Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Freezing up and or audio playing with no picture

I've sent my game for repairing two months ago. I'm now having more problems. I can began to play the game for maybe 1 minute and it freezes up, so i then turn off and restart. It then has only audio and a frozen picture. While playing the game the screen looks like a computer has gone crazy with specs and lthen it freezes up again. These three things are happening at different times but back to back.

    I have the same problem with nba live 09 for PS3. The game will load up fine and then will freeze and lock up the PS3 and I can only turn off the game buy unplugging the PS3...My PS3 works fine with all other games, but just not NBA Live 09...I sent the game back to EA games and received a new copy but did the same thing......?????? I don't know what to do. I love NBA Live but this issue is frustrating...I called PS3 and they want to charge me $150 to fix what they don't know is wrong....$150 is just enough to buy an XBOX 360 ya know!!!!!

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

Xbox 360 red light


Repair Xbox 360 - 3 Red Lights 3-red-lights.jpg
James at joystiq fixed his own 360 that was flashing three red lights, which indicates an internal error.
If you have this problem try to fix it yourself before sending the unit in.
1) Remove your hard drive and/or memory units.
2) Run “Initial Setup” under the system blade.
3) Decline inserting HDD or memory unit when prompted.
4) Sync your controller and pop in a game.
It might save your xbox 360 a repair return.
