Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Your PS3 may have overheating problems. If any of the fans are no longer working, it could slowly overheat. Also, you should keep it in an area where the air can circulate well.
If it is a fan issue, you could fix it yourself, but at your own risk! Opening the unit up could void any warranty that you may have, and if you don't know what you're doing, you could break it even further.
If your warranty is already void, you could open up the case, and run it without a cover to see if any fans are not working. If the inside is dusty, this can also lead to heat buildup, so you may wish to vacuum, dust, or wipe down the insides with a damp cloth. Just make sure that if you use a damp cloth, that you have unplugged the electrical cord, and do not turn it on again until you're absolutely sure that the insides have dried. Also, use water, and make sure it is only slightly damp. If you have any drops, it could mess things up.
