I fixed mine, I just got a hairdryer put it on max and swiped it across the back vents about 5 cm away from it and put the ps3 in the box vents up and then let it cool down and there you go fixed.

And then it overheats a few days-weeks-months later and breaks again.

Pspros are the only people that make sure the problem doesn't occur again, there aren't guides around for that. Plus they give a 3month warranty and paper work to get the cash back. So it's free anyways.

Normally it does come back. Pspros fix it in a way that it doesn't.

My original 60gb is still going strong thanks to them. Only problem it has is the fans are SO loud it's unbearable.

Im not sure mate, my PSN is rainer83, whats yours?

Ill probably end up buying both, not a massive fan of either but will give both a go.

Looking forward to getting into Dead Island when i get my PS back, and also Deus Ex. I did do a few hours on Deus Ex but i will probably start it all over again as it has been awhile now.
