Sounds like a heat problem to me. You need to get a can of dust-off/PC duster and blow it out the best you can. Only blow from the front or the sides, blowing towards the back. The slots are bigger in the back allowing more dust to escape.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you!!

PS3 SLIM FREEZING AFTER 15-20 MIN OF PLAY OR MOVIES.I PERFORM FILE SYSTEM RESTORE FROM SAFE MODE AND IT SAYS CORRUPT DATA.I RESTORE..AND 15-20 MIN LATER..IT FREEZES AGAIN.


The problem is update 3.30. Whatever it contained, it hurt the systems ability to read from the BD Drive. I suspect you can play downloaded content forever without freezing. If correct, the is currently no fix. I am in the same boat. Our only hope is that Sony will come forward with a fix. Currently, if you call them they will say your system is faulty and you need to send it back to them for a swap.

Is it new?? Maybe you got one of those editions which were put in kiosks in best buy or stuff. They crashed every 20 minutes and sony said it was "On purpose to keep gamers from playing all day and give other people a chance to play" or sort ....
