Question about Sony PlayStation 3 (250 GB) Black Console

1 Answer

My PS3 frequently freezes and is unplayable right now. It sometimes will be fine for up to 10 minutes before freezing. When it freezes the screen stops completely with strange green blocks all over it. The sound continues for around 30 seconds but then that stop also and the PS3 light stays green as though still playing even though the screen is frozen and silent. I booted my ps3 in safe mode and did all of the options including the 14 and a half hour full format but still when I played a game it did the same freeze after around 5 minutes. I have tried to play in both HD and single definition. I watched a dvd and this also froze after a few minutes. Is there anything else I could try before I have to fork out for a replacement?

My playstation keeps freezing while im on any game, it works for like 10 minutes and then it will freeze. it also takes a long time to turn off what should i do?


Hello

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:


To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.


If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.

The 405 nm 10 mw blue violet laser gets whats called thermal kinks in the
optical medium .There hard to weed out in batches of KGD (Knowen Good Dies) . the
problem will arise as the laser diode cycles 400-600 times which puts it right in your-living room
when it starts failing. sound like the Laser.

Screen freezing - Not loading


HI, this will occur when there is a serious hard disk error. you can confirm by unplugging the unit for 5 minutes. this will reset the error reporting. once the five minutes are up, simply plug the unit back up and power the unit. you should get an error code or explanation.

Contact Sony for this repair.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

Ps3 all games freeze


Your hard drive is corrupted. The only way you can fix it is to send it back to Sony, and they would just replace it.

I am sorry about your luck

Plays, freezes, green lines, won't come back on


It's a GPU problem. Are you comfortable opening up your PS3 or would you rather pay $150 through Sony?

Let me know.

In the meantime you can check out my PS3 blog for some tips, warnings, etc.
