Your PS3 might have a broken fan. If you are using an external fan that attaches to the PS3 than stop, fans like the Nyko Intercooler and Pelican cause more problems with ventillation and may cause the PS3 to overheat. If heat is an issue make sure the system has plenty of room to breath and point a small fan at the console. If thiat doesn't work call Sony customer sopport.

When i turn my ps3 on everything works but in 2-5 minutes it will beep ,the screen will turn off and the blue light turns red and blinks for a while..what do i do?



If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

PlayStation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard and other functioning components...

PS3 will not turn on


your ps3 has the yellow light of death, here are some quick fix you can do:

1. Turn off your PS3. If you think it has been caught by the heat, then give it some time to cool down and turn it back on again

2. Check your PS3 and see if there is any loose cable

3. Try to put out the hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results

4. Clean the air vents from dust and PLEASE don't put your PS3 on the floor on up against the wall because it will block the air and that what cause the ps3 to overheat

Good luck.

When i turn my ps3 on the green light turns amber then starts flashing red. how can i fix it?


This is the yellow light of death and happens when the system overheats. When the system overheats it causes the solder on the board to melt and connect. The system needs to be reflowed. Check out www.wiredextreme.com. We can help you with this problem. All of our repairs include a 90 day warranty.

Why are we all having the same problem the last two days?


What happened is that sony has changed the power of the laser that read's the blue ray discs. This is causing a lot of the disc readers to die.

Also recent games have been using the ps3's power to the max and is causing some of them to overheat.

Our PS3 was freezing all the time so we hadn't played in months.Installed new hard drive. Reformatted it. It played for about 5 or 10 minutes, then froze again. Turned it off. Started it again: The light...


the ps3 has a tendency to overheat in enclosed spaces. put it in an open area, and run a small fan on it. there are usb fans that you can plug into the console to help circulate air around the system.

good luck

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,
