Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Turns on and after a few minutes the image disapear

I have this playstation3 since last december and it started that after like 20 minutes the image disapear. Now it wont last more than 3 minutes and sometimes it doesn''t play or show the image at all. I can hear the fan running so I guess that is not overheating and the room has a/c all the time in the summer. Please advice. I sent the equipment for Sony warranty repairs and they didn't honor the repair saying that the factory seal was tampered or broken and that's a big lie from them I never touched the seal because I knew that I was going to loose my warranty. The equipment was 7 month old when I sent it, and when it came back the top cover was loose, the factory seal was not there, and some missing screws. I cleaned the equipment before sending it and it was not like that, everhing was untouched and I never tried to open or fix since I learned that lesson a few yars back with another electronic device. My equipment is the 80gb.

Yesterday I droped my Playstation3 slim, and after that it won't turn on. Or, it starts. But after about 3 sec, it turns off again.. What can be wrong? Can I fix it by myself? And what should I do?

While hard (fixed) drives are more tolerant today than a decade ago, they are precision devices and subjecting them to hundreds of Gs will wipe out sectors. I suspect the unit shuts down because the drive is no longer capable of locating the required files to start up.

Turns on and works great...after about 10 minutes it doesnt work.

it is probably because your xbox is over heatng and you have a bad or loose wire in your xbox, try to put a fan facing the back of it before u turn it on

ok 1 of the only solutions i can think of is to update ur software try updating to the new version.
if u already did update and thats when it started "cutting out" then find a web site to 'downgrade' it

Playstation3 wont work after a couple of minutes

I suggest leaving it alone until you contact Sony, as you may make the problem worse.

You should have a warranty on your PS3, even if it was a gift. Contact Sony as soon as possible and get an exchange.


Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
