Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 3 console won't operate!

The infamous green then yellow then bck to flashing red light of death on my launch day 60gb pal playstation 3. Component failure apparently and as a safety precaution it won't power on. I prefer not to send it to sony and pay $315 au. i've noticed a so called ps3 repair handbook from american site for $30 au which ensures it can fix the flashing light problem. Any advice?

My advise is that don't fall for mimics
you cant fix it yourself unless you know the ins and outs of the motherboard

basicly the only advise i can give you is if you do pay to get it fixed make sure u get extra warranty
