Switch of the console, first by holdin the power button for two seconds then the main power switch at the back. then pull out the power cord. wait for it to cool. dust it gently put it in an open space standing(vertically). when it cools after a few hours, try to turn it on again.

The problem is that my ps3 is overheating what do i do


Sure the PS3 has a large open space that allows good air circulation, and you could also buy a Nyko inter-cooler for the system. It also helps to keep the room cool because the PS3 does throw out some heat.

The ps3 will freeze up when playing a game and wont read disks


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Also sounds like you need to re-set the laser for the drive.

My ps3 is not setting started , i get green and then red light


Your ps3 is probably over heating. Is the ps3 setup vertical or horizontal from what i have gathered over the last two years is place the ps3 horizontal for better air flow keep it out in the open and not in a inclosed space or buy a air cooler i have four ps3's and that's what i do good luck

DMC4 freezing up on my PS3


If your PS3 is only freezing up on that particular game then I would get a replacement.

It also could be because your console is overheating.

Make sure that you have it in an open environment instead of surrounded by things that may block air flow and suffocate the system. I would suggest buying an inter cooler .

The best, in my opinion, is the one made by Nyko.
