My playstation works fine for about 15-to 30 mins then sound goes away then it freezes and is supper hot..and its not as loud as it used to be,are my fans broken and is there anything i can do to fix it

Hi, final zidane!

It sounds like you're cooling system is having issues. May be some internal fans not working or some other factor. Sadly the only way to repair this issue is by getting it to official tech support. You could try ordering the replacement parts and having it repaired by a third party or yourself but this is not recommended since it voids the PS3 warranty.

Hope this helped you!

The fan on my ps3 is not blowing but the console comes on whats wrong?

well sometimes the thermostat in the ps3 could be faulty...or ur ps3 may just not need the fan on all times...if ur system works fine and after a while ur fan turns on , then ur fine...if it never turns on then you need it looked at...either a electronics technician or sony itself( only if u have a warranty though). either way if the system is working fine and the fan just doesnt come on most of the time, this could be a case of your ps3 just operating very well...the fan is only necessary if the temperature gets high enough to do any damage to the internals ..therefore i believe u may either have no problem at all...or a new fan installed by a technician may be ur issue...hope it helps.

What to do when my ps3 freezes during a game?

PSP freezes are usually caused do to overheating. This is a known issue ever since sony launched this cool console. The best way around this is get a USB powered coolant fan that will help cool the system and keep it from overheating even after sustained gaming for several hours. You can get one from the link below.

My internal fan quit working and i am now using fans that are around the house to keep it cool. know i was playing a game for like 3 hours straight and i went and watched a movie and it froze about 20...

Does the PS3 work again afterwards?
Do you still have control of the PS3 when the movie freezes; can you fast-forward/skip past the point it stopped.
If the movie freezes at the exact same point again, then it is a defect with the DVD, or is dirty/scratched.

if the PS3 is still working at all.. REPLACE THE FAN NOW! It should be quite simple. while one PS3's CPU may be able to handle overheating a thousand times and never break, another PS3 may overheat once and permanently destroy or weaken the CPU!

If the fan is just dirty, you should be able to open it, rebuild the fan by removing the (probably) sticker on one side and using a pin to pop off a retaining washer.. then you can push the fan blade off and clean the bearings and everything with isopropyl alcohol. put JUST one or two tiny drops of oil on the bearings/shaft and reassemble.
There may just be a hair inside. Often, fans have rubber o-rings inside -you SHOULD remove these as they will ALWAYS eventually stop the fan from working again if they've failed once before already.

If the fan is actually dead (quite rare) then you can purchase one online. Get an exact replacement, or one with the same measurements and either the same, or better, specifications (will be written on the fan, and can be searched online -important that the new fan moves as much CFM cubic-feet-per-minute of air)

360s r pieces of ****

assuming the ring of death issue with red lights half lit or not lit or lit in odd order, this would be temperature related and overheating issue, im assuming this causes system to freze, simple fix get a fan and cool it down a bit, run with fan on, if works ok then get yourself a modual fan built for xbox 360 hope it works.

Ps3 overheat

Your PS3 might have a broken fan. If you are using an external fan that attaches to the PS3 than stop, fans like the Nyko Intercooler and Pelican cause more problems with ventillation and may cause the PS3 to overheat. If heat is an issue make sure the system has plenty of room to breath and point a small fan at the console. If thiat doesn't work call Sony customer sopport.

PS3 Issue

the best bet for you is to ask Sony for service,it looks like the console is having major hardware issues..the only other option is to do a reset but you will lose all data..(u can back up though)

Just got a PS3 and it's freezing and screen is glitching when I start it up. I assume it's an over heating issue but do not know how to address it. I just bought a fan for the system to help cool it but it...

If its under a tear old tke it back, sounds liek the GPU or something is overheating, you dont need to buy fasn etc to fix this, there is a problem with it.
There should not be any heat or fan issues with the ps3, only the xbox 360.
