Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I turn my ps3 on and it turns off right away.. its ridiculus..
If it turns off right away flashes a quick yellow then blinks red 99% of the time this is a heat sync issue. your CPU and GPU will more than likely need to be re-seated as well. I run a home based pc repair business in southern california and have fixed this on a number of systems. You can e-mail me at email@example.com for more information

system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights
at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled
itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...
