Freezing, and screen has weird bright-coloured patterns.

Help! My PS3 just started locking up, and flickering weird patterns in bright colours across the screen. It's almost like it's overheating, but I have it out on the top of the entertainment unit.

    Thanks, I'll try that. If leaving it helps, then I will probably buy one of those auxiallary fans that attach to the PS3 to pull heat out of it.

Try letting it rest, PS3's do not all cool depending on where they are. some have a cooling fan, but others dont. if you let it rest for a day it may stop.

Hi,
Would like to tell you that there is nothing wrong with your PS3, but it's the T.V that is causing the problem.

Unfortuntely, the only thing that will cause a thin line or two is the lcd panel assembly. The cost to replace this would be really high so the best you can do is put up with it as long as you can, then replace the set.

Apologies on the bad news but i must be honest with you. I have seen this with all makes of both lcd and plasma tv's

My ps3 freezes and the screen goes a green colour


Usually this is due to a GPU problem on the motherboard.

Does it always happen during the same time?

Give me lots of details and I can help.
