One fix for freezing during blu-ray movies is the go to video setting find a setting called BD 1080p output 24Hz (HDMI) set it to OFF. The lines on your disk could be a laser drive that need looked at dirty or some misalignment maybe needs a new laser.

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:

Sometimes my ps3 freezes while loading also during gameplay and just in gameplay there are color streaks and glitches occur


Hi there,

This sounds like a problem with the HDD. If you have any save files you wish to back up, use the Backup Utility under the settings menu. Once you've done that, Format the PS3. If you are still experiencing problems you will need to contact Sony. Their number is 1-800-345-7669.

Screen freezes


its broke. take back to store. likely issue with graphic processor overheated one too many times. PS3's are best run in small cramped wooden enclosures that dont allow air in. err no thats not right.... that kills them.

Gameplay is whacky


Sounds like you got back a refurbished unit. If your having graphic problems and lockups, thats a problem with the main board for sure. Call the place that did your warranty exchange and tell them the exchange unit is not working at all and that it constantly freezes on all games and when it doesn't freeze the graphics become blocky on all games, they will probably replace it again. Just tell them it hasn't worked properly at all since getting it.

My ps3 after in hour of playing freezes and won't play


This is a common problem that can be one or two reasons. One is that your PS3 is overheating during gameplay and is shutting down or freezing. If this is the case you should make sure your ps3 is clean of dust and is in a well insulated area. Try investing in an external fan that will keep your system cool during gameplay.

Secondly you may have a problem with the laser reader. If this is the case you will need to have it repaired by sony. You may be covered under a warranty, so please contact sony to find out your options.

You can contact sony by calling the number listed on the back of almost all of your video game booklets.

Happy Gaming and Good luck to you.
