If the power button binks red after it shuts off it is over heating. Get some air duster and clean out the vents on all sides of the system. Make sure it has plenty of room to "breath" in your entertainment center. In some cases you may have to take it out of the entertainment center to keep the device as cool as possible.

Sounds like an overheating issue. You could take apart and apply new thermal paste to the gpus. I reccomend arctic silver 5.

It could be that your Playstation 3 is overheating. Unplug the cables a leave the console to cool down for 20 minutes or so. If the problem keeps happening you can buy a playstation cooler system that fixs on the side of your console. If its a unrelated issue with over heating try reinstalling the lastest Playstation 3 update. "2.80"

Hello, I think You should have a cooling fan that can cool it from heat. Because the cause of that problem is that the prossesor is over heated and it cant contiune. So you have to take out of power for sometime (1 hour or more) then try it again. If you need me call on me back.

If its an unwanted christmas present, I'm guessing its still under warranty, so call sony. They'll fix it for free. Your problem sounds a bit...irregular.

How do I turn off Logitech PlayStation 2 Cordless Action Controller


They turn off by themselves after a few minutes. If they don't shut off (they kind of hibernate actually) after 5 minutes then remove one of batteries.

Playstation 3 power issue


Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.

Playstaion 2 slimline shut down


You probably have something wrong with the fan inside. Open up your Slim and clean it out real good and try it to see if the problem goes away. I sometime see that dust clogs the fan and stops it from spinning.
