System shut down by itself during a game, and now when i go to turn it on it keeps shutting itself off


There are many reasons cause PS3 shutdown itself. Your PS3 hardware need some kind of fixes. Send back to Sony is expensive. You better repair by yourself. I suggest you bought this guide, you can learn how to trouble shooting and disassembly your console and fix it at last. Good luck!

Ps3 keeps shutting down


The problem you are facing currently could be due to oveheating problem that your console could be encountering, also check if you get any yellow flashing light or red flashing light when the console powers up and shuts down after 20 seconds

Dust is an electronics killer and the PS3 is no different. The first thing to try would be just taking your PS3 outside and blowing some compressed air through the bottom vents and around the PS3.

If this only works for some time and doesn't eliminate the problem you'll have to open your PS3 and clean the Thermal Compound off the CPU and GPU and then re-apply.

This process is relatively safe but you've got to be careful nonetheless. Try searching youtube for guides on this, but do this step only if you are confident, else please send it for repairs to Sony Customer Support

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps. Be sure to rate whether this helped or not.

Ps3 keeps switching off


It's overheating. That's why it works longer the first time and you have to wait a few minutes for it to cool. Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.
