System turns to red light standby in the middle of playing

I recently bought my ps3 60g about 6 months ago. it worked fine for the longest time. since a month ago, while playing a game, the system will shut off and turn on standby and turn off my controller in the middle of playing a game. this happens with any game i play. It happens about every 15 minuets.
also while playing dvd's the picture has static lines constantly going across the screen, and the audio is not very clear

You need to go to your setting and change your automatic shutoff timer. this will cause your system to turn off every 15 minutes no matter what you are doing...

Hope this helps... please rate...thanks

My infinity ps210 stops putting out any bass. It was working fine a few days ago but it just stops working without any obvious reason. I bought it fourteen months ago from amazon and I've hardly used it....


Hey. I have two PS210's One popped and stopped working 9 months in to it. Under warranty the technician said that Infinity produced these speakers wit ha known heat related problem. Some part burns up. He replaces them all the time. You can expect about a year's service as my seconf one just popped and died. It costs about $153 to fix it here in phoenix. Will never buy Infinity again from what I know

When I turn my ps3 on, there is no audio/video. I don't think it's a software update problem, as I was playing my ps3 about two/three hours ago. I turn it off at the back, chill for a couple seconds, then...


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

Flashing Standby Light (6 times every 2 second interval)


A 6 flash error indicates a problem with the backlight. Your set is less than a year old and still in warranty, so you should contact Sony and arrange for a service call to get it repaired.

Sound no video


Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list a couple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.

2. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
