Why does it turn itself off erratically?
My PS3 slim randomly and very frequently shuts itself off. It won't even show it is in standby.(History about the device is that it has had 2 nasty falls from the entertainment center due to accidents. There is no external damage visible.)
At times we can get it to come on and stay on for a length of time that is random as well. Other times we can push the button 100 times and it will not come on and stay on. We have opened it and cleaned it and watched what happened when we turned it on. The fan turns on and doesn't make any strange noises or anything, but within a few seconds it shuts itself off completely again. We are getting very discouraged. We have been to several blogs and youtube videos without any real solutions. If it is the power source how do we check it out to be sure that is what it is? We don't want to try and replace functional parts and potentially cause more issues. PLEASE HELP!!!
