Anyone had a PS3 screen freezing?

Had the ps3 for around 14 months or so, so it isnt under warranty.  A few times over the past couple of months if i put a game in it freezes, cant turn it off with my controller. now (on COD in particular) it freezes when loading game, and on other games so pretty sure it isn't COD but that is the only one i play online so thought it was worth mentioning.  Called Sony and they advised a system restore which im doing now, around 14 hours.....  Common question may be is it ventilated.  No it is poor to be honest, and will be dusty where it is kept (behind stuff away from baby).  Is it like a normal PC with a fan that needs clearing? can i open and access this easy?   Also when i had a PS2 i remember phoning sony when it broke and they didnt even care about a warranty, for 40 quid they picked it up from me and dropped off a recon, or would have fixed mine if i really wanted that.  Anyone know if such a service exists as i dont think sony do that any more?
Any suggestions how i can sort this?

The most important thing about goals is having one.

    They freeze a lot, I've had both fat and slim version and both were the same. My mates say the same. 
    The only game which has caused problems for me is fallout new vegas, that freezes all the time for everyone.
    Not had a problem with COD, but I don't play it that much.
