It is overheating. the chip has an internal temperature sensor.
I bet if you put your hand ontop of it when it does this it is blowing out fairly hot air. Mine is doing it because I took it apart to fix the fan and didnt use enough heatsink paste. if you have lots of ventilation and it cant be overheating then try taking it apart and redoing the heatsinks.

I inserted my Friday the 13th Killer Cut bluray into my ps3 and it doesn't read it at all....i put it into my computer and it plays fine? My ps3 is all updated as well....


Please try:
  • running another game bd
  • deleting any game file data (if any)
  1. if another game bd doesn't run, you got a problem with your disk reader (you'll have to buy a new one or take the system to warranty).
  2. if another game bd runs, and deleting the files doens't work, try restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your saved game data !!!)

Pitched noise coming from the fan


When I first got my PS3, It had the annoying high pitched fan sound as well, but went away after a week and has worked fine ever since, no problems at all. I have the 60 gig version, so. Maybe if yours is new you just need to break it in?
