Does this freeze up occur around the time the fan kicks on? I've seen several other contributors to FIXYA mention this as a "heat sink" issue. I guess the HD is getting over-heated & melting a soldered connection. This is definitely a problem that a tech should look at. Hopefully your console is still under warranty. If not, PSR has very decent rates for "out-of-warranty" work. You can contact them at www.psr1.com. Hope this helped.

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.

I was at my brothers house last night playing Madden NFL 2009 and the game stopped working, we tried all the games he had, none would work. DVD movies worked, music cd's worked, but games no. So what I did is came home and searched the net until I found a solution. Here is a video clip of that solution from youtube.

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.


You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem
