I managed to find the sony customer service numer and apparantly the fault is with their last update, so we have been compensated with an 80gb console free of charge- ours is a 60gb.

I have a 60gb Phat Ps3. I recently went to update it to the latest firmware and it downloaded the update fine and was running normally. Then as it was installing the update, the system shut itself off...


Hello there vincent

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

Best regards

How to perform system software update to renew encryption key on my playststion 3


You may have to renew the AACS encryption key to play content such as movies on commercially available BD video software (BD-ROM). If a message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed. There may also be other times when the key has to be renewed. in the manual

no its not recomended it can damage it, let me guess.... not playing ps3 games and bluray disc? its a fault thats happening since the latest online update. if your ps3 is less than a year old phone sony and they will send you a new one out. if warranty has finished, sony can repair it but it will cost you, for their fault! make sure you back up your data before you send it. hope this helps
