Does your console crash about the time the fan kicks on? This is most likely a "heat sink" issue! If this is the case, it's going to need to be sent in for service. No matter what you do, it's just going to keep crashing. When this happened to me, I sent it in to PSR repairs ( www.psr1.com ) They said my repairs exceded the value of the unit... Now Sony is replacing it. Granted, I was still under the extended WalMart warranty, but it goes to show the seriousness of your issue.
Sorry to be the barer of bad news, bro. But your console really needs to get to a shop.

p.s. PSR does both warranty & out of warranty work.

My playstation 3, which i bought this christmas, new, is crashing alot. Alot more every day. we play call of duty black ops but it does it on a couple other games as well


Usually heat or bad sectors/ corrupt sectors on the hard drive will cause this issue.

I'd recommend getting two cans of compressed air, taking it outside and clearing out the dust, then when you play cod run a mini fan directly onto the unit.

COD runs heavy on the graphics hence it happening more with that game than others ;)

Call of duty keeps crashing and goes straight to the lobby


One thing you can do is check your connection on your PS3. What i would do is i would check if i can go on the internet (WWW) and see if that works then i know its not the connection. After that i would take my ps3 and totly turn it of for about 10 minutes, then put in a PS3 Game that doesn't work online and see if i can get on. If that doesn't work then you need! to call the PS3 company and tell them whats going down and tell them that you need them to fix it A Sap

Playstation 3 keeps crashing


two problems. 1) not reading games or movies is due to a bad laser. It needs to be replaced depending on the model it will take a kes-400aaa(60,80gb and some 40gb) or kes-410a all newer ps3's use this laser. 2) Crashing online can be due to the system over heating. Make sure the system is horizontal never stand them up verticle this causes serious cooling issues. Also these units do get filled with dust and animal hair which cloags the vents. I have noticed that the ps3 runs much hotter when a wireless internet connection.

MY ps3


If you have your PS3 in a cabinet it could be overheating. My was crashing when I first bought it and it seamed to be getting pretty hot. We took it out of the cabinet and it works fine. They do sell an after market fan that lowers te temperature on mine.

I'm not sure this is your problem but you can check it out.
