A key question that I find about PS3 repair in Toronto is, “why did my Playstation 3 just shut down and stop working while I was playing?” The most likely answer to this question is that your PS3 is overheating. If you’re playing your PS3 for long periods of time, this can lead to heat build in the console
The Sony PS3 like so many other electronics doesn’t operate well with extreme heat conditions. There can be many reasons why your PS3 is overheating. The number one reason for any electronics to start overheating is too much dust built up inside causing the internal fans not to work properly. You should always try to keep your electronics dust free at all times.
The first step to solve your PS3 overheating problem is blowing as much dust out of it with a can of compressed air, doing this weekly will help the fans circulate air more efficiently, keeping your console cooler.
Reasons other than dust build up that can cause this overheating problem are, insufficient amount of or dried out thermal grease, internal fan failure or even a faulty heat sensor. If cleaning out all the dust from inside does not help solve or improve your overheating problems, it may be time for you to consider repairing your PS3.
You do have a few options when considering taking your PS3 in for repair. You can contact Sony and send your Playstation directly to Sony for repair. The biggest disadvantage here is that it can be very expensive, $150 or more to send your PS3 to Sony for repair especially if your warranty has run out. The other disadvantage is that it will take Sony 6 weeks to do the repair.
Most people don’t want to spend that amount of money or send their Playstation away for so long. That’s why most people decide instead to perform a PS3 repair themselves. Too fix your own PS3 problems most of the time is easier than you think.
