If it's playing for a specific amount of time then that leans towards an overheating issue.

If you've already cleaned the fans out with compressed air, then it might be necessary to remove and reapply thermal paste to the cpu and gpu chips.

Let me know what you've tried so far and we'll go from there.

Hi, I have a Samsung Blue Ray home cinema system. When playing a Blue Ray disk it freezes after about an hour and a half. DVD's seem to play no problem. Have tried a cleaning disk but has not


Hi, if your sure it stops in the same time on any disc then i would assume there is something stopping the laser from moving forward.
If your confident opening it things may be obvious, KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM THE MAINS COMING IN.
The laser runs on two metal bars but all the gears are plastic up to the motor. The motor does'nt spin but turns in small movements as the laser reads in front, sometimes the teeth on the gears get clogged up. Let me know how you get on.

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.

When i put my dvd in it will play for a few min than it will freeze


I'd almost bet it's time for a new dvd player! often a worn laser unit will freeze first on dvds that are burnt then will skip and freeze on scratched originals then (just like mine) will fail on the goos ones. Time for a new one unless you are will to pay more to get the laser unit replaced!
Happy hunting! :)

Ps3 will read normal cd/dvds but freezes on blu-rays after a few moments. I can play any ps3 game from my hdd without issues, so I think it's a blu-ray issue. I can play ps3 blu-ray games for an hour or...


The 405 nm 10 mw blue violet laser gets whats called thermal kinks in the
optical medium .There hard to weed out in batches of KGD (Knowen Good Dies) . the
problem will arise as the laser diode cycles 400-600 times which puts it right in your-living room
when it starts failing. sound like the Laser.
