Just like the old bulky style PS3 console the slim has a secret hidden function
that only a few people know about.

This secret test allows you to run the consoles fan upto full speed and this helps blow out some of the dust trapped inside your console.

The full speed fan test also reveals any potential problems with your consoles fan such knocking, grinding or balance issues; for example if a fan blade had broken off.

Here’s how to perform the fan test & self clean step by step

1) Power up your console normally (press power/standby button) and remove any games inside the unit.

2) Power down the console normally using the power button.

3) Unplug the mains power cord from the back of the console.

4) Hold the eject button down and plug the mains cable back into your console.

5) The console will power straight up and you’ll hear the fan spinning at full speed.

6) The ps3 will shut down after 15 seconds.

7) Unplug the mains power cable from the back and plug back in after a few seconds.

8) You can now start up your console normally.

Congratulations you’ve just completed the PS3 slim fan test & self clean process.

The video below shows the same process.
