Does this happen with any game? If it happens with multilpe games and other uses (browsing internet, playing media) then you might have an overheating problem. Either you have it in a hot environment or a relatively closed off space. Try to make sure the fans have the space to move air through the unit.

Another possibility: one of the fans not working. Your options: have the unit repaired or do the work yourself.

Last and least likely, a problem with the power supply components (voltage regulators, etc). If your ps2 is not under warranty, that could cost you to fix, or might not even be worth it.

Good luck!

Ps3 stays on only for 5 minutes then shuts off


Check to make sure the vents are not blocked by dust, debris, or thick carpeting as this can cause overheating.

After turning on my ps3 for like 15-20 minutes,


it is turning off? if no, then no overheating.
fans will be on while you're playing, it's normal.

check the game position and place, there are something blocking the air?
leave some space around to allow the ps3 to "breath".

PS3 freezes but sound still works


when it happens, give it some time, like 5-10 min. the ps3 is most likely accessing the hard drive, and if it is, shutting down in the middle of it could currupt your hdd. if it doesnt work, even after 10 min, call sony tech support, but if it works fine afterwords, i dont see why it would be neccessary. unless it gets worse, i think you should just turn it on, turn it off after a few min, then back on, and then play.

My PS3 shuts down only on PS3 games


The first thing I would do is a System Update!!!!!! This happened to me playing Army of Two until I Updated it. With games and Some Blu-Rays (Iron Man I had the same problem) require updates to play and function properly! Just hook up to your Network (Router or Modem) Create a Playstaion store account (To the Right on the PS3 Crossbar) Then go to the 2nd to left on the Crossbar, Then all the way up. Grab the update and you should be Good! This happened Twice to me, So now I always update and No probs! Good Luck!

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.
