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.

My playstation3 freezes when i play call of duty black ops. after it freezes the disc will not load up again. no disc will load after it freezes. i uaually have to wait like 12 hours before my system will...


OK the problem is your blue ray disk reader. Unfortunatly this cannot be repaired. You will need to take your console to have the part replaced. Unless you have warrenty. In witch case phone your insurance company.
Any more questions feel free to ask.

My playstation just freezes on start up screen and


hello,
"When the PS3 system freezes and wont play, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."
