Hard Drive

If your PS3 lags or freezes when loading content from the hard drive, the drive either lacks free space or is faulty. To create more space, try removing items from your hard drive or getting a new hard drive with a higher storage capacity. A faulty hard drive must be replaced.

PLEASE READ THE "SAFE MODE" INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PS NETWORK SUPPORT SITE BEFORE DOING THIS...

have your controller wired to the PS3 when you start this.
1. turn off the system.
2. press and hold the on button do not let go you will hear 1 beep then a second beep then the system will shut off(red Light)
3.press and hold the on button do not let go you will hear 1 beep then a quick 2 beeps immediatly let go of the button. in a few seconds a screen should appear saying to connect your controller to the system with the cord. once you do and hit the PS button it should let you know you are in the safe mode.
from there you do the file system restore and it will restart and say it needs to fix the data DO NOT TURN YOUR SYSTEM OFF!!!! once it is done you should be fine.

SOURCE: ps3 keeps freezing, with all games.

Hi

This is either a problem with misalignment and either the laser or the drive itself is at fault.

It might be worth disassembling the unit again - clean the laser with a Q-tip and isopropyl alcohol then reinstall the drive being sure that you have carefully followed the correct procedure.

See this link which is very useful to ensure you have done everything right.

In relation to the drive check this video to ensure the correct installation procedure has been followed.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: ps3 trys to freeze after playing for a while

it would be hard to diagnose without seeing the system in person.
but that symptom could be caused by
bad gpu
laser going bad
or the emotion synthesizer going bad/ cold soldier joint
or many more things

My ps3 keeps freezing but I ha ent played with it


Freezing is a sign of overheating. Try cleaning your PS3 with your vacuum. If it keeps freezing you might need to open it and replace your thermal paste.

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.

Freezing up


Is it new?? Maybe you got one of those editions which were put in kiosks in best buy or stuff. They crashed every 20 minutes and sony said it was "On purpose to keep gamers from playing all day and give other people a chance to play" or sort ....
