Hi nimarsh,

If your PS3 is freezing up then you need to stop the heat build up internally and to do this you will need to get it repaired.

Now you can send it in and they will fix it for you that is the standard method however bear in mind that there will be a repair charge of $150 for the fix which is quite steep!

The other way that you can fix it is by using a good PS3 Repair guide.

Just a quick word of advice though, make sure you check out these reviews of the top guides so you can be sure what they offer.

Kindle fire hd 8'9 freezing and not working


Many programs dont work well on Kindle no matter what they tell you. The free ones are pretty much a waste land I have found. The Kindle is a great tool, dont get me wrong they really intended it for movie watching, an books. It is no iPad that for sure. I dont know how old he is but he would have been better off just purchasing a game system. They market this stuff for everyone an the real market is for a limited group. Some games are nice, but most dont work as advertised. Tetris is a game that does not play well on Kindle. Delete the game if its free as soon as he has problems. Some times the programmer will write back an say well you need to get the paid version. How well I know that one. Some calculators I downloaded for free were mot accurate in scientific mode. How useful is that. He did not get a bad product, it just is mot a gaming system as the Sony an Nintendo type handhelds. Check out some forums to find which games do work with it well. It truly is a wonderful product.

It appears that the laser/lens will need to be replaced. It is a very common problem. You will need to find a repair tech who can solve your problem. MikesPS3repair(dot)com

My playstation3 freezes when i play call of duty black ops. after it freezes the disc will not load up again. no disc will load after it freezes. i uaually have to wait like 12 hours before my system will...


OK the problem is your blue ray disk reader. Unfortunatly this cannot be repaired. You will need to take your console to have the part replaced. Unless you have warrenty. In witch case phone your insurance company.
Any more questions feel free to ask.

No other game freezes? May just be a defective game, take it back to the store you purchased it from and request a swap.
