Re: PS2 Cooling Fan not spinning
Well could just be shot fans are not suppose to last forever the best thing to do would be replace the fan, make sure that the fan is not plugged up with anything and it has free movement when spinning if it struggles any then its seized up which would have to be replaced measure the fan and take a look on ebay for a replacement fan of that size but if you search for ps2 fan replacement then chances are that it will cost alot more.

Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

You can place the laptop on a fan assisted cooling pad which provides additional cooling.Check out this WEB site.http://www.au.best-price.com/search/landing/query/Fans+Cooling+Pad/s/google/koid/1358881989/?query=Fans+Cooling+Pad&gclid=CLL6xtnD-rICFQhgpQodcgcAmQ
This sounds like the protection circuit operating. With projection TV's, the cooling fan is essential to prevent damage from overheating. The fan contains a pulse generator to indicate rotation. If the pulse stops, the protection circuit will turn off the set. 5 minutes may be how long the fan takes to seize when it warms up. Also possibly heat sensitve parts along the cooling path covered with dust causing heat sensors to operate.
This problem is caused by a faulty cooling system. The fan is probably faulty and or the heat-sink assembly is clogged with dust.
Failure to correct this problem will cause the CPU to fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. Also check the heat-sink assembly/fan and remove the dust clogging these components.
If this does not fix the problem and the laptop has vents on the bottom of the laptop, then you can purchase a fan assisted cooling pad. Place the laptop on this pad and this will provide addition cooling to the laptop.
The overheating problem can be caused by a faulty fan (spinning slow) or the fan and heat-sink assembly is clogged with dust. Check the vents and fan/heatsink assembly and remove the dust. Check if the fan spins freely, replace if faulty.
To provide further cooling, there are fan assisted cooling pads that are placed under the laptop that provide additional fan assisted air cooling to inlet vents on the bottom of laptops.
After the notebook shuts down do not turn it back on for 15 minutes and then test it again. Will the notebook work longer if you let it cool down for a while? Isn’t it hot if you touch the bottom? Can you hear the fan running? Most likely you experience a laptop overheating problem and it would be fixed by cleaning the cooling module – the heat sink and the fan. The notebook processor produces a lot of heat when the notebook is turned on. The cooling module helps to keep the CPU cool when the laptop is working. The cooling module includes two parts: the heat sink and the cooling fan. The heat sink is attached to the CPU and helps to conduct the heat from the processor to the radiator. The cooling fan blows on the radiator and helps to disperse the heat produced by the CPU. The laptop will overheat if the heat sink radiator is clogged with lint and dust or if the cooling fan stopped spinning. If your laptop shuts down after some time without any reason and warning, check if the cooling fan spins. Usually it makes some noise and you can hear it. If the fan works fine, then check if the heatsink is clogged. In some cases you can clean the heat sink with compressed air, just blow inside the fan openings on the laptop bottom. If the heatsink is completely clogged, then it is necessary to remove the heatsink for cleaning.
