Try to do a firmware update. often issues happen with systems that all the console needs is a firmware update.

if that dont work do a system recovery. which will set it back to factory settings

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.

Bluray freeze


Had the same issue. Next It will start doing the same thing with your PS3 games. Your blue-ray/lazer is going out it will quit working soon. Alot of PS3 have bad lazers in them. I replaced mine works great now.
