Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

System shuts off and turns to red light standby

I recently purchased a PS3 about 6 months ago. it worked fine until about a month ago.
while playing a game the system will make a clicking sound, shut off, turn off my controller and set the system to the red light standby mode. this happens about every 15 minuets while playing any game i put in.
Also, while playing dvd or blueray discs the picture has constant static lines going across the screen, and the audio is not very clear.
can anyone help please?

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!

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?

    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.

    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

I understand you have replaced the battery... make sure its a genuine nintendo battery and charge. Also the port could be damaged or the ac adapter... take a good look at both for damages.
The port should not wiggle on the DS and should be solid.

Tv will not turn .....replaced lamp about a month ago worked fine until yesterday, green light blinks and then shuts down


Ask for a repair man to open and check it. There might be a problem on the circuit that the system detects and automatically shuts off to avoid further damage.

My converter box, which was working fine until about two months ago, will not change channels, although the remote will turn the converter box on and off.


Is the converter on any particular channel?
Are there set top controls? Do they work?
Do you have a picture?
Has any thing been changed recently, like wiring?
Have any children been playing with the remote?
