You need to get some compressed air and clean that console quick. Heat is the number one killer for 60gb PS3's. They run much hotter than later models. Make sure you UNPLUG your PS3 first, take it outside then spray all the dust out. Start with all of the vents on the bottom of the PS3. I usually use two cans of compressed air at once so that it's more powerful. Depending on how dirty it gets I would repeat the process monthly just for safety.

PS3 shuts down completely and abruptly without warning and reason


Your GPU gets hot, because when u start the console it gets hot, nd when u start a game it becomes hotter, when the system detects that ur GPU is hot it shuts down Automatically, the cause of this problem is common, you need to replace the GPU's thermal compound nd try to find the The Arctic Silver one, it's the best.. GOOD LUCK

Ps3 restoring problem


Does it give you an option to start without restore? Another option is to unplug it completely for 30 seconds. Mine sometimes does this too, but shutting it off almost always works

I put in the game Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and instead of loading in the game the screen pops up and says (Accessing game data. Please do not switch off the system while the HDD access indicator is...


This means it's loading your Game Data. There's nothing wrong with this appearing on the screen, it's common and simply indicates that it's loading your last saved state.
If it's stuck on that for a long period of time and not taking you into the game, then you need to go into the Saved Data Utility on your PS3 and delete your saved data file for Gran Turismo 5. Something might be corrupt.
Gran Turismo 5 uses a lot of the PS3's power, so having longer than average load times doesn't mean something is wrong with your PS3.

It wont play games or movies


Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.

Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.
