mate i love my ps3 and would never get an xbox or any of that crap but its getting stupid now both my ps3s were treated great and they have just broke for no apparent reason why should i be expected to pay like 130 quid to get it fixed when its probably going to brake again in a years time they need to start making them better so they last longer than a year. half the folk on my friends list are on there 2nd ps3s because of thisDecember 19, 2009 at 9:28 pm #53146Ratchet525Member
my ps3 has lasted 2 years.. idk man maybe cory's right, you just have shit luck or so.December 19, 2009 at 9:38 pm #53148KnoxieMember
i suggest you dont repair it because it does have a tendency to brake again as i found mine to do and get a slim (which is perfect)!December 19, 2009 at 10:50 pm #53162Domba_carMember
If your PS3 doesn't have atleast 15cm free on the left and right side, sweep the dust every week or so. I have 20cm on both sides and still sweep the dust, I love my PS3 lol.December 19, 2009 at 11:23 pm #53165xxKnightmarExxMember
I know what you mean, I wipe the dust off of my console at least once a day, and you are better off getting a slim finch, chances are it's gonna break again (trust me).December 22, 2009 at 5:02 pm #53441NodanodMember
have 2 back this guy up tbh – Teated my console with a lot of TLC. but broke. Sony sent me a dodgy refurbished one (with only 3 months warranty) that was a joke.
Just bought my slim, but also went HMV and bought 3 year warranty for £25. not riskin itDecember 22, 2009 at 6:45 pm #53448BigWoopMagazineMember
Mine stopped reading discs at one point, but I got it refurbished, and it has worked great ever since. Like any other piece of electronic hardware though, theres always a chance for malfunction. The more complicated the device, the higher the chances. Most of the time, its due to overheating, but thats usually not actually the fault of the device, but dust, like previous posters mentioned. If you get a new one, dont just keep the area around it clean, but get some air duster to blow the dust out of it from time to time. I have to do this with my laptop, or it overheats and shuts itself down.December 23, 2009 at 12:53 am #53489The GeneralMember
I've had my 60GB for a little over 2 years. It's under my tv in the stand, but I have a little 6 inch fan that I have plugged in right infront of it and to the side, that I use ALL the time lol, and it keeps it fairly cool as it blows down the right side (as you look at the system) circles around behind, and pushes warm air out the left side. When I first got it, it was pretty warm down there when I would go check after playing for over an hour, so I had to “install” the little fan next to it to keep it safe.December 23, 2009 at 8:18 pm #53553NodanodMember
Yeah, my 60gb used 2 jet out loads of hot air.
i had 2 put the tele very loud 2 sound over the loud fans . lolDecember 26, 2009 at 4:14 pm #53798

has my ps3 since release and never had a problem with it….
i think just because you've had some bad luck, doesn't mean the system itself is becoming a joke.
in fact, i believe the two are unrelated…
