Does the light flash red, or does it turn off completely?
If it flashes red, you've got an overheating problem. You either need to send it in to Sony, or a third party repair place.

If it turns off completely, you need a new power supply which you can attempt to repair yourself (they cost $30-$40 online) or again, send it in.

Sony charges about $150 USD plus shipping, third party repair places would most like charge $80-$100

With Sony though you usually don't get your system back, they send you a refurbished one (so all your data will be gone).

Usually these fixes don't last (from Sony either). Best bet is to just get someone backup the hard drive data and get your disc out, then buy a new system.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

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.

Tv wont turn on -- stand by light just keeps blinking


This is very common problem for sony. Blinking light is power supply problem need to replace two voltage reulators in supply and caps and sometime horz output.


Sometimes if you adjust screen voltage adustment on flyback just slightly it will fix it.

cost if ps is 225.00
screen is 95.00
