First try resetting your PS3 by disconnecting all of the cords and holding the power button in until it squawks at you. Hook it back up and install the latest update to the firmware. Also make sure you have everything well ventilated. (Any electronic device that overheats will crash out and high-powered game systems like the PS3 and XBOX 360 are especially prone to overheating.) Fire up a game and see if you get the same result.

If it still won't work for you, go ahead and give Sony's tech support a call. If you're still in warranty, odds are, they'll service or replace your unit.

My ps3 will play for about 20 min then it freezes up. First the in game voices stop and then I get a frozen pic.


This behavior is usually caused by overheating. To troubleshoot it, first, try another less graphic intensive game. Little Big Planet is one example. If it still freezes, make sure that your PS3 is situated in a well-ventilated area and remove any cover on it. Try making your PS3 rest a bit then try it again.

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.
