Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
When I turn the console on the fan starts for a couple seconds then stops. The light flashess yellow then blinks red 3 times. Not sure if its a loose fan connection or a bad power supply
Bad power supply unit IF you can hear it clicking. You should be able to hear clicking coming from the LEFT side of the PS3.
here's a link to fix it yourself, disassembly required.
Mine just broke today as well, confirmed what it was with the above links.
