Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

High pitched ring

Hello, I've had my ps3 for about 2 years and after it warms up for about 4 or 5 minutes it emits a high pitched ring. I'd heard that they do this for a short while, but mine continues to produce this high pitched ring.The performance of the console remains spectacular but it's getting annoying and any suggestions would be great.

Dear support I have 4 red flashing lights on the system and cant do anything. I cant even get to the main screen. Someone told me it was called the ring of death. Please help me. ...

If you have 4 flashing red lights that means that the AV cable is not connected correctly. The ring of death is only 3 red lights. If you do indeed have 3 lights than i suggest trying this video clip. i have heard that this does work.

Problems turning it on

i've heard about the Red Ring of Death, in which the ring glows red. This is an unfixable problem with the hardrive and you have to get a new one. But since yours turns on sometimes, it might not be it. If i were you I'd think about taking it back.
