How to keep PlayStations away from common problems
As I mentioned above, PS is an electronic machine so you can apply all logics/protection technique that you apply for any other similar device. However please ensure proper handling of PS gaming console as it is made up of some delicate fragile components that can get damaged if not handled properly. Below are some techniques/tips that can keep your PlayStation away from various problems and can help you fixing Cinavia codes, YLOD/RLOD lights, overheating affects etc.
- Please ensure to operate PlayStation is optimum temperature. Temperature is the main cause behind most of the PS issues. As temperature increases, it affects the shouldering joints within the console’s circuitry and if anything bad happens with the PS console’s internal circuitry then it will definitely give problems and sometime you even need to replace the entire circuitry/PCB. So please keep your PlayStation in optimum temperature (temperature range of 15-25C is considered good).
- Keep your console away from dust and clean it regularly. Dust in the gaming console jams the air vents and increase the internal temperature. So please keep in mind to give proper care towards dusting and cleaning of your PS3/4 gaming kit. You can use normal brushes for this purpose. Make it a habit to clean your console every third consecutive day. Using this technique, you will never face air valve related problems as there will be enough space for the air to pass in/out from the console.
- Do not use PlayStation during voltage fluctuations. It can damage the internal circuitry which will damage the entire gaming system.
These are some common points that if handled properly can help your gaming device achieve a better life with full functioning and playable units. Also please keep in mind not to use gaming units roughly (remotes or entire console). These are vulnerable to hard shocks so you should not attempt any such thing in any case.
