Hello, my console has started giving me some issues and i will describe it the best i can.
It first started a few days ago. I was a few hours into some PSO online gameplay, when suddenly the screen went black and the sound was gone. The console led was still illuminated and fan was still spinning. I held my hand by the fan and didn't feel anymore heat than normal. I opened the lid and felt for heat but there wasn't any. I felt the bottom of the console and it was warm, but not hot. I powered off then back on, the led came on and the vmu beeped, but the screen stayed black. After letting it sit for more than an hour, i powered on and it worked again like normal.
The next few days everything was fine and i could play for many hours with no problems.
Yesterday the problem returned. I was about 40 minutes into a game and it happened again. This time and the previous time both happened during a livestream. I let the console sit for a couple hours and it worked again like normal after sitting. However, this time it only lasted about 5 minutes before it happened again for a third time.
This third time happened when i was online in PSO in a team with another PSO character on my PC. When it happened, i was able to look over at my DC character on my PC monitor. It was still there, but it wouldn't move or anything when i pressed any buttons on the controller. I'm my mind this rules out an A/V problem.
Console details: NTSC-U VA1, GDEMU w/ 12v removed, noctua fan and DCHDMI.
Thanks in advance.
