PS5 Playstation 5 Overheating Noisy Fan Full service
Does your Playstation 5 fan sound really noisy either in game or on the dashboard, with it getting louder and louder?
Do you find that playing games just for the Playstation 5 cause your console to shut down, but PS4 games work fine?
A PS5 will under normal conditions regulate the fan speed to cool down the console and then slow it down again once the consoles tempertaure is acceptable for the APU Chip.
However, when your console has a noisy fan, this indicates that the console cannot regulate the temperature normally and therefore ramps the fan high to try to cool itself down. Ultimately this will cause your console to shutdown whilst playing a game.
This is a more common repair now that the Playstation 5 console's are out of warranty from launch date.
This problem is mostly caused by the thermal compound requiring renewing and the internal heatsink being blocked with dust and therefore not allowing the console to cool itself down.
This is indicating your console is overheating.
To Fix this fault, we will have to Fully service your console
The Full Service involves
- Stripping down your PS5 Console
- Cleaning the original Liquid Metal Thermal compound from the APU chip and replace this with brand new High Performance Liquid Metal thermal compound.
- Replace the internal Thermal strips inside the console.
** Note **
This repair doesnt involve a fan replacement, if a fan replacement was require, then this would be an additional charge.
