Get your 40GB PS3 to clean itself

Today marks a rare occurrence. Someone has discovered a feature of the PS3 that we have never witnessed before. Apparently, the 40 gigabyte PS3 can perform a fan test which will remove the dust from the innards of your system. We’ve placed the ‘how to’ video below.

Once again, this only works with the 40GB SKU. We have no idea what will happen if you attempt this with one of the other models, but we don’t recommend it. Anyway, if you want to clean your 40 gig or make it sound like a 360 for a minute, give this cleaning feature a whirl.
