    i have the same problem which happened after a downloaded a pro evo 2009 update , , the download worked , i played the game then once finished i put the ps3 in standby and once i put iot back on , i put a dvd in and it went off immediately and went into red then went yello fora few seconds and then flashed red. To me it seems that something has happened with the download an it has corrupted my ps3 and this happened yesterday 17th Fen and since the other two people have wrote on here today then obviously this is sony's fauly . i rang the helpline and they said they wud replace my ps3 for 150 pound which is a disagrace , i am going to ring them back

There's nothing you can do unless you have electronics experience. Save yourself the grief and call Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

It could be: the power supply, hard drive.

It's probably: the motherboard.

Ps3 problem : wont turn on


First Try these steps for basic troubleshooting, your PS3 has got "Yellow Light of Death" hardware fault

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.


The problem you have encountered needs professional service and repair, so do not try fiddling much with your PS3 at home, if the above steps do not work please send your playstation 3 for repairs to Sony.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

Flashing red light


Go to you www.youtube.com and you may be able to find helpful videos on this. But if you bought it new it is under warranty and they will fix it. You just pay for shipping.
