I was playing a game and then the power was cut off and than when the power was back on i wanted to turn on the playstation 3 and it went on but the light was blinking only green... is it my hard disk,...

No, a blinking green light has nothing to do with your hard disk. I have encountered a few similair problems with my own PS3 and one thing has always solved those problems. hold down the power button on the front of your console for about 8-10 seconds, this will automatically reboot your device and restore it to the factory settings. remember, the green light is your friend, its the Yellow light you need to be cautious of.

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.

Whats wrong

does this only happen with CoD4? If so you may have a faulty disk. Goto your local blockbuster and rent CoD4 and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you need to RMA your ps3 877-253-SONY and request a RMA.

If it doesn't you got a bad game disk.

Multiple (3) ps3 and call of duty 4 in 1 house

On the Ps3 that isn't working, go into the settings and see if there is something under it that is prevent invitations or friend requests. It will probably be under parental controls or network settings. If someone else hosts the game can that Ps3 join. Also try and get the messed up one connected by ethernet cable and not wireless, it may be cutting out as there are 3 ps3's and probably multiple computers hogging the signal.
