The PS3 is no doubt an awesome game console. But, nothing is indestructable and sometimes have to give us grief. I no doubt have had my share of issues with game consoles (XBOX 360, Playstation, etc). Game freezes, lock ups, no video or audio, red ring of death, E problem, and just many others. I have found that most of the problems are a pretty simple fix. You dont have to be an electronics tech to fix them either. These fixes do work and I have helped many others get back in the game and have received great comments from them. So give this Fix a try, you may be glad you did.
Also, a little tip if you dont know already, ALWAYS keep your game console WELL VENTILATED..These things can get really HOT and cause you some problems. I use and recommend a little wire rack stand. It is rubber coated (white) and has 4 legs on it. You can find these at your favorite department store in the "kitchen" or probably "bathroom" dept. It works real well for me.
