Cuts out after 30 minutes of play , sometimes less and gets really hot

Your PS3 is overheating and the system is shutting itself down to save itself from serious damage.
If your PS3 is in a closed, confined space, get it out in the open. Make sure that none of the vents are being blocked. If there is alot of dust around the vents of the PS3, clean it out with compressed air.

If this does not alleviate the problem, there might be an internal issue such as dried out thermal paste or a broken fan. If you are comfortable in doing so, you can take apart the PS3 to fix these issues (many free tutorials are available online on how to take it apart, and spare parts are abundant on ebay). However, if your PS3 is still under warranty, it would be best to get them to fix it for free.

My ps3 fan and cd drive ae broken how do i repair them

the first step is disassembly. I like to watch vids of how other people have taken apart things before doing it myself. Here is a vid of how to take apart a ps3, remember you do not have to watch the whole video simply skip around and if u are stuck while taking it apart refer to the video.

After the blu-ray drive is removed you should be able to read the model number somewhere on its exterior. I then recommend purchasing a replacement by searching for that exact model number on ebay and, they look like they are going for around $100 as well as another search for - ps3 fan replacement -

I need to take apart my ps3 and clean the lens but i dnt no how

Try using a lens cleaner CD first. Most of the time a PS3 wont read BD because it's malfunctioned so you may have to send it in to Sony.

Pennies in cd slot

oh dear, heh.

Sorry the only way to open up the costly blue ray drive on the unit is to take the whole thing apart after that you can take the blueray drive out and open it up.

taking the ps3 apart may void your warranty and you alone will be responsible for your actions if you decide to take the ps3 apart and also the blue ray drive inside.

heres the take apart guide, do at your own risk

other option is to shake them out from there, maybe aid with a flat object carefull with it.

You my friend have fried the motherboard!!!! Only way to get that baby out is to take the ps3 apart then take the blue ray player apart.. its a long process and you could actually break all of the ps3!.. I can help you out if you want but its no easy task and you had better be ready to spend a few hrs on it at least!
I do buy ps3's and would be more then happy to purchase your fried system and return your games! Let me know!
