Well Sony probably won't fix it anymore since the seal has been broken. That's there generally policy but I've heard that occasionally they'll go ahead and do a repair even if it's been opened. They charge a flat rate of $150. You can start the process by calling 1-800-345-SONY

My ps3 shut off on me in mid play. it will not eject my disc or turn on at all. the light blinks red , i hit the power button ,it turns green ,then yellow and off to blinking red again. somebody please...

Sounds as if it might have overheated and is giving a hardware failure...

if under warranty, call sony - 800-345-SONY begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 800-345-SONY end_of_the_skype_highlighting

or if you are outside of warranty, call sony - 800-345-SONY begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 800-345-SONY end_of_the_skype_highlighting, and be prepared to spend anywhere from $150 to $180 + tax. you will get a refurb in return and a 90-day warranty. all shipping and materials are included in the cost.

or you can use a third-party repair service, Gophermods seems to have a really good reputation. this will cost anywhere from $70 to about $135 (standard 60-day warranty on repair only, or $30 for 180-day warranty). you provide shipping (for the standard $70 repair) and box/shipping materials.

Red/green light keeps blinking.

This issue is related to a bad/failed power supply inside your TV.

Call LG to see if your TV is still in warranty. 800-243-0000

If not in warranty, the power supply is about $225.

Good luck. I do hope that I have helped you.

PS3 shut off with blinking red light, there is power, ejected cd.

The blinking red light means the system has over heated and normally the system will shut off by itself and will not come back untill cool.(but not in all cases does the system work completely correct in that situation).
The hard disk may possibly have something to do with this occurance, but I honestly doubt it.
It may be the system final moments until it dies but it may be fine.(the normal life span of a ps3 is about 2 yrs.)
If it's not just the system crapping out it may juss be the power supply and I would do some trouble shooting in that area but again,I am doubtful.
Smart thinking about taking the game out and I would advise don't put it back in until you know for sure that the system is good (because honestly MW2 is TOO awesome to risk it!!)
If all else fails, you could call SONY but if they can't fix it over the phone then they will want you to trade for a refurbished system for $150 or if its under warranty it's free.
I hope I have helped and I hope it all works out!!!!

HLS5087 DLP - Samsung Hi - on my DLP 1/3 of the screen is very dim - almost black - it's about 2 yrs old and of course out of warranty -

You probably have a bad Light Tunnel. Samsung has a Tech bulliten and recall for this defect and might pay for the repair. Call 1-800-SAMSUNG and ask for the ECR Group and explain the symptom. If they resists to pay for repair mention the recall.

Screw a test gage in the engine where the electric sending unit is. Check to see what the pressure is cold and after it is warmed up. It may be a bad sender.

Blinking red lights

The failure of a blinking light is from a defective power supply. It could be a zener diode that is faulty, rectifier and a few capacitors as well.
I repair these power supplies. If you need more info send me an email to
