My PS3 takes forever to load up, during games and on the main menu of the PS3. So what happened to it and what can I do to fix it.?

one of two things causes this
a.) CD is scratched (check shiny side of cd for scratches or spots from dirt etc) Get a scratch buffing machine to fix.
b.) BD player inside has a dirty lense and needs to be cleaned. get a cleaning disc from local electronics store. preferably a wet type. Follow instructions.

After running my PS3 for a while to watch movies, the unit fan gets very loud, is this normal?

this shouldnt happen, the problem is the fan is blocked and needs clearing out, as the system gets hotter and the hot air needs to get out if dust is blocking this happening then the ps3 fan will make a loud noice,

try cleaning it with a DAMP cloth, not wet as you dont want to break it, try blowing into the fan as well, also clean the whole ps3 and the surrounding area so its dust free. 

hopefully your fan isnt broke inside, if it is and your still within warranty take it back and get it fixed

good luck

hope this helped,

Playstation 3 turns off by itself

this could be your ps3 overheating due to your fans being blocked by dust, clean your ps3 with a damp cloth, not wet as this will damage your ps3 even more, if this doesnt work and your ps3 is still within warranty take it back and get it fixed for free, if you need more help dont hesitate in writing back

My ps3 has got wet and now keeps switching itself on and off, what can i do?

electronics really only harm themselves when they get wet if you then plug them in whilst still got water in them, this doesn't apply to everything but to most.
If the ps3 is in warranty call sony and just tell them it isn't working and they will exchange (dont mention it got wet) if its out of warranty I would personally take it apart (you have to take the warranty sticker off and there is a screw under it which when taken out lets you slide the cover off. once the cover is off there are about 8 screws to remove and you are then in the player. go over the open console with a hair dryer to thouroughly dry it out dont get to close or use to much heat) hopefully if you havn't cuased any permanent damage turning it on when damp the short will have cleared itself. If not its likely that you have cuased a problem with the motherboard which would require repair or replacement.

My ps3 got all wet

Best advice i can give you is turn it off and turn the main power switch off and unplug the machine. Leave it for a few days somewhere with lots of air circulation. Let the curcuits dry and if it still does not work you will have to send it in to sony. Call them and they will send you a box to ship it back to them. Or buy a new one :(

This kind of thing happened quite a bit on older gaming systems if the joy stick was tilted while booting. If this still happens when you leave the controller sitting on a flat surface while booting, the joy stick sensor may be a bit stuck - usually you can solve this by clicking down on the left stick and or moving it somewhat violently for a few seconds. If that doesn't do it try a silicon based lubricant, wet a section of cloth with it and then wipe it on the exposed based of the joy stick - move it around a bit to get it inside and try it then.

Wet ps3 controller

that all depends on how wet the controller was. if anything inside got too wet then most likely no. however, if the outer casing was all that was afflicted then yes. the controller should have no problems. hope this helps.

Disply is not coming

I had the same problem. What happened scince the last time it worked? Did it get wet? for me mine got wet in mexico and it only turned on if i plugged it into my ps3 or truck. if this happens to you, its defanately your battery.go to a store like future shop or even HMV, theill let you order a new battery. if the ipod is worse or breaks in the process, send it in to apple if its in the span of your warranty. if it isnt, the repair is almost free its so cheap and shipping is around $20.
