Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 is all screwed up.. when i turn it on it makes the sound when the ps3 logo comes up, but once i start up any game there is no sound at all... also when i do play my games with no sound after only about 10-15 mins the game freezes. i need help with this, i paid alot for my ps3 since it is only a 20GB one and fairly old since it was one of the first ones made
YOU MAY WANT TO LOOK INTO PUTTING COOLING FANS ON UR PS3..THE UNIT RUNS EXTREMELY HOT ON HIGH END GAMES AND HEAT IS NOT GOOD..THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT FANS SOLD FOR THE PS3. A FRONT MOUNT DUAL FAN THAT PLUGS INTO ONE OF THE USBS FOR POWER.. A TOP MOUNT 3 FAN UNIT THAT USES THE USB AS WELL FOR POWER AND A BACK MOUNT UNIT THAT HAS 2 MEDUIM AND 3 SMALL FANS THAT COMES WITH A SEPERATE POWER SUPPLY.. I HAVE ALL THREE ON MY PS3 AND IT HELPS ALOT,, STILL GET THE ODD FREEZEUP BUT ABOUT 90% LESS THAN BEFORE..WHEN USING THESE FANS ALSO MAKE SURE U HAVE LOTS OF AIRSPACE AROUND THE UNIT CUZ THEY WONT WORK RIGHT IF THEY CAN MOVE THE AIR OUT OF THE MACHINE..
GOOD LUCK AND GOOD GAMING

If you try reseting the unit unplugging everything and plugging back in.
Also , did you receive the 1 year warranty with your unit. I would call Sony and push for a new unit.
It seems like alot of people of having the same issues with their unit also.
