Try using compressed air to blow into the air vents.
Or use your vacuum hose on the air vents and the fans.

How do I get my playstation 3 concole to stop over heating and shuting down?


Hello sugarplum 29,
Unfortunately with a lot of consumer electronics, especially video game consoles, the internal components and heat syncs deteriorate over time. My suggestion to you would be to make sure your console is in a well ventilated location away from anything that could be keeping heat close to it. Also, make sure the room you're playing in isn't become hot from all the heat expulsion from any electronics on, as this may cause the problem. If the problem persists, you may need to seek warranty work or a repair.
Hope this helps!

In the middle of a game my N64 will freeze without warning and in the top right corner of my tv screen is a small white or red line.


Well it might be over heating buy dust dust causes video game consoles to heat 10 times faster than their normal heating rates trust me i know then. So use those canned dusters for computers to clean then out. Thats how i clean my consoles out and i don't recomend doing it if you don't know what your doing.

My N64 console keeps on frezzing during the middle of game play I don't think that shes over heating or is dirty because I just cleaned her out and play it with a fan blowing on it. Could it be the av...


Well video game consoles are sensitive to heat and its an over heating problem if the ac adapter smells burnt than its possible that the adapter isnt sending out the right signal to the system or if the voltage is off it will cause stalling. So try cleaning out the gamepacks and put the gamepacks in halfway instead of all the way in. Or there might be a problem with the console. Dust causes video game consoles to overheat 10 times faster than there normal heating rates.

Hi,
0102 Error in the "Digital Backbone" (CPU/GPU/RAM) is usually caused by a cold solder joint between the GPU and the mainboard.
There are two theories to fixing this. One deals with the "X" clamps that hold down the chips. The other involves re-Heating the chips. DO NOT attempt either of these if your console is still under warranty. If your console is still under warranty return it to the store where it was purchased or call Microsoft to have it replaced.
Thank you!

2 red light error heatsinks wont heat up


2 red flashing lights means your console overheated you just needed to let it cool and or check the fans and other cooling components, and by the sounds of it not heating up you have cooked the chips by trying to fix it so you console is basically a paper weight now, sorry

My Xbox keeps switching its self off after five minutes and then two red lights are coming on on the console. Do you know what would be causing this?


Yes I do . Some times when console take a fall or get bump hard
it will dislodged the heat sink from the C.P.U. breaking the thermal
seal . Then the console will over heat in 1-5 min .

The Fix is simple . open the unit up and press down evenly
and firmly on the large heat sink to re-seat it to the C.P.U.
leave it open turn it on and repeat if it over heats again ,
sometime it takes a few attempts .
