We just had the same problem yesterday. According to Sony it's not fixable. We're out of warranty so it's $149 plus tax and 3 weeks to get a new one. Plus they'll get the game out and send it back o us. It sucks that we have to pay that much for a typical problem that's unfixable!

How can I fix the flashing red light on my PS3


The flashing red light indicates the PS3 is overheating. This could be caused by: 1. a short circuit in the Power Supply 2. You may need a new fan or 3. the heatsinks may not be making proper contact with the motherboard chips.

6 month old PS3 failed to re-power. Worked perfectly until then. The power on light goes to green for approx 2 seconds then to flashing red. Pressing the flashing red light will make it a steady red....


Hello,

This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:





· Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.



· If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.



· Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.



· If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service." Hope this will help...

System comes on and immediately red light flashes


PS3 flashing is not hard to fix. Do you want to fix it by yourself instead of pay $150 checking to Sony? Here's the solution :

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

you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.
