Hello everyone, I just got a PS3 off of a friend of mine about a week or two ago, and am having issues. Most of the time, it just plain doesn't want to come on. However, when it does come on, it's only a matter of time before the picture goes all pixilated and the system freezes. My friend told me that he was having this problem with it, but I could have it if i wanted it. He said he thinks that it's the thermal paste that they used between the CPU and the heat sink. I thought thtat if this was the case, i could just get some, and put a little on there myself. Any ideas, or suggestions? my system is one of the 20GB ones that is backwards compatible if that helps.
