Playstation 3 freezes within minutes of startup

hey guys. i am new here and am going to be a future owner of a ps3. my co worker is passing on to me his first generation fat ps3 which is not working properly. starting it up is no problem, and leaving it on is no problem. however, starting a game or a movie it will freeze within minutes. just a still picture, no light errors or anything. i researched all over the net to try to find a solution, most people say send it back to sony. but this machine is pretty old and is the 1st gen so i would think warranty would be over for it. what do you guys think? if its a hardware failure for the blu ray drive, do you think its worth paying out of the pocket cash to get it fixed? or should i just go for the ps3 slim? thanks in advance!
