Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I bought a intercooler fan for my ps3 hoping that was my problem but i dont think it was...it turns on sometimes it;ll stay on for 20 mins max..but at other times it'll turn off instantly ...and its been a few times where it flashes a orange light instead of green or red...what can i do?
Check to see if the problem is overheating by storing it in a plastic bag in a refrigerator for 1/2 hour then power it up immediately. Don't let it stay out without power or let it dry as moisture will condense on it. If it stays on longer after cooling something is causing overheating., if not the problem is probably an intermittant short. If you can open it up and spray the components individually with freeze spray, this may isolate the problem. Sometimes pc boards warp under temperature changes and cause intermittant problems, sometimes it's a semiconductor.
