I know this has been addressed before but i am not sure if it is quite the same problem, as i can still use my PS3. It has happened twice now, i am playing Dirt2, -both times it has been in the first race, so the PS3 has been on for maybe 5 minutes or so, which would rule out overheating- and then the PS3 just turns off without making a noise, and then the red light starts blinking. The controller wont turn the system back on but pressing the on button on the PS3 works. Then everything seems to run fine.
Is this the start of something bad? I am thinking maybe i am better to get a new one and try to sell this one off.
It is a 40gb console now has a 500GB hd in it, and it is on a hard surface with a fan blowing on it.
