So I came home one day and I walked by the PS3 and I noticed the little red light wasn't on. So I checked the power cord and pulled it out and plugged it back in and it came back on. I turned it on and it turned right off. I did that a few times and it finally stayed on but I couldn't hear the fan running or the hard disk turn on, but it finally did after about 2 to 3 minutes and that's just how it's been since.
So everytime I turn it on, it beeps as if I was turning it on normally, it lights up normally but nothing starts actually running for 2 to 3 minutes. I did a quick format and a complete format. I opened it up and checked all the connections and cleaned all the dust out. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do or if someone knows exactly what's wrong with it before I contact Sony. I don't have it under warranty or anything so I'm trying my best. I'm not too saavy on the inner workings of computers but I can take them apart and put them back together correctly and understand what I'm looking at.
