Default PS3 Is too Hot.

Hello, community. I just turn on my PS3 and got a massage saying " Your PS3 is too hot, turn it off" at the top right corner. Before I even got a chance too turn it off the whole system went down. I heard a big ass boom noise once the system turn on but thought it was something falling behind it. Is my system goona die "( soon? It's a 80GB plays PS1 and PS2 games. It still turn on but I can't get it too stay on. Plenty of room for the vents and it's cool in my room.

Dammit! The damn nosie was the fan blowing out. When I start the system the fan does not even come on. I waited 20mins aleast for to restart it. That was the big boom from the back. I don't how it happen but it sure not coming on me anymore.

No, I don't hear anything. Most of the time I can't hear the fan start up aleast. It had to be it since the big bang came from the back somewhere of my PS3.

What model do you have? it seems awesome that it gave you a massage when you turned it on
in all seriousness, unplug all the wires and leave it for a couple hours to cool down. if you can move it to a cooler place
and yes, back up your saves just incase.

80GB with BC. I give it a shot again, but the fan is seem blown out. Will it come back on even if you leave it off for a while?

I hate the fact that these next gen console overheat, the PS2 and PS1 never seemed to have these problems. I recently had to fork out 200 for a new one due to my 60GB dying on me from the YLOD.

Like most of the people said here just leave it to cool and maybe use a tower fan of some sort to blow some cool air toward your PS3.

Nothing I can advice you to do other than turn it off and leave it for a while. Make sure vents are clear so that it can breathe. If that doesn't work try putting in the fridge next to beer, that'll keep it cool.
