Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Does your console crash about the time the fan kicks on? This is most likely a "heat sink" issue! If this is the case, it's going to need to be sent in for service. No matter what you do, it's just going to keep crashing. When this happened to me, I sent it in to PSR repairs ( www.psr1.com ) They said my repairs exceded the value of the unit... Now Sony is replacing it. Granted, I was still under the extended WalMart warranty, but it goes to show the seriousness of your issue.
Sorry to be the barer of bad news, bro. But your console really needs to get to a shop.
p.s. PSR does both warranty & out of warranty work.
