My ps3 keeps freezing. How do i make it stop?

52 replies 58032 views Edited Nov 27, 2008

I was playing far cry 2 and i was about to shoot someone when the ps3 just froze. I still heard the sound but couldnt do anything. So i had to turn of the ps3. This doesnt just happen in facry, but in gta

and mgs4. It is so annoying and i think that i am at big risk of getting the yellow light of death. Ofcourse i hae a warranty so even if i do get the ylod ill just replace it in the store but i really want to know how to stop this random freezing.

Leave it off for an hour or so? Boot it back up and see?

You could put the PS3 outside on a table and run a cord from it to the TV and it should stay cool. :LOL:

clean it out, use a vacuum and suck dust from the vents (while the unit is off and unplugged)

Like mentioned make sure it has enough air, clean it out for dust, and make sure its not too hot in your room.  If this doesnt work send it in for repairs.
