My Ps3 freezes during games. shows on Netflix and while loading. goes into shut off mode and go completely out. Have to unplug the back and corrept files to turn off?


It's possible your system may be overheating. Use a temp gague or thermometer to monitor how hot the back of your system gets before it freezes.(By the fan) You might have to replace your fan if it is overheating.

Playstation gets really hot after about 20 mins then freezes and wont load anything


That would indicate that a fan is not working.
As in any computing device, heat is the enemy of the system. The cooler the system runs (to a degree) the better it runs. When the device gets too hot, the processor overheats and it causes a system freeze. You should return/exchange the console where you purchased it. The alternative is opening the device, voiding any warranty, and a risk of breaking the unit.
Admittedly, a fan repair is relatively easy once you get inside the case. Usually, it's just a couple screws and the fan falls out. The fan will probably have a harness connecting it to the motherboard, if not, it just comes down to splicing a couple wires together.
Hope this helps!

Red Ring + Freezing Issue


Most likely cause is the perhaps cold solder points on the chips. This happens after the 360 goes from hot to cold over and over again. Miniature fractures can occur in the solder of the chips therefore causing bad connections. There are a number of ways to go about fixing this like the controversial hot towel trick and the 10 penny fix. Some say its bad, but this is quite effective and similar to the production process anyways. Usually those fixes are used in regards with RROD or 3 rings, but I have solved the issue you are talking about with both and so far so good. Here is a nice video explaining the 10 penny fix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asTDsKLVexA&feature=PlayList&p=FDB6C3569A311E6B&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=9 Hope this helps and gets you back up and on your feet soon. Good Luck.

My ps3 freezes just after the start up.


It's the ps3 it self , what happens its that the way they design the chips it gets over heated and cause the pc board to have disconnected component from the pc board. If you still have warrant ,send it back for repair.
