For the past month or so my ps3 has been randomly freezing on games. So far it hasn't been a problem, i simply restart it then it works regularly. But today i was playing Dishonored and it randomy freezed at a point. I restarted my ps3 and when i played the game again it froze. This time i tried to turn off my ps3 and it wouldn't turn off, the green light flashed for about 5 minutes before it finally turned off. For the third time i started up the game and this my screen stayed black. I ended up just turning off my ps3 and not using it for the night. Is my ps3 breaking? It's just after christmas so i won't be able to get a new one for a long time.
did you recently update to 4.31?
if so that is what it is.
No, it's not.
How old is your system? What is your set up like? Do you have enough air flow? Do you vacuumed the vents regularly? Have you tried Safe Mode? Try option 3.
