How to repair PS3 Blinking Red Light Problem?

If you are looking to solve the problem of PS3 flashing red, you've come to the right place because that is exactly what is learned in this article. The PS3 does not have many problems as the Xbox 360 has, but like any other device, which has few. At first it was thought that the game "Call of Duty 4", also known as COD4 was responsible, but this is not true, because a few months later people without the game became the problem of light flashing red.

If you do not know what you do, you should contact Sony to find out what the problem exactly, but it is usually due to overheating of the drive. Just to be safe, do not open the PS3 on its own. If you have no warranty or expired, it can cost around $ 140 to repair your PS3.

You should not be disappointed and sad when your PS3 is flashing red light problem. Most of the time, there is a problem with your disk or hard drive itself is broken.

Quickly be resolved by replacing the PS3 while the disc. To do this you must remove the hard drive and then once again placed inside the PS3 in the same way. Usually, this is the answer to the problem of the PS3 flashing red light. If red light does not go very far in implementing the method so you will have a new unit or in some cases a new PS3, ay!
But do not worry because even if you have to get a new unit can be anything. Up to $ 50 you work. And the odds are very small, you must get a new PS3, because the method I said repairs to 9 / 10 times! This will allow you to return to the game!

system just shuts off and red light flashes constantly

It is called the red light of death, Try removing and reconnecting the hard disk, if is still there then only the service center can fix it, it is a power IC problem. If you put 150 USD in the US then you can get a new PS3. I did exactly that.
