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

Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...


Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

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.

My xbox 360 is giving me three red lights it turns on but after a few minutes it turns off n shows three red lights


Okay, 3 blinking red lights can have 2 problems.

1: There's a problem with the power supply. Try unplugging the power supply from the wall and the system for 10 seconds, then connect it once more. There should be a little light on one end of the big box thing between the cord to the wall and to the system. Turn your system on and watch the light, if it is green, then that part is okay. Try replacing the wires on either end of the box (or use a friend's which is cheaper ;P). If this doesn't fix it then you have a problem, see 2.

2: You have a hardware issue somewhere inside the console. There's nothing you can really do about this without voiding your warranty. Call Microsoft and get a repair order for it. You'll have to send it off to the them, but if your Warranty is still good, they'll fix it free. If not they will charge you the repair costs. You are of course free to cry softly over the problem, as i did when faced with the red ring of death.

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!!!!

Will not power up, red light goes green flashes yellow then stays flashing red


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to Sony). North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

When I turn on my PS3 the light flashes green 3 times then yellow twice then red. It won't eject the game disk. I've tried holding the eject button for up to 30 seconds without success.
