ps3 turning itself off can be a power problem try unplugging and replugging all ps3 power cords and extension cord. as for the freezing it could be many things such as certain games fallout series black ops could also be corrupted save data (often gotten from turning console off while saving) make sure you are not getting a yellow light on your ps3 when it turns itself off (the new yellow light of death for ps3 if this does occur you need to get console fixed)

I want to just make it clear to you, that you can repair the following problems at home with a good repair guide. There is no technical knowledge needed you simply do what you see on the step by step videos or the paper guide.

The best thing is to get and keep your PS3 guide for life so if something goes wrong in the future you can just review your guide and fix it.

Yes this is the YLOD the (Yellow light of death) it happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and you will need to fix this by stopping the heat build up, you can sned it in and they will fix it for you for $130.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good PS3 Repair guide in under an hour!

PS3 Yellow light


There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.
