You can't.

The problem will get worse and worse over time. It's due to overheating, similar to the xbox problem, contact Sony for repair @

1-800-345-SONY

or if you're brave you can always try to reflow the gpu. I don't recommend it though, it's risky and not for the novice.

The ps3 will freeze up when playing a game and wont read disks


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Also sounds like you need to re-set the laser for the drive.
