PS3 Slim switching itself off

1 replies 116 views Edited Oct 6, 2012

Hi all, I have a problem with my Slim PS3. Everytime I turn it on, it turns itself off after around a minute of being on. All I know about it is it isn't an error with the Power Supply, I've done the tweak that most people on google recommend, and I've also tried replacing it with a perfectly fine supply, still the same thing. It's incredibly frustrating, so any help would be highly appreciated

|Welcome to the PS Community.


Have you check to see if you, out of curiosity, activated the Power Save Settings?

Note:these settings activate after a certain amount of inactivity. If you are active, as in, you are playing/interacting with the system as it turn itself off then something else is the problem.


Go to Settings/Power Save Settings and make sure the options under System Auto Off are set to Off
