    ps3 keeps freezing up on assasins creed and vikings & oblivion. My system is on the tv stand would this cause a problem

  • Anonymous May 21, 2008

    My 80g freezes all the time. Froze with oblivion. More so with COD4. Then it died and needed the blueray drive replaced while under warranty. Then I got it back and bought GTAIV, and it freezes TONNES with that game. I've had enough and am sending it back again. Let's see what they do bout it.

If the disc/laser lens are dirty it will cause the games to freeze, or if the system doesn't have proper ventilation it will overheat.

Do you mean like, you were in the middle of a game and it suddendly it freezed? That's normal, as long as it doesn't happen frequently. To try and prevent this situation, try to keep the PS3 in a place where the console has enough space to let the fans blow out all the air. If you do have the fans against a wall or something, then it overheated, and overheating leads to freezing.

Posted on Apr 10, 2009

You need more than help with just ur ps3,ur crazy



Posted on Oct 06, 2008

Always keep th fans clear of any dust that builds up as this causes less air to cool the console down and keep it in a well ventilated area i.e not in a press or unit keep out free.as for the game freezing the odd time is ok but if it keeps happening and it is not overheating im afraid alll you can do is send it back to sony to be repaired,it is still under warranty so you wont have to pay.

Hey guys,
If your playing your Ps3 though a wireless network that might be your problem.

Apparently bluetooth devices on the PS3 (controllers, headsets, playback remotes) operate in the same bandwidth range as some wireless routers ( 2.4Ghz range) as bluetooth devices ( 2.4-2.4835 Range ).

Not sure how wi fi would interfere with the bluetooth device, since the bluetooth is constantly hopping around that particular range. But nonetheless, I wired in my connection, turn the wireless router off, and didn't have have a problem all of last night.

If you quit GAME IN A MANNER OTHER THAN USING THE PS BUTTON YOU CAN DAMAGE THE PS3 SYSTEM IE USING THE BUTTON AT THE REAR OF THE CONSOLE OR PULLING THE POWER CABLE OUT / ELECTRICTY CUTS OUT

CAN YOU FIX IT I DONT KNOW

Try to get it to SONY or jus a reliable Gamestore or even someone you trust who has good tools (screwdrivers)and open it a easy way shown on YOUTUBE that wont affect the warranty. or buy a extra help fan off PLAY they use a USB socket so keep 1 spare.

Ps3 freezing


How is your ventilation for the PS3. Beings the unit is so new, I would look into how well the PS3 is breathing. My friends PS3 gets pretty warm and the air needs to move pretty freely for it to operate efficiently. Just an idea of what could be causing the freezing for you. Hope this helps!!

Ps3 freezing


You are having a heat problem caused by dust build up. You need to get some canned air and blast it out from the front and right side. Just stick the little straw into a bunch of random holes and let it rip. 80-90% of the dust will come out the back and help you out. Also, make sure you do not have it in an enclosed area on an entertainment center shelf. If for some reason the PS3 dies, call up Sony and get it replaced. Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
