I have had my slim for a few months under 3 years and fortunately still have my extended warranty cover. However I have read the ps3 switching itself off can be something to do with the power supply lead and/or overheating, rather than the actual ps3.
When my slim goes off , every light goes off and it wil not come back on straightaway It has done this playing 2 different games and also last night with no game in at all just at the menu.I do not play it excessively ( prior to last night It was 6 nights ago when i last used it)
I keep my ps3 pretty well ventilated and was hoping someone with far more knolwedge than myself on ps3's could give me advice on what to do next.
Thank you for the reply. I meant to put in my first post I actually watch quite a bit of tv/ movies thru my ps3 and seem to have no problems.
This would back up what you said about the fan as I am sure a game with all the loading up takes more out of the ps3 than running a tv downloaded from the USB, would you agree?
Also any idea on price of the fans i presume I would have to get someone to install it too.
