I just got my PS3 about 2 weeks ago and it was a Sony refurb 80gb 2 usb PS3. Multiple times, when I am using it, the PS3 turns off for what seems like no reason, mostly when I am playing games, but even when I am in the web browser or Playstation Store. Then I flip the switch off then on. The red light shows but when I power it on, it turns off automatically before the fan even goes. After anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours it will work again, but then shut off after a short time. I don’t know why it does this and my only hunch is that it is a power supply problem, but I don’t know. I have heard of it being like that but the only info on power supply problems I can find are for PS3 slims while my PS3 is a fat. Anybody know how to fix this.
My hunch for why it is a power supply problem comes from: [url is not allowed]
