Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

This thing is stupid it hates me.

My friends ps3 will turn on and will stay on for about 20 mins before it completely freezes, well the video atleast. The sound will keep going but that is pretty much it. And I have to turn the stupid thing off in the back for it to stop doing it. But when I try to turn it back on it boots up but I get nothing, no video, no sound. I can't play any of the ps3 games because it doesn't register them, but it will play movies and music, but it will freeze once again. The controllers won't turn it on anymore either. We were playing Soul Calibur when it happened and it wasn't bad at first. But in about a week it turned into the mess it is at now. We have never dropped it, and we checked all the cables and they are fine. Nothing rattles when we pick it up either it sounds all okay inside. It was confined in a space between a shelf and the dvd player and I could just barely get my hand inbetween the two...So I started thinking over heating was the issue. The cables were never yanked out from the back, it never had a powersurge go through it and nothing was ever spilt on it. Even tried reformatting it to see if that would work, and it froze. It's not even a year old.
