Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I turn on the ps3 the fan starts for a second or two, then it shuts down immediately. The power light is still green, but nothing is happening. I've tried holding the power button for 5 seconds and 15 seconds, but it has not helped. I'm out of warranty so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
LISTEN FELLAS, IF THE RED LIGHTS COME ON, IT MEANS THAT YOUR SYSTEM HAS OVER HEATED AND WILL POWER UP ONLY FOR A FEW SESONDS AND THEN SHUT DOWN..IF UR NOT UNDER WARRENTY THEN YOUR **** OUT OF LUCK, UNLESS YOU TEAR IT DOWN COMPLETELY TO THE MOTHERBOARD AND CLEAN WHERE IT HAS THE THERMAL GLUE..RAIDO SHACK HAS REMAL GLUE FOR $5BUCKS YOU MUST THEN CLEAN AROUND THE CHIPS(U CANT MISS THEM) NES U CLEAN THEM THEN PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER VERY CAREFULY........THEN POWER IT ON AND IT WORKS...U ASK HOW DO I NO? BCUZ THE BROUGHT THE "PS3 REPAIR GUIDE" OFF EBAY AND T TELL YOU EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR SYSTEM, LOOK AT IT THIS WAY I JUST SAVED MYSELF $149BUCKS THAT SONY WAS GONNA CHARGE ME....IT WAS WELL WORTH IT GUYS...OH YEA IF ANYONE HAS GHOST RECON 2 OR SOCOM MY GAMERTAG IS UxSMELLxLIKExPEE

I had a HDMI cable hooked up for bout a week when I stayed at my friends and when I got it back it would show the green and blue lights and fan would start up but know picture or sound....by the way I'm not using the hd cord no more does that have anything to doe with it?

You both sound like you have an over heating issue. Mostly if the fan does not stay on. The PS3 always has a fan on, just the first setting is very quiet. Do you feel any air being blown out of the back (where the power cord goes in)?
