Drücke den Knopf und schau den Staubflocken zu wie sie wegfliegen. Ganz weg kriegst du den Staub nicht damit. Hartnäckige Reste bleiben noch auf der Hauptplatine oder dem Kühlkörper. Führe den Test so alle 1-2 Monate durch, das erhöht die Lebensdauer des Geräts. Staub und Schmutz sind eine Hauptursache für Störungen an Spielkonsolen.

    • Beachte: die Kerze steht nur zu Demozwecken hinter der PS3. Grundsätzlich darfst du keine offenen Flammen in die Nähe der Konsole bringen. Das Video dauert nur 30 sec, ich habe mein System ausgeschaltet bevor ich aufnahm, damit ich unter das Zeitlimit kam.

    • Schaue nach, ob im CD Laufwerk wirklich keine CD ist.

    • Wenn du PS3 Original hast musst du sie erst ganz von Standby ausschalten. Auf der Rückseite befindet sich der Hauptschalter. Drücke erst die Auswurftaste und lege dann den Hauptschalter um.

    • Wenn du die PS 3 Slim hast musst du den Stecker aus der Steckdose ziehen. Drücke zuerst die Auswurftaste und ziehe dann den Netzstecker.

    • Das System wird sich einschalten und in wenigen Sekunden wirst du den Lüfter mit höheren Drehzahlen als normal laufen hören. Das sollte etwa 15 - 20 sec lang dauern. In der Demonstration läuft der Lüfter 16,96 sec.

    • Wenn alles vorbei ist wird beim PS 3 Original die rote Netzleuchte blinken. Der PS 3 Slim schaltet sich ganz aus.

    My fan isn't working anymore

    • Beim PS 3 Original musst du jetzt den Netzschalter erst ganz auf "Aus" stellen, dann auf Standby. Fertig!

    • Beim PS 3 Slim musst du erst den Netzstecker ziehen, dann wieder einstecken. Fertig!

    • Beachte: Diesen Aus- Einschaltvorgang musst du durchführen, damit das System zurückgesetzt wird. Sonst lässt sich das Gerät nicht einschalten. Viel Spaß!

    Thanks a bunch. Mine only ran for about 10 seconds but the but the fan isn't loud anymore. :)

Führe diesen Test alle 1-2 Monate durch, halte die PS3 frei von Ablagerungen und verlängere so die Lebensdauer.

Doesn't work on superslim eject button just releases the tray not electrical

taipancorbett - Antwort


Thanks for informing me. Honestly, I've seen this done with the original and personally preformed it on the slim and assumed that it worked with the super slim as well. Looks like I made an ass out of myself. I'll make the corrections to the guide.

How can we do that on the super slim model? Or what the other option to do this self cleaning?

Tarek Jundi - Antwort

I'm afraid I don't know how to preform this test on the super slim. I would search youtube/web searches.

My ps3 will not self clean. I have the original system, and when I switch it back on, it just beeps, but the fan does not run

CJ Kramer - Antwort

It works on the slim! Just gotta unplug, hold, replug! Once its done as you said, unplug and replug!

Georgia Sproule - Antwort

Of course it does :) it just doesn't work on the SUPER slim (CECH-4000)

Tom -

These fans last long even after much abuse. I just never understood why my CECH-2501 makes 3 beeps during the beginning of the test whereas my CECH-2001 and CECH-2101 doesn't ?

I've had my Ps3 for about 5 years, and I've just decided that I wanted to clean out the dust out of my systems to ensure they live longer. Do you recommend still doing this to clean my Ps3 after so many years of neglecting the dust?

Steven T (Archbreaker) - Antwort

Absolutely! It should easily remove any loose dust bunnies that are residing inside your system but it won't get the stubborn stuff. You will have to gut the console if you really want to clean it completely.

Navy Vet 2015 -

Furthermore, if you're interested in dust prevention within your systems I would highly recommend purchasing dust covers for them.

Foamy Lizard products are form fitting to the PS4/XB1. I prefer these to Digital Deck Covers but they don't make them for older systems. If you have older systems you want covered, i.e. X360/PS3 etc, defer to the second link. eBay also has a great selection of custom covers for various systems.

I’ve had my PS3 for 6 years and I haven’t done this before. Should I do this more than once to make sure it’s clean? I just did it right now and it was very loud and shaking like crazy, probably because of its old age. I’ve had this slim since release the only problems I’ve come to face with is me having to hold it up vertically so it could read discs, I was hoping this would change that.

Alex Orozco - Antwort

The fan ramps up at its maximum RPM so it's not uncommon for the systems noise level to increase during this process. However, my system has never rattled like you are describing. I wouldn't think preforming the test again would do any harm but if it's a real concern I'd recommend taking the system apart and cleaning it. The fan test will only remove loose dust/dirt/debris from the system. Anything that's been sitting in there for years will require a small amount of elbow grease to clean this filth.

You could try taking the top cover off, preforming the test and see if you can locate what might be causing the shaking.

Navy Vet 2015 - Antwort

I would recommend also that if like me you've had your ps3 for a good could of years and never got it cleaned you have the thermal paste inside the system (it regulates the heat factor to avoid system from over heating) checked and change if need be. I did and found that the thermal paste in my system had dried out due to to dust build up

kusa mata - Antwort

Our system will flash a message while in game play saying it's overheating then it shuts off shortly after but the odd thing is we won't even be paying it that long before it does that. Would this cleaning fix that or do you know what the problem could be that's causing it & how we can fix it ?

Brittney Bass - Antwort

Brittney, it’s hard to say if this will solve the problem. It’s possible your system needs more work than a cleaning. However, start with this tutorial. If it still overheats take the top lid off and hit it with a can or air to remove further debris. If cleaning the system doesn’t resolve your issue then I’d advise seeking help in another repair guide.

Navy Vet 2015 -

Was really helpful, thanks. I have a ps3 slim (or 2 for that matter. One broken one works). Anyways on the older one the red light goes out after this but on the new one it blinks for some reason. Dunno why but i thought it's funny so i shared it XD

Fluffyshade LP - Antwort

I did this and now my ps3 won't read discs can anyone help?

Micbel Fraser - Antwort

I'm afraid I haven't had this issue. Unsure what might have caused this. Have you attempted to open and investigate the problem?

Navy Vet 2015 -

there's no ejection button on my Slim

Tim Tolbert - Antwort

Then go find a replacement. You've got higher priorities before preforming this

Navy Vet 2015 -

This is fake I think because it's not working on my ps3 slim and I'm freaking out

xristoskiouftis - Antwort

That's a bold claim seeing as 28 others have marked that they have successfully followed these steps. 75k have viewed this page and while some can't get it to work, none have made the claim this is fake. If it was I'm quite sure ifixit would remove my post.

Navy Vet 2015 -

Has anybody figured out how to do this on the super slim model yet?? Been searching everywhere, no luck so far.
