Ok I tried this just for kicks cause im having a little problem with over heating. so on this video he turns the ps3 off by button and switch then turns on the switch while hold the eject button he gets one beep from the ps3 well I get three and then nothing. Well my I also just add that his fan sound like a hair dryer lol. I think this is fake and I will just use a air compressor like always.
Works fine for me on my 40gb PS3, makes a very loud fan noise, and I can really feel the air from the back of the console. Have you tried holding the eject button down until you hear the fans start going?
In my experience it takes about 4 seconds.
