    I just got my yesterday early for christmas. 600 bucks with Assasins Creed and I feel like I made a bad choice already as it has frozen up about 4 times in my 3 or 4 hours of playing it.

    My PS3 is just over a year old so warranty is out of the question. It freezes on games 20 min in and sometimes when reset it freezes before it loads the game and the screen gets green checkers all over and becomes unresponsive. I have reset the defaults then tried restoring neither worked. I am interested in fixing it myself I have repaired 360's but im not sure where to start. Please any info is appreciated this is frustrating.

    I am having the same exact problem with the green checkered boxes. My system goes down within 5 minutes though. It will do this just navigating through the xmb. I have restored the system and still the same thing. My system is just over a year old so out of the Sony warranty. I bought mine from Best Buy and purchased the 2 year extended warranty but all they have is the 40gb. I have the 60gb and am not settling for the 40gb. I am not sure if i should send it to Sony for $150 and eat the warranty or wait for the MGS4 bundle, 3 months is a long wait!

Is it new?? Maybe you got one of those editions which were put in kiosks in best buy or stuff. They crashed every 20 minutes and sony said it was "On purpose to keep gamers from playing all day and give other people a chance to play" or sort ....

When I put in a movie or game the Playstation 3 will freeze up or give random snow bars. Is there a way to fix this?


Hello

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.


If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.
