This just started happening about a week ago. My system crashes after about 30 minutes of use or so. I’ll wait about a minute or so, turn it back on, but there is no display on my tv. When I hold down the button to power down the PS3, it doesn’t turn off – I have to switch it off from the back. If I wait several hours the PS3 will turn on and there will be display, but again it will crash after 30 minutes or so and again when I turn it on there will be no display on the tv. I just came back from a 3 day vacation and have turned on the ps3 20 mins. ago. It seems ok so far, but we’ll see what happens.
Anyways, has this happened to anyone and if so how did you solve it? Did it go away on its own or did you have to send it in for service? I’d rather not spend the $150 to get it repaired if its something simple I can fix myself. Yes, I did go over the troubleshooting guide on Sony’s site and it hasn’t really helped. Thanks in advance for any help!
