PS3 Slim Keeps Freezing, need help!!

3 replies 103 views Edited Dec 18, 2012

I Have a PS3 slim, CECH2004B, almost  3yrs old now. Everytime I start it to play or browse or watch movie it freezes after 15min. So i have to restart it then, it will happen again this time every 5 min. which i can't do anything to my PS3. I try the recovery mode options, each one of it. I also change the hard drive. I change the thermal paste, still nothing, it still freezes.

One time i don't use my PS3 for a month, after that, I decided to play and start it. I can play for almost 2-3hrs for 3 days then again, back to freezing.. First after 15min, then afterwards, every 5min.

 

What seems to be the problem of my PS3? any suggestions or solutions perhaps.. need help..my PS3 has been like this for almost 1yr now.

 

My PS3 is 3yrs now, Have'nt played much heavily on it, so i'm wondering what would be the problem..

well if you know the HDD is good then sounds like you may have not did the thermal paste job correctly but i could be wrong..DO NOT spread the paste..put a pea drop in the middle and let the heatsink spread it out..
