My ps3 makes sort of a motor, fan thing sound, what do i do?


do not panic, its not a mojor problem.

sometimes your ps3 fan mite make a horrible sound which is louder than usual, i have found. by leaving it for a while it will return to normal.

fans **** in dust, and the dust sticks to your circitry inside your ps3, which makes your ps3 get hot alot quicker.
to avoid this make shure the area around your ps3 is dust free, another way the help prevent thins is byplacing your ps3 in a cubbard or under something, this will collect dust on top stopping it from laying on your ps3.

reguarly hoover out your ps3.

i would also suggest buying more cooling fans(i think they sell on ebay) this will put less stress on the fans inside.

hope this could be of some help.

I think my ps3 issue is different than everybody elses. I shut down my ps3 one day and flipped switch in back to unplug the system and when I plugged it back in ant hit the switch back on in back of system...


In order to fix the RLOD error on your PS3, you should try to do these 3 things.
1 - Restart your console.
2 - Take out all cables, and plug them back in.
3 - Take out the hard-drive, and place it back in your PS3 console.
If these 3 tips didn't help you to fix your PS3 red light error, then it's high likely that you need to open up your console, and fix the problem from within. I really can't help you with that, because you'll need step by step instructions that's coming along with either videos or pictures. But, you've got 3 options to get your hardware problems solved.
There Are 3 Ways To Fix Your PS3 Red Light Problems.
1) If you don't have a clue of how to fix your PS3 flashing red light by yourself, you could send your PS3 back to Sony and let them figure out how to repair the problem. This is a pretty time taking way of fixing your ps3 because it could take up to 1 month before you will get your console back. And if your warranty has been expired, you have to pay $150,-
2) Take your PS3 to your local repair shop and let them fix it. Also, this might sounds like a good idea, but trust me, this only costs you a fortune and it takes up to 2 weeks. Another downside of this is that they can't guarantee that your PlayStation 3 will be fixed. The only one who can guarantee that it will be fixed, is you! The only thing you need to know, is how to fix ps3 flashing red light problem.
3) Fix your PlayStation 3 by yourself. If you don't know how to fix ps3 flashing red light, than it's no problem. We will teach it to you! It's not hard, it's not expensive and it's not time consuming. In matter of fact, I know that you can fix your PS3 within this hour!

My playstation3 stopped working on 23/5/10. very hot day. now it starts momentarily then cuts out within 1 second. red light flashes. then an amber/yellow light. help


your ps3 has a under powered fan... you will have to mail you ps3 in to get fixed.. they will give you a ps3 they fixed. The new ps3 will have a more powerful fan.. but it will bug the **** out of you.

My PS3 all of a sudden will not load any games. The disc icon will not show up on the screen, everything else seems ok. Is there any way to fix it without sending it out.

If your PS3 will not play any disks then most likely there is a problem with the laser on the drive. Now you can try to clean it and some times this will work. On the systems that come in about 50% of them get fix by me cleaning the laser.

Note very important DO NOT USE a DVD/CD cleaner disk on the PS3.
You may scratch the lense on the drive. You will need to find one that is supported in a Blu-Ray drive (I do not know if they make them yet because I normally break the system down to clean it)
Also note if the system is in warranty call Sony and/or the place that you got your extended warranty through before opening the system.
If you think you can open the system you self the link below with help you open up the system and clean the drive. Also there are other walk throughs on the Internet. However if you are not an Computer Tech I would recommend to look for someone in your area because taking apart the system can be hard.

Yellow, red light of death


If its just overheating, make sure the PS3 is in a well ventilated area. Additionally, you can purchase a cooling fan to help. If it just doesn't work at all, you should contact Sony Customer Support and arrange for repair or replacement.

Playstation 3 problems


Hi, I had a similar problem not so long ago, when the PS3 would turn itself off, I think it was an issue with the fan, don't forget these things run quite hot, have you got adequate ventilation to the sides, top and bottom and do you get a lot of fan noise (like a jet aircraft!!).
If memory serves me well, a system update also did the trick, as I think fan issues were fixed in this.
Hope this helps
