My ps3 is randomly shutting off

3 Replies 829 Views Created 19-01-2013

I have the old fat ps3 and I will try to play a game but it just shuts off all by itself after about 10 mins of gameplay. I tried vaccuming out all the fans with a low powered vaccum but it still shuts off. Sometimes instead of shutting off it will just completely freeze. Does anyone know what my problem might be? Or how much money it would cost to fix. Please HELP

When your PS3 is turning off, is it turning off with a red flashing light, or is it just going completely dead with no lights at all?

It turns out that it was just the game I was playing (skate 3) that was causing my ps3 to turn off. But when it did turn off if just turned off, the green light just turned red and that was it.
