Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
And it will blink while the the game freeze and show green and red lines on the screen
If the power indicator is flashing red and green alternately.
The interior of the system has become hot. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location or whether the vents are blocked. If you use the system in this condition it will cause it to stop working. Turn the system off and leave it off until it cools down. After the ps3 cools down, turn it on again.

This is a GPU chip problem, it has a bad connection to the motherboard, that can cause YLOD, no picture, freezing, pixilation, no hard drive activity, no synchronization with the controller through the USB cable , colors get missed up , see lines and different forms of pixels on the screen then it freezes, all these symptoms indicate a bad connection between the GPU chip and the motherboard, there is only one real solution , Reballing the GPU chip , PS3 GPU chip is a very sensitive chip due to the fact that it has a built in memory chips so you need a very reputable place to do that procedure for your console , the photo story you see is an example of the reason and the solution and the link is for the place to fix it for you and give you a one year warranty on the repair.

Turn off the PS3 with the switch on the back, then turn back on. wait till the light is solid red then hold your finger on the start button for abount 10 seconds until you hear it beep twice.
It will then ask you to connect a controller via the usb cable and press the PS button. Once you do this it will bring up the reset menu.
Unfortunately the only way I found that solves this is a full system restore that wipes the hard drive completely.
You do however retain and data saved online such as COD stats etc and playstation store purchases with your PSN.
Hope this helps??

Hrm, is it well ventilated? Is it in an enclosed space? Try putting it out in the open so all the vents can properly breath. If that still fails to work you may have to get it serviced. You can contact sony at:
Hope this helps. Also be sure to rate if it did or not.
