Hello This is a sign that the ps3 has become a heat issue.First power down the ps3.Then get a can of compressed air,sold at staples or any pc repair shop. Blow out all dust and dirt from ps3.Pay close attention to cooling fans.It may be a good idea to remove cover and clean out internal fans and motherboard. Once done wipe ps3 clean and reinstall it in a well vented area. Try ps3 again. If you still have no luck then the graphics chip may be fried.But check all your cables first.
1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.
2. Hold down the eject disc button.
3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.
4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.
If the fan is making weird noises there is either something wrong with the bearing or it has ingested something.
Maybe you could look, listen closely and determine which it is. If it's foreign matter you may be able to extract or vacuum it out. If it's just bearing noise, you have to decide how bothersome it is and if a shop visit is justified. A clog is BAD because the fan is protecting the unit from high temperatures.
The weird noises could signal that the charge system is going bad, the very long warm up is not a good thing.. The flash may need to be repaired, but the cost of repairing an old SB-50 as compaired to buying a new SB-400 or Sb-600 has to be weighed. Take the flash to a local camera shop that sells nion and let them look at it.
