PS3 (bought in 2009) is getting loud and you can hear the fans struggling

i have sitting on a shelf, nothing on top or covering it.

I've also experienced game freezing, software freezing, unexpected shut downs, and not to mention how loud it gets.

It also sometimes takes a while for it to shut down, like the fans have to cool off first, then shuts down.

Has anyone else experienced something similar? No way in hell i'm buying another PS3, if this one is dying.

RIP PS3

If it dies with a game inside you will have fun...like me!

Could be something wearing out (electronics tend to do that)...or, it could simply be a matter of being dusty inside & in need of a cleaning.

Sad to say but its dying, it finally died on me in December. Got it reflowed and lived for about a month, took it back and lasted less than that. Just replaced it with a new super slim like 2 weeks ago.
