It can probably be repaired for about $100-150.

Naaa... buy local and save your dealer's showroom from permanent extinction!

I have a local mom and pop video game shop which does their hardware repairs onsite. A lot of computer repair shops are also diversifying and moving in to console warranty repair, I have one of those in my area too. But first, I would call Sony's technical support and see if they have any solutions for a quick fix; the problem may just be something simple like overheating due to clogged fans or heatsinks.

I still have the original release PS3. No problems too date, it is starting to hum or whine now though. But as long as it holds out until december for the PS4 i'm good.
that's impressive for a 6 - 7 year old system (at least in this day and age of early death electronics).

As 8086 suggested it's time for some maintenance, you could save the $100 if your comfortable enough to disassemble and have the tools for the PS3. If not than finding a repair shop would be you best bet just make sure they will change the thermal paste along with cleaning out the PS3.

Re: Ps4

If you look at the top of the gaming forum you'll see stickies that cover teardown of both fat and slim as well as changing thermal paste.
