Ps3 doesnt display on my tv on regular plug and shuts off after 2 mins


The PS3 combines the features of a game console and a Blu-ray player in one device but like many highly sophisticated devices it can easily overheat. An overheating PS3 displays an LED on the front called the "yellow light of death" and shuts itself off after a few minutes. Repairing a PS3 system so that it doesn't overheat can be done at home, although you will need to open up the case and add heat dissipation paste to the GPU and CPU chips inside of the case. But it costs you more rather you can send the unit to SONY.

Yes this is the YLOD the (Yellow light of death) it happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and you will need to fix this by stopping the heat build up, you can sned it in and they will fix it for you for $130.

PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.

Ps3 overheat


Your PS3 might have a broken fan. If you are using an external fan that attaches to the PS3 than stop, fans like the Nyko Intercooler and Pelican cause more problems with ventillation and may cause the PS3 to overheat. If heat is an issue make sure the system has plenty of room to breath and point a small fan at the console. If thiat doesn't work call Sony customer sopport.

Ps3 fan doesnt work?


I have solution for all of you. You need to call sony at 1-800-345-7669. They will send you a box so you can place you unit in (ps3). If you got warrany on your ps3 they will ask you to send in a copy to varify that it is still in warrany. If it is then they will not charge you anything they will open up the system and see what the problem is either fix the ps3 or they will replace it with a refuribished one. Also you need to make sure that the warrany tag on the ps3 upper right side is still there or they will charge you 150 dollars. And if the serial on the back is removed they will not even service your unit. If you unit is not in warrany they will charge you 150 dollars. Wich is real good because they will dust the interior of it good luck everyone...

Shutting down on 60mg system


try holding the power button on the right
side of the console as you turn the back power switch on.Keep on holding the power button and see if there is a double beep.If this doesn't work,and if you want to try this? Open the HDD cover on the left side of the unit(front facing you).after removing the cover,remove the HDD unit and reconnect.It might be a loose HDD connection.This should only take you 2 mins to do and it won't void your warranty
