Why Does My PS3 freeze?


i was playing Battle Feild BC and SOCOM and my PS3 froze. Is there an Auto turn off when it gets to hot? the two colors stay the same.green and blue.what can be the problem? could it be the long USB cable i keep in there for my controller to re charge?or is it the PS3 auto turn off? if u have any other ideas or answers please let me know.

  1. it might be overheating, do you have it in a place where it can’t basically “breath” right? you need to put it in an open space area and try to put a fan in the room to circulate the air. yes it can turn off when its really hot. it has nothing to do with the usb ports.

  2. To be honest, I don’t know that the cause of your PS3 freezing.

    You better send it to Sony as soon as possible.

  3. Its not the heat that makes it freeze up like that. Its normal that the PS3 freezes up when you are online. Its happend to me, and all my friends. Ill just be on for not even 30 minutes (this rarely happends), and it freezes on me, and im just on playstation home. You can set your PS3 to turn off at a certain time, but when you set it, its only for if your not playing or doing anything on your PS3, then it will automatically shut off. Dont worry about it. If you play COD 4 add me Ratp10t.
