Sounds like you may have blown the motor on your system. Don't try using it until you find out what's wrong could start a fire

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.

How do I reduce my clipper's rattling noise and still be able to cut properly?

The power screw is the correct way to adjust the problem you describe. If you have attempted to adjust it as instructed in the user manual and have not had satisfactory results, there may be a problem with the clippers.
Most Wahl clippers have a 1 year or longer warranty. You can call Wahl for warranty service at 1-800-334-4627

Ps3 will not play

Sounds to me like your hardware is faulty and needs to be replaced. Check and see about their warranty assurance. If you still fall under their warranty, they will gladly replace the system.

PS3 freezing during multiple games

Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.
