Make sure your system is well ventilated and you keep the vents clean with compressed air and vacuum the vents out also, it may be overheating which means your system will shut down itself.

I have an 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle system. System shuts down after 10 minutes and when restarted or turned back on it will says that the system was shut down incorrectly.


Base from the description of your problem this can be an issue with the overheating of the unit, if this problem happen even when you're not playing or playing the possibilities of overheating is high.

Because if the shut off only happen when you play games on your PS3 what you can do here to correct the problem is to do a software update on it, but if the shut off also happen when not playing games the system is overheating and the fan on it may not be working fine and needs replacement.

So if the PS3 is still under warranty better take it to service center near you and have the fan replace or better yet have the unit replace.

hmm, annoyingly this is quite a common problem on the early releases of the slimline Ps2 models. The power supply units get to hot and can cause this problem. I'd recommend getting an updated PSU unit which will be available online

Power button failure


  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair

    I believe there might be a problem with the power connector where you first turn on your system in the back. There is either a shortage or something inside has fried. Best thing to do is to have a gaming tech take a look at your system.
