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

Ps3 freezes at startup screen/ green red dots/lines,


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??

The "NO VIDEO/PIXELATED VIDEO/FROZEN VIDEO" problem is all too common on the PS3. It results from overheating of the RSX and/or CELL processor. let it cool and resume and pray
