Game freezes after 5-10 mins play time

Had the unit for almost a year. This issue just started 2 days ago. After about 5-10 mins of play time game freezes. No over heating, no red lights, no indication that there is a problem. Any suggestions?

Your console is about to break, mines did the same but eventually choked up 3 red lights

If when it freezes it has a kind of checkerboard pattern, then it is what happens before the three red lights of death, try the eraser trick posted by Carl26

Our playstation 3 won't read games but will play regular DVD's and CD's

I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?

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.

Every 5-10 min my dreamcast freezes!

Check if there is something overheating (inside or on the adapter).
The 'almost' mint condition might have blown a fuse or capacitor or something minor.

If you are brave enough, disassemble the console and look for anything out of place.

Good luck!
