I start to play a ps3 game o my ps3 console and its turn off by itself...I'm only be able to play ps2 games without the console turns off. Even with downloaded ps3 games the console turns off. I changed...

PS3 keep turns off when playing games is not a new problem. But don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself. Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved many PS3 problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !

Not loading games , ok with normal cds

Try resetting or restoring your system. WARNING: This will likely erase all of your saved games, demos, & etc. If you choose to do a restore then shut off your PS3, unplug it for a minute or 2, put the plug back in, hold down the power to you hear it beep 4 times: 1,1, 2 beeps, then let off the power button. You should get a screen that gives you options of restoring your console and etc. From there you can make the choice you desire. Sometimes it takes several tries of power-cycling your console to get it to do the proper beeps and then go to the screen with the options.

Controllers will not turn on ps3 and it shuts off

I'd back up my game saves, if possible, and then perform a full system restore.

Let me know if you're able to do that, if not I'll suggest another method for fixing.

My screen goes pixelated for a few seconds while playing games then returns to normal this happens quite regually

Do not turn off your ps3 from backswitch anymore because this is happening because you have done it already it means your HDD is corrupted and if you do happen to turn it off the wrong way your HDD is done JUST A WARNING!
