Ps3 freezes and weird colors cover the screen

Awhile ago my ps3 was acting up. i would be playing cod4 and during the game it would freeze. i got it checked out and they said they fixed it. played a little bit more and it froze in the middle of playing cod4. and i would turn it off and on, and on the start up menue it would freeze and the screen would turn all black and grey. they think its because its the TV settings but i don't know how to fix that either. please help

Game Freezing


Make sure the console is out in the open. It needs to vent. Don't place it in a confined area. Make sure any vents on the console itself are not blocked or covered with dust. Sounds like it is overheating.

FREEZES AFTER SHORT TIME OF PLAY


Freezing is due to heat issues and/or scratched discs. Mostly heat. I have seen MANY PS3 mother boards that have not had enough heatsink paste applied to the CPU or GPU by Sony to disperse the heat evenly. Also another common problem is dust build up. No matter how clean you think the inside is, there is always dust build up. The easist way to clean it is to get a can of compressed air and stick the straw into the front and side holes and let it rip. It should blow 70-80% of the dust build up out the back of the PS3. You will may even see a cloud come out as I have so many times.

Now for the COD4 online problems....the company that made the game and supports the online play (Infinity Ward) has cut back the number of servers used to support the online game play since the traffic has slowed down. Unfortuantly, I think they scaled back too much. I sold my copy of this game because it was too hard to get into a lobby and stay there for more then 3 min.

I hope this helps you both out. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Freezing


for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
