Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The front light keeps blinking when i turn it on , and now it wont get out of stand by mode. THe Ps3 keeps waiting for the fan to start so it can turn on but all the fans are broken.
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.
