can you guys help me
my friend has a ps3 when he plays it it beeps once then shuts down and u have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work and it only shuts down when u play games though
and it wont shut down unless you put a game in
i'd tell him to take it back to the shop for an exchange
no my bad it starts up perfectly just shuts down after u play a game for awhile and it beeps once then powers down and its a 2001a model and hes tring to sell it to me for 25 dollars and i was wondering if i could fix it if i bought it

& update your other thread!
i havent come across a single beep and shut down before
if its been opened in the past then i suppose its possible the ribon connector for the power eject board is not in propperly and vibration from the bdvd drive is enough to move this cable just enough to short the power traces and so the ps3 thinks the power button has been pressed.
if its on cfw and this is a back up game then it could be anything
with it working anyway for a while then it should be fixable.
first thing i'd do is
clean it up propperly.
change the heat transfer paste
and carefully build it back up checking every connector as i went for anything faulty.
if it is just a loose connector then cleaning and re-building could solve it.
does it do the same fault while watching a dvd?
Thats a ylod pre sign, buy it for 25$ take it to a computer repair store local and find one that can do a reball on it. Its usually a 60$ cost but fixes the ps3 permenatly cause Sony used cheap paste and solder, the reball will change out the solder for the right kind and they should put on top of line thermal paste.
Got mine reballed locally for 35$ and asked what paste they use and was told arctic silver....can't get any better then that for the ps3 ^_^
If you wont buy it, I will gladly buy it for 25$ ^_^ thats a steal :-) especially for a easy fix :-) bro ^__
I agree with snkysnake02 with the ylod.
