Hi There,

I have had this problem, as my PS3 is now out of warrenty i have decided to fix it myself, so if your PS3 is out of warrenty aswel i sugguest you do the following, if not then send it back to sony.

The problem seems to be a over heating, you will notice this as the fan kicks in to high power after about 10mins.

What you need to do is disassemble it, heres a guide that can help you: http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_disassembly_tutorial.htm.

After this you will see the CPU and GPU, the problem there is the thermal compound on it, its dry and cracked and not enough, u need to clean all this off and buy some Artic Silver 5 Compound, on ebay for under £5, you then need to place some on the CPU and GPU corner to corner then smooth it across with a card, as thin as you can! then put it all back together.

problem solved

My ps3 shutsdown when playing mw2 at any random point a red light appers and then i turn it on and it keeps happening with mw2 and uncharted 2


Possible overheating. Make sure your PS3 is dust free, and cleaned. I'm just thinking you need to clean your PS3 from the dust and keep it in a well aired area.

WHEN YOU TURN ON THE PS3 AND GETS TO THE USERS IT DOSENT DO ANYTHING AND DOSENT SHOW THE USERS


try rebuilding the database and the file system in recovery consol

to get to the recovery consol press and hold the power button when ps3 is in standby mode(red light) till you hear a double beep. sometimes the ps3 does a beep then another beep and goes back into standby thsi is fine just release the power and quikly press and hold it again till you get double beep.

like on my 80g system it goes like this

ps3 standby...press hold power.......beep .........beep........stanby again....release and hold power again.......beep .........double beep...release power now you should be in recovery menu.

Ps3 shuts off on its own


This is happening because your console is not recognizing the HDD (hard drive) for what ever reason. A corrupted file is about to do damage to your console, and a PS3 will not turn on if it thinks further damage will occur. Here are two things you can do;
1. Try accessing the HDD reset menu. Here's how you do this: With a solid red light showing, hold down both the power & eject buttons. You're going to hear a single beep, then a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. You'll get a message on your TV saying "connect your controller using USB". Following all the instructions will lead you to a 6 item menu. You are going to choose number 3. If that option doesn't work, pick number 6. BE WARNED!!! Number 6 will delete ALL of your saved memory! I know that really sucks, but this may be the only way to save your console short of repair.
If none of this works, or the console just won't let you do the "double button" thing, it'll need to be repaired. You can contact PSR repairs at www.psr1.com. They are really great! They do both warranty & non-warranty repair work for a very decent price. I hope I helped. Good luck.
