Take it in for service or what u du is go to the Sony website, and somewhere, and call the number on the screen. ill just tell u it right now. --- 954-345-7669, and tell them what happen.

They will probably ask for u 2 ship it back to the industry, for further repair.

I was playing a game and it just shut off. It went to a red light on the left side. If I try to turn it on, the left light goes green, then yellow and right back to red and never engages.


If it continues to blink a red light when it turns off, this is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know). This is caused by the unit overheating causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

This is known as the yellow light of death for the ps3 (ironic i know because it blinks a red light). This can be caused by the unit overheating causing solder on the main board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

Red light green light yellowlight red blinking light


From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.
