My ps3 starts up, freezes, picture messes up, wont start back up

My ps3 starts up and then immediately freezes and the screen pixelates in random odd patterns and colors. Then my screen goes blank. I have to manually shut off the system and then it won't start up for a few hours. Any help?

Try getting the new 3.01 firmware, since 3.0 had some freezing issues with some games, ..
put the consol in a well ventillated palce, put a regular standing fan near it or buy a usb powered fan to keep it cool

You need to use a vacuum and suck the back out or blow it out with air . While power is off on PS3 turn power on holding down the eject button it will blow it self out .

I'm noticed white spots on the screen and from the past two days its getting worse. kindly suggest me and give me step to step cleaning process if i can do it myself.


check if the white spots are well defined square pixels on the screen. If they are then you may have pixel failure.

  • After turning on the projector, press "+" and "-" buttons on the control panel simultaneously and release the buttons when screen goes blank.
  • Press "+" and "-" buttons again to exit the diagnostic mode.
  • While in Self-diagnostic mode, the screen will run a seven-color-cycle test as following: "Red--> Green--> Blue--> White--> Watchet Blue--> Dark Green--> Yellow." Ensure that the colors of the test pattern are correct.

  • If you believe it's dirt then disconnect from the power and undo the screws underneath the unit. lift the cover over the front of the machine and carefully remove the pcb to get at the optics. don't touch and glass bits with your bare fingers. clean the optics bits as necessary with a camera dust blower bellows. best of luck.

    SCREEN FREEZES ON MY SAMSUNG DLP


    Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,picture will freeze,color distortion or white dots on screens.I couldn't find the Dmd by itself but found it with the complete light engine http://www.discount-merchant.com/SAMSUNG-BP41-00119E-p/1171034.htm?Click=48173 Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!
