The big question here is what can you do when you see your ps3 freezes?
Well there are a few things that you could do.
The first thing you could try doing is sending it back to Sony if
you really want to. Because they are the ones that made it, they will
certainly be able to fix the annoying ps3 freezing, but that certainly
comes with a very high price. You could pay about $150-200 just to
repair the ps3 freezing issue and you might not have your console for
1-2 months! Can you deal with that? Can you really do without Solid
Snake and that massive alien invasion for an entire month?
If the answer to that is no, then there are a few things that you
can try by yourself as far as fixing the Ps3 goes.
First of all you could try searching for loose cables within the
system. This could cause a problem, and this is especially true if there
is a loose cable on the actual hard drive. In some cases it might be
necessary for you to replace the hard drive which would be pretty easy
considering that the Playstation 3 uses a standard SATA hard drive.
Because it is most likely an overheating problem it couldn't hurt to
have a look at the fans. There is one large fan on the bottom of the
console that is vital to it's operation, so make sure that one is
actually working. If it is not, then you should either replace it or put
a cooling pad underneath the Playstation.
As luck would have it (or not), many other people have run into the
Ps3 freeze problem themselves. There are some that have managed to fix
the ps3 freezing problem on their own, and they were nice enough to put
together guidebooks that you can learn how to repair ps3 freezing
problems in http://www.ylod.net/
These guides will cost you some money, but not nearly as much money
as you would be paying to ship the console back to Sony. On top of that,
you won't have to wait 6 weeks for your console to be repaired! These
fixes are usually quick and easy and they work like a charm if you
follow the instructions step by step.
Stop sitting around wondering if your Ps3 will ever work again. The
truth is it could probably be working today!
