Probably system itself. VERY HIGHLY unlikely that its every single control that has malfuntioned.

My PS3 will play games for a few minutes then completely shut down in the middle of the game. What do i need to do to get it fixed

This sounds like a heat issue. CPU's have failsafes built into the BIOs so they turn themselves off to avoid damage. Make sure the fans are functioning, and that the area the console is located in has space to ventilate properly.

If your controller keeps shutting itself off, simply try replacing the batteries.

My xbox 360 controller just started freaking out in the middle of playing today. Everytime I fire my gun (causing the vibration) my character will start looking down and then my controller shuts off. I...

Turn the vibration off in the options menu of a game that allows it, if the game play is fine then you may have to ask Santa for a new controller, as that one sounds like it is starting to fail.

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

this will solve your problem easily :)

Power button failure

  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair

    My Sansa turns off by itself...Help?

    This happens to me to but only when Im listening to a long playlist and I haven't switched anything in a while, but if you go to "settings" and the to "auto shut-off" you can set the time you want it to auto shut off, usually it is on 5mins, so when the 5 minutes are up that you haven't touched it, it will shut off, i belive you sett it all the way up to 125 minutes, hope this helps!
