PS3 shuts down ingame!!!

5 replies 84 views Edited Apr 26, 2013

I know this is in the wrong topic, but in the right topic i cant somehow make a new post.

 

Hello,

 

My PS3 shuts down after 4 minuts ingame. Movies i can watch without a problem, but if i start a game it shuts down after 4 minutes or so. There is no light flashing, it shuts down and lights go imediatly dark. I can start the console in about 10 seconds after that again. It is not getting to hot, just normal warm. As far as i know is the fan running. Maybe someone knows how to fix the problem or what the problems could be?

 

Allready thnx,

 

Greetz Ronald H.

Just because it's not hot to the touch, doesn't mean it's not getting hot internally. Have you ever cleaned out the vents?

Is it making any noise? Does the fan sound like it's laboring? Try giving it a good dusting (DO NOT USE WD40) and try again.

what model is it? Regardless, it does sound like its just over-heating. Make sure the vents are clear.

It could be that your PS3 is overheating.

Thnx for the answers.

 

What kind of model... http://content.hwigroup.net/images/products/xl/152584/2/sony_playstation_3_slim_320gb__move__sorcery...

 

It is making no loud noises. Only the "working" noise what it always made.

I try to clean the fan than.

 

Thnx for the help and i let you know if it worked or not.
