I know, this forum blah blah...

But I might get help.

So yeah, the date on my PS3 keeps resetting all the time. Any idea why? Is the battery dying or something?

There must be one for the CMOS.

Yeah, there is a battery in the ps3. It is like the ones in PC's so you probably have to replace it, but depending on your version of the ps3 it can be a bitch to replace if you don't have the necessary tools.

You really need the PS3 to tell you the time? Don't you have an actual clock in your house?

If the battery on the BIOS chip was dead ur settings would just be reset every time u turned on the PS3 (iirc it's b/c the BIOS chip uses volatile memory and needs power).

My guess is that ur PS3 is overheating because the thermal paste is all dried up and it's shutting itself down to keep cool (modern processors can start melting themselves within a minute or so if they have no cooling).


edit: maybe i misunderstood ur post. do u mean it shuts down after starting up, or it just constantly reboots in an endless cycle

FUCK nevermind i am retarded. ya replace ur damn cmos battery
OH YEAH? WELL ATLEAST I GET PAID TO SUCK DICK

Your battery must be dead. You can replace if your warranties expired already. It's one of those flat silver looking batteries, the ones in hearing aids and such.

The 360 doesn't save the time & date, when you pull the power plug it resets unless it connects to LIVE to set it again, at least my phat version does, doubt they changed it for the slim, but I suppose they could have..
