I was wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction on a possible fix?

I have a 160 GB PS3 (I guess it's considered the 2nd gen model). Almost every blu-ray disc I play at around the 40-45 minute mark, the video playback tends to freeze/stutter and the video becomes all choppy. At first I thought it was the disc, but eliminated that thinking process when I tested the discs on other blu-ray players. I would shut down the ps3 and let it relax for several hours. I would start playing the film right where I left off, and again after another 30-40 minutes of playback the video tends to freeze/stutter. I also use Vudu to stream movies and I'm able to stream the entire movie without any delays. Is this considered a laser issue? I don't think it's an HDMI cable issue if it's able to stream without any hiccups.

Any suggestions? thanks!

Hi I have a problem and need some help

My Muppets movie (2012) blu ray won't load on my PS3. It gets to the screen that says stay tuned for some movie preview, but then goes black and won't load the menu. The disc works fine on my other Sony blu ray player and PS3 has latest software update (4.81). Other discs load fine. It's my 6 year Olds favorite, so this is very frustrating

Thanks in advance

I got the YLOD on Saturday night on my 60GB "fat" PS3 (manufacturing date of September 2007) and now I have a disc stuck in the unit itself. Performing the trick to eject it isn't working...any ideas how to get it out? I presume I'm going to have to open it up to do so.

I have a question about PS3 lag I'm hoping there's a solution to:

I have a PS3 and PS4, both slim, and hadn't played my PS3 for maybe 6 months or more. Didn't play anything or even turn it on since I was using my PS4.

The last time I did use my PS3 before that dry spell I didn't notice significant lag on any game I played (Tomb Raider, Last of Us, Uncharted, etc.) but a few weeks ago I came back to my PS3 to play the first Assassin's Creed which is lagging A TON. And it isn't just slowing down, I can see the partial frames splitting through the middle of the screen as they try to catch up.

I've also heard the first Assassin's Creed was a tech proof of concept so is this the game asking too much of my PS3 or is my PS3 just getting old (5 years of light use)? Is there anything I can do to reduce this lag? I've kept it vertical so it hasn't collected dust inside and the fan runs like normal.
