Why my PS3 turns off?
I have a fat PS3 model not backwards compatible. I gave the PS3 a cleaning in the inside and gave a fresh thermal paste in it artic silver 5. And it still shutdowns when I power it on for a few seconds. The red light starts blinking. I'm thinking that the console thinks that it's overheating so it shuts down. Is their a sensor that the PS3 has?
