Is my PS3 overheating?


Hi everyone. So I have the fat model PS3 and I’ve had it for almost 2 years now and it’s been running with No problems until last night. It wouldn’t connect to the internet despite my router being perfectly functional (I could connect with my laptop and phone) and an Ethernet cable being plugged in. I managed to get it to connect by turning everything off and unplugging everything including the router for 2 minutes and then plugging it back in. It worked fine until last night it turned itself off twice. No YLOD or anything it just turned off and the red standby light came on. It didn’t turn off completely because when I turned it back on it went straight to the main menu. Is it just overheating? How should I fix it? Thanks in advance

  1. seriously? psn is down for maintenance so that is why you can’t get online

    if your console was overheating it could still get online , but you’d have a loud fan and eventually see a message that your console was overheated and needed to shut down.
