Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
It sounds like your ps3 could be overheating, if you turn on your ps3 and are able to play a game anywhere from 1-10 minutes then the audio goes away and eventually it just freezes.. you might have a problem, the same thing happened to me, the best thing to do is send it in if still under warranty!

Sounds like the video board needs to be re-set it is locked into what ever setting it was in. i have seen a few ways to do the power button trick and this seem to work best!!!
follow theses instructions to a "t" and it should work for you.
1. Turn Off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
2. Turn on in back
3. Turn on in front and hold your finger on it 'till it turns off again -
(you get the beep on then the three beeps for reset and it will eventually beep again and turn off)
4. Turn off in back (wait few seconds for it to re-set)
5. Turn on in back
6. Turn on in front hold finger for three beeps
also have you been to the default screen after doing a power button push for three beeps from stand by mode?
As all of these solutions sounds good I can tell you that about 50% of them will be getting to the restore menu and restoring the default settings, however; the other 50% is yet to be figured out at least on our end. Reflowing is not the answer as I have a reflow machine and it will not fix a no video/audio issue. I have had several no video/ No audio and have reflowed the entire board and nothing. Now on the YLOD reflowing in about 60-70% of the cases will work the other 30-40% is component failure and in that case you are almost certainly better off to just get another board.
