How do I fix a PS3 that freezes shortly after power up?

I have a couple of Sony PS3s that will power on for a few minutes, start to play a movie, and then just freeze or lock up. They will usually not power up until they cool off. This seems like a cooling issue, but I have not worked on one of these before. I have heard that Sony had problems with the PS3s. Is there a fix for what appears to be an overheating problem? The fans are working and warm to hot air blows out. Thanks.

Please help my ps3 games keep freezing every time I load a game in the ps3 it just freezes and make a loud noise and sometimes my ps3 games don't show up when I put the disc in the ps3, the ps3 makes a ejected sound but the game is still in the disc tray.

The eye that reads the disc is going bad or is already bad, you can buy a replacement on amazon for cheap and are very easy to replace yourself. My ps3 had the same issue buy a new eye replaced it and havent had any problems freezing.

If the thermal paste has come off between your CPU/GPU and heatsink, this will cause a problem. Also, if your fan is too dusty and can't spin, this could cause that problem. These are the first two things I would check. Note that I am currently in the process of making a full set of repair guides for the PS3.

just to make sure that it's a placing/heating problem: put it next to the room's window (or a bigger fan - and turn it on) if possible, and try to do what makes it usually freeze. if the extra cooling helps, you can be positive :)

what you can also do is use a hair dryer to get rid of the dust inside the ventillation system preventing the fans from blowing out enough hot air.

I had a problem with my PS3 40Gb overheating and going into turbo recently. Found it was pretty clogged up and that having it on its side rather than laying it flat helped significantly.

I also had a problem where I killed the power using the hard switch before I had turned the console off to standby (I know, don't ask) which caused it to freeze just like you describe. I found it was the HDD and it required a format of the drive (which lost me my saves, so back them up if you can) but fixed it straight away. The only thing I can think of is something got corrupted on the working space of the drive. Worth a shot if it's not just overheating.

I had the same problem and found this fix. Power on at the console but hold the button until you hear a second beep. "HDMI device has been detected" screen comes up. Continue through the prompts. I don't know why this works for me but resetting the output solves the freezing.

If it's heating up I would try moving it so there is as much open air around it as possible.

Some people like to "hide" their game systems so they usually get put in a cramped shelf which doesn't allow for ample cooling because the air in there can't escape so it heats up

If you want to dissasemble it, try tightening the CPU Clamps, if they are uneven, they may cause the PS3 to overheat and freeze, this also applies to xbox 360's

Freezing up just after playing a game is a precursor to the YLOD/RLOD and the cause is over heating. Too much dust blocking the air flow or the fan locking up, or the CPU/GPU not getting a good enough connection with the heat sink, or the solder joints have cracked and need to be reflowed.

Tim Gelvin knows what he's talking about. I've attempted to repair many xboxes with the Red Ring. It could be over-heating, or something simple - but odds are, if it's an old PS3, there's either something wrong with the solder joints under the CPU/GPU, or something wrong on the BGA packages themselves.

Unless you know someone who can >PROPERLY< re-ball a CPU/GPU (i've done it improperly several times :P ), any DIY attempt will be temporary at best.
