Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I need help my ps3 is like freezing
If the disc/laser lens are dirty it will cause the games to freeze, or if the system doesn't have proper ventilation it will overheat.

Do you mean like, you were in the middle of a game and it suddendly it freezed? That's normal, as long as it doesn't happen frequently. To try and prevent this situation, try to keep the PS3 in a place where the console has enough space to let the fans blow out all the air. If you do have the fans against a wall or something, then it overheated, and overheating leads to freezing.

Always keep th fans clear of any dust that builds up as this causes less air to cool the console down and keep it in a well ventilated area i.e not in a press or unit keep out free.as for the game freezing the odd time is ok but if it keeps happening and it is not overheating im afraid alll you can do is send it back to sony to be repaired,it is still under warranty so you wont have to pay.

If your playing your Ps3 though a wireless network that might be your problem.
Apparently bluetooth devices on the PS3 (controllers, headsets, playback remotes) operate in the same bandwidth range as some wireless routers ( 2.4Ghz range) as bluetooth devices ( 2.4-2.4835 Range ).
Not sure how wi fi would interfere with the bluetooth device, since the bluetooth is constantly hopping around that particular range. But nonetheless, I wired in my connection, turn the wireless router off, and didn't have have a problem all of last night.

If you quit GAME IN A MANNER OTHER THAN USING THE PS BUTTON YOU CAN DAMAGE THE PS3 SYSTEM IE USING THE BUTTON AT THE REAR OF THE CONSOLE OR PULLING THE POWER CABLE OUT / ELECTRICTY CUTS OUT

Try to get it to SONY or jus a reliable Gamestore or even someone you trust who has good tools (screwdrivers)and open it a easy way shown on YOUTUBE that wont affect the warranty. or buy a extra help fan off PLAY they use a USB socket so keep 1 spare.
