renzokata: I tried this for the first time ever. My ps3 phat I've had for 5 years now, bought it used. Well I cleaned the dust out and everything and would turn it on and the fan would start steadily getting louder, within seconds or so, just from being on the main menu. It's been on for about a few minutes and I've never heard it this quiet. Cleaned the dust out, unclogged the ports, nothing worked, this did. Thanks! And for everyone else, don't listen to negative crap on here. Try it, it takes only a couple seconds and it worked!
Aniket Jagtap: this trick also fixes fan noise issue
Carlos Perez : Thanx it actually worked
jlcame094: guys... dont do this crap. only a vacuum cleaner will remove the dust. doing this will just give you some more hours or days before it overheats again. the main problem with this is that this isint an "auto clean feature", its to test several functions on the ps3, like the fan test to top speed and eject the disc. THIS FAN TEST CAN CAUSE STATIC BUILDUP IF TOO MANY DUST IS IN THERE AND FRY YOUR SYSTEM. you have been warned.
KoSSp FlooR: I did it But no work on my 60gb ps3
Bernardo Mendonça: U deserve my like and sub
Jordan Sullivan: make sure your holding the eject button and then plug in the power cord then it will begin the cleaning processs
Dameon Cobb: Modern Warfare 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brian Camposano: Yeah it works thx!!
Adeel Hussain: The ps3 fan is always on its just that the fan is going like crazy fast when you do that thing. My ps3's fan always on just slow.
Patrick Kearns: thankyou thank you thank you
Grayson Wolf: This is not a cleaning setting. Sony has stated that this is potentially dangerous as it can burn the motherboard inside the system. The fan test was designed to overheat your system and check the fans, not clean it out.
Brent De pooter: It workt man now i can play gta back thanks😁😁😁😁
Gerald Jones: Thanks bro your cool
psychoxgamer11: So I did it and it worked but when I turn it n the fans start and everything but slowly die down and my pps3 turns off soon afterwards what do?
Hussaka4 henry: that not repair?
