The timing makes me think it could possibly be overheating. If it's located where the vents are covered up, move it. If not, it probably needs to be repaired by Sony.

My PS3 has a major fault and I don't know what is causing it


Mark, as much as I'd love to talk up about the PS3 system, I have heard of a major concern. With the latest iteration of the SONY PS3 system, affectionately named "Super Slim", it's no secret that SONY cut some corners in the production of the new system. Mainly, the redesign eliminated the blue-ray disk drive mechanism from all previous versions of the PS3, resulting in a very PS1 like configuration. (Very simple opening door). In doing so, the cost of manufacturing was cut almost in half. From my personal experiences with the "Slim" and "Super Slime" I can tell you there are marked differences in performance. The software is solid, but when I play COD Advanced Warfare on my "Slim" I notice the game plays smoother than the "SS", and the disk spins much faster and louder than the "Slim". If I had to guess, and this is from several systems, the Blue-ray drive is spinning up, then causing the cpu to overheat(Another much blogged problem with the "SS"), resulting in a diode failure that shuts down the system. If it's still under warranty, take it back for a new one. If not, you're going to have to send it in for and "Out-of-Warranty" service that may be pricey. God luck, and hope this helps.

My ps3 stop playing my game disc


The most common reason for the game not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!


You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
Take care.

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

My ps3 wont play any discs pleas help me


there is a possibility that the place where your PS3 is, is too hot or cold for your system to function properly
the place ur keeping PS3 shouldnt be below 60 or above 86 degrees

if that isnt the case then try restoring your ps3, unplugging all cords and let it sit there for at least a day
