    So guys that is my problem my PS3 Super Slim shuts itself off by itself.

    I have HFW and PS3HEN installed. And my model of PS3 is 4001B. It is random, sometimes I can play for an hour and then shuts off, sometimes 5 minutes and it shuts itself off, but it always happens.

    At first I thought it was the power supply model APS-330, so I used my multimeter and I got 6,4V out of the 5,5v line, and I also got 16v from the 12v line. I thought, here is the issue, so I replaced the big 450v capacitor on the PSU (not cheap). And sure I got 13v out of the 12v line, and the PS3 lasted a bit more being turned on, I was celebrating! :toot: But THEN nope, the same thing happened, it shut off by itself again!!

    This is driving me nuts, I was about to purchase a new PSU, but I have read that this specific model has this "shuts off by itself" problem, which I have heard it has nothing to do with the PSU!!

    Guys help me please! I don't know what the problem could be! My temperatures are great, because I have measure them, I have replaced the thermal paste, the PS3 is super clean, the bluray is working perfectly, and my HDD is perfect (I tested it on my PC). I just dont know :blink:

    "Any help" would be appreciated guys! I am desperate.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart

    You mean WebMan Mod? Yes, I use webman mod, why? Does Webman has an option that could help me? Cheers and thank you for your time!

    Another thing is that the red light on the PS3 never goes off, and I can always turn the console on again. It simply shuts off when some time passes. For example if I plug an external HDD to load ISOS from it, it always shuts down within a couple of minutes. It lasts more when I play a game from an original disc.

    That is the only other info I can think off.

    Is looking great, I replaced it twice actually, I get very good temps, in the 50's when idle and in the 60's when playing games. It is something else. I saw a guy on Youtube who had to take out the Wifi module completely and then he stopped having problems (on the PS3 Super Slim). But I truly don't know, because in his case, the PS3 would not even turn on (not my case).

    could be remembering wrong, but I remember there being an issue with dynamic fan and hen to where the hypervisor gets confused. it causes the system to shut off from what I remember. I don't know if it's random though, but it could be. it's best to leave the fan speed at a certain rate iirc, not use temp thresholds.

    Thank you godreborn, but sadly these issues where happening even before modding the console... I mean I would have no problem buying a new PSU, but I just "know" that the problem would persist.

    You think that by doing this, the Wifi module would turn off? Ok, I will try. Will write back in 5 minutes, probably the time it takes for the console to turn off by itself.

    I disabled the Internet and also returned webman mod fan speed to syscon and minimum speed to disabled. The PS3 shut itself off in exactly 6 minutes after starting to play a game.

    I really don't know, the real question is, could buying a new PSU fix the problem? Because from what I can tell, the volt measurements are correct.

    Also, a good question would be: Is my PSU giving me the "right" voltage? The 5,5v line is giving me about 6,5v and the 12v line is giving me 13,4v or so. Is this OK?

    have you checked flex ribbon cables on power and eject button board? After repasting a couple of times and putting that cable back and forth several times. One day my PS3 just shut off and wouldn't turn on. It still had red light but nothing happened when I pressed eject and power buttons. I disassembled and checked ribbon cable carefully and there it was. Just where it plugged into MB, 2 traces had broken off. After confirming that I just snipped that part with scissor and plugged it back in. It has been fine since then.

    I understand but no, it has no problem turning on and off using the buttons. My question remains though, are my voltages OK on my PSU? If anyone knows, please share.

    @nashismo the issue is from the 12v supply. Since you said the red standby light stays on. Get a Razor blades or any handy blade, scratch the two contact terminal iron that the power sits on. And also close the teeth and scratch the 12v terminal too of the ps3 power pack. It should fix the problem.

    believe me, I understand. I bought a super slim 12GB a couple weeks ago, and I had nothing but problems with the ps store. I didn't have any mechanical issues, but the ps store wouldn't let me buy anything.

    I just bought one! 2511A, and according to the hack list, it should be hackable. But then I run Minver, and it shows 3.60? Which of course means it is not hackable (CFW).

    Is minver accurate? Thank you for stopping by :)
