Yes it is the chips on the motherboard overheating to fix it you need to stop the heat build up and you can use a good repair guide to do this or you can send it in for a fix.

Ps3 60gb freezing


Try this use your vacuum to suck out any dust that is in machine from front and back. Use compressed air (duster used on electronics) and spray the cd area and back area again, vacuum out. If this doesn\'t help then Call Sony PlayStation for replacement of machine.

My ps3 keeps freezing during games


Problem: Your Playstation 3 console is freezing during gameplay. There are usually two problems that would cause your Playstation 3 to freeze during

gameplay. I will start with the most common problem:

1. The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

2. Overheating. This is less common. If your PS3 freezes and you shut it off and back on and it comes on ok, it's probably not overheating. If heat is the problem, it will freeze right away if you turn it back on right away without giving it time to cool off. If it turns on OK with no problem and doesn't immediately freeze up, the laser is your issue. If you turn it back on and it freezes right away, your PS3 may be overheating.

If your PS3 is overheating, the best thing to do is to make sure you do not keep it in an enclosed area. Playstation 3 systems and XBox 360 systems run very hot. You must keep it in the open so it gets as much cool air as possible! You can also upgrade the fan inside of your Playstation 3 with the Whisper Fan which increases cooling. You can also find it at the following website:

Fix PS3 Freezing Error By Sony, Do Or Don't'?


When you do this, you will have to keep in your mind that this isn't a free service .In fact, you'll have to pay Sony lots of money. If you warranty has been expired, you will have to pay $150. Another thing to keep in mind are the waiting times. You'll have to wait for at least 3 weeks, and this could go up easily to 8 weeks of waiting.

My Playstation 3 often freezes up after a short period of use. After that, it refuses to turn back on again, and its light flashes back to red from green whenever I attempt to turn it on. Either that...


did you try to force the pS3 reset mode? press the power button for 08 seconds and wait the system restart...release and wait it reboot...if the problem persists...try to change and install a new sata hdd and restore the ps3 system...see if your ps3 hdd is really ok...test it...Or could be the Ps3 Motherboard hardware problem...called YLOD...does your Ps3 light flashes yellow??

Good Luck!!!
