You can fix this by stopping the heat build up on the chips and using a good guide to do this it should only take you about 30 mins or you can send it in for a fix.

My playstation turns on for approx 15 seconds then turns itself off again, whats wrong?


I'm guessing that there is a red light blinking when it turns off.

if so,

it has overheated.

Let it sit for a day and keep it away from carpet, anything that makes heat, and atleast 4 inches from everything in general.

If it escalates to turning off immediately and flashes yellow and red, then you have a dead system. To fix this you need to send it to Sony if it's in warranty, or wiredextreme.com if it's not.

Because wiredextreme.com is better in so many ways.
