ps3 shutting off in the middle of the game

1 replies 41 views Edited Dec 10, 2012

Hope someone can help! I done a full format on the ps3 yesterday because it kept shutting down by itself. I still had plenty of space on the storage system, I even took it apart down to the mother board and cleaned the fan and cooling plates as well as the rest of the system. The ps3 has started shutting down again????? Anyone have any ideas????????  Thanks

Did you put new thermal paste on the heatsinks after cleaning them? If not your PS3 is shutting itself down because it's overheating & if you really are running it without t-paste betwwen the CPU/GPU & heatsinks you probably ruined it as well.
