Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
WHEN I CUT MY PS3 ON AS SOON AS I START A BD OR GAME (NOT EVEN 5 MIN.)AND THAT ANNOYING FAN COMES ON AND WILL NOT GO OFF...MY FRIEND HAS ONE AS WELL AND HE SAID HIS ONLY CAME ON ONE TIME-WHEN HE HAD IT CLOSED UP IN AN ENTERTAINMENT CENTER ANY SUGGESTIONS?
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.
