Sure, it can. try cleaning your coolers : turn the on off switch behind the console OFF, then hold the eject button and , HOLDING THE EJECT BUTTON,switch the on off key ON (behind the system). it will clean your coolers.

PS3 Turning off at random(overheating?)


your ps3 could be in the process of breaking i got the ylod just last night your warranty has expired you could just run your ps3 untill it breaks then open it up and try to repair it but thats a tricky thing to do. and dont leave games in it incase it breaks they will be trapped inside, my modern warfare 2 is stuck in mine -.-

The playstation switched itself off. The red light was flashing.I switched it off at the main switch , and on again and it played ok for 10 minutes then switched itself off again.


The System is becoming to hot. make sure the vents are clear of objects and dust. let it cool down for awhile before continuing to play.

hope this Helps

After 20 mins of play console turns itself off and red light flashes


There are some known issues with the PS3 overheating.

Be sure that there is plenty of room around the unit. ie; not directly under or over another piece of electronic equipment, it needs room to breathe!

There are numerous suppliers of "intercoolers" and fan systems to help cool the unit available for around $20.00.

If you have a small fan, you may want to try it on the unit to be sure that this is indeed the problem!

Good Luck!
