Ps3 crashing, Hey my ps3 has started to randomly crash on me, firstly my screen will start to flick different colours during a game( almost as if my hdmi cable is on the blink) then it just freezes, iv noticed my ps3 has became increasing warm of late and when i moved into a more ventilated position this did not seem to dull the heat! Im not sure if its my laser, my fan, or even Graphics card that is knackered! Any hel would be greatly appreciated. Regards Fraser

It sounds like you hard drive is starting to crash. Try your HD in a different PS3 and see if it does the same thing. The HD in a PS3 is the same thing that is in a laptop computer and they go bad just like the laptops do.

If you have your PS3 in a cabinet it could be overheating. My was crashing when I first bought it and it seamed to be getting pretty hot. We took it out of the cabinet and it works fine. They do sell an after market fan that lowers te temperature on mine.

I'm not sure this is your problem but you can check it out.
