Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
After about 20 mins of playing a game or watching a DVD the console turns itself off and red light flashes, i turn it of at the mains then turn it back on again i have to do this a couple of times but after that it will work all day long, is there a problem with the console or am i doing something wrong.
There are some known issues with the PS3 overheating.
Be sure that there is plenty of room around the unit. ie; not directly under or over another piece of electronic equipment, it needs room to breathe!
There are numerous suppliers of "intercoolers" and fan systems to help cool the unit available for around $20.00.
If you have a small fan, you may want to try it on the unit to be sure that this is indeed the problem!
