My ps 3 was working fine and all of a sudden it went off. I tried to turn it back on and can on for a sec and then went off again. The light started flashing red.


Dear Friend,

The red flashing light might indicate and error with your PS3 console just follow this step to reset your console. This might help,

Press down the power button, you will hear one beep, keep pressing then, the second beep will sound twice. From there it will prompt you to the reset screen.

Good Luck!!

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.

My ps3 wont power up


try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .

When turning on the console the power light will blink red and beep and no on-screen video shows


This is a system failure. Your systems are "Dead" and need to be repaird by Sony. Other options include selling it on eBay or similar site (techs will buy them for the parts) and use the money to buy a new or refurbished one, call Sony and pay the $175 (US funds) to have them fix it, or take it to your local recycling center.
This problem is caused by a faulty bridge, connection or chip on the motherboard. I hope this helps. Thank you.

It does the same thing over again


Ok, for the PS3...it is dead. There is no known fix for this problem yet and is considered a system failure.
As for your COD4 info..... it will be there as long as you use the same PSN account. The story mode will be reset though unless you can extract the game save file from your hard drive.
