So I turn on my ps3 and it roared like a jet engine and was smoking orblowing out dust from the back ( couldn't tell I was freaking out). I paniced and pulled the plug and restarted it. It works fine now but now I'm worried. Should I open it up and clean it or just clean the outside of it ? pale

+1 for poor you . lol That's awful, look for the thread someone made here a while back about how to safely remove your hard drive to clean dust out without erasing everything. I need that thread too since I've never cleaned it out... I'll look as well.

It sounds like it ran a fan test (or whatever they call it) look it up on youtube, but you're supposed to to something to start it not just turn it on... Also Sony advises not to do it. That's weird it did that by just turing it on..... I would just cross your fingers everytime you turn it on.
