Something fried inside it. either that or its a hard drive issue. swap out the HDD and try turning it on. if it shuts off again youll need to get it repaired or replaced.

Ps3 wont turn on no power at all... no


Hi,

Most of the times, you're going to find that this is due to over heating. If you've been playing for a while, shut down your Playstation, and let it sit for about 1 hour. It's best if the room is cooled off as well.If the room is hot, you may want to put a fan blowing toward it, or turn up your Air Conditioning.Check the back of your unit, and make sure that all of the cables are plugged in. What you're going to want to do is take out each one, and blow the inside of the ports with compressed air.

To play it safe, take out the Playstation's hard drive, and place it back in.Once the 1 hour is up, and the Playstation hasn't been running, turn it back on, and see if everything is working. If it is, you're good to go! If it isn't, you may want to consult with Sony.


Thank you !!

Somthing is wrong with you air unit in your system and the reason it is shutting off is because a heating sensor is telling it too.....you gotta fix you air unit or keep a fan on the system while playing it......do not try to disable the heating sensor because the motherboard will blow up

Console shut off while playing


Hi there,

this is a over heating problem, very common in PS3

If it is still in warrently then send it back to sony.

if not you can find instructions on google on how to open it, this is what i done with mine.

you then need to buy some artic silver 5 thermal compound and replace the old cheap while paste on the CPU and GPU

this will solve your problem easily :)

thanks

PS3 wont work


How long were you playing it? if you were playing for a couple of hours, then it could of just overheated, in which case the ps3 will shut itself off suddenly to keep from damaging something. It should work after about half an hour, adequate time for it to cool down, if not, then you might of damaged something.
