This can either be a laser that needs the power adjusting OR it could be your 360 is starting to show the signs of the dreaded 3rrod. this type of fault can happen when the board is overheating and the lead free solder cracks causing errors on the 360 itself. the only way to repair this if it is this kind of fault is to do something called a reflow of the whole board. we can do this np, we also replace the xclamps, add heat conducting memory pads to the mainboard and we replace the heatsink paste.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

Games Are Freezing


this has happened to me...
i was first getting red ring of death
then i fixed it and never got RROD again
but it started freezing during gameplay, then at dashboard and then at the beginning until it couldnt start at all...
this can be cause by overheating GPU and CPU causing them to bend and lose connection...just like RROD, or it can possibly be that component that reads and plays games, is screwed up...

It is headed for the 3 red lights. Just a matter of time before the GPU solder looses contact.
