having this problem ... so try moving it to another spot....you must take care to keep it properly vented....... The system is prone to overheating, particularly if you happened to have bought older stock. One way to deal with this is to stand it vertical, and put a small desk fan behind it.Turn on the fan when you turn on the game. I know it's an annoyance but it is a very simple and effective way to work around the problem. DO NOT use an intercooler fan or any cooling device that gets power from the playstation. It just makes it worse.
when thermal compound fails it gets overheated so you need to look into this too ...replacing the thermal compound on the heat syncs and it should only cost about $5.00 to fix your playstation.
Ok do not worry this may mean two things crached hard drive or a corrupted hard drive all you have to do is turn it on but let the red ligth be on turn it on do not remove your finger from the button until it go's off again turn it on again keep your finger until it makes a sound but still do not remover your finger untill it makes two sounds after eachouther take your finger of fast nou a screen will apear say restore sestem untill your ps3 works again it take 1-4 trys and if nothing happens you must format it.HOPE I WAS USEFULL PLZZ RATE ME AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELS EMAIL ME TO email@example.com I DO PS1,2,3,DVD PLAYERS AND PC sorry for my spelling i am only 13 and i Afrikaans BUT PLZZZ RATE ME.thanks
