If you've had this happen with two systems in a row, then it may not be the systems. First, try hooking up the PS3 directly to the TV, or another TV, and see if the issue still occurs. If it does, then something between the PS3 and the TV is causing your issue. Otherwise, call and get it replaced again, and hope the issue doesn't happen again.

My internal fan quit working and i am now using fans that are around the house to keep it cool. know i was playing a game for like 3 hours straight and i went and watched a movie and it froze about 20...

Does the PS3 work again afterwards?
Do you still have control of the PS3 when the movie freezes; can you fast-forward/skip past the point it stopped.
If the movie freezes at the exact same point again, then it is a defect with the DVD, or is dirty/scratched.

if the PS3 is still working at all.. REPLACE THE FAN NOW! It should be quite simple. while one PS3's CPU may be able to handle overheating a thousand times and never break, another PS3 may overheat once and permanently destroy or weaken the CPU!

If the fan is just dirty, you should be able to open it, rebuild the fan by removing the (probably) sticker on one side and using a pin to pop off a retaining washer.. then you can push the fan blade off and clean the bearings and everything with isopropyl alcohol. put JUST one or two tiny drops of oil on the bearings/shaft and reassemble.
There may just be a hair inside. Often, fans have rubber o-rings inside -you SHOULD remove these as they will ALWAYS eventually stop the fan from working again if they've failed once before already.

If the fan is actually dead (quite rare) then you can purchase one online. Get an exact replacement, or one with the same measurements and either the same, or better, specifications (will be written on the fan, and can be searched online -important that the new fan moves as much CFM cubic-feet-per-minute of air)

I loose all audio on my PS3

Hi there,

PS3 are not made to keep powered on as they other heat.

Buy a cooling unit for it this will help, or just stick a normal house fan near it.

Hope this helps

PS3 stopped working

the "no video" problem is quite common. you most likely have cold or even worse, bridged solder joints resulting in poor connections in your RSX/CELL processors.

PS3 has no audio or video

Make sure the system is off. Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds until you hear the second beep. Your video settings should now be reset and you will be able to choose your connection type. It will automatically default to AV so make sure you at least have that plugged in.
