Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, i know there are afew problems with the power lights going from red to green then yellow then flashing red, unfortunatly mine doesn't do this. If you plug it in the red standby light comes on, but as soon as you press the power on it clicks and all lights go off as if the power unit has tripped out? After this it will take 5 mins of leaving it off before the standby light will come back on. I have tryed a good power unit and the same happens, no visable signs of faults on the boards, heat sink seems ok. Do they have a temprature sensor somewhere that could be faulty?
Mine did that and it really pised me of, sony told me to turn the power switch onthe back of the console on, when the stand by light comes on to push and hold the on button for at least 3 seconds until you hear a second set of beeps. This however didn`t work so I sent it back to Sony Australia and got it fixed up no worries.

Power off the unit using the toggle
switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle
switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject
your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not
the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the
memory card slots.
