    99.9% of the time this is a heat sync problem and your CPU and GPU need to be re-seated. I had the same problem and fixed it. email dwdpcrepair@gmail.com

It's a hard ware problem: either the power supply, hard drive, or likely the motherboard.

You'll have to contact Sony for repair @

1-800-345-SONY

You can try a few of tips here:

Most of them apply to the YLOD problem but they're essentially the same.

Uncharted 2 only game that shuts down my 60 GB PS3


It seemed as if you were getting the symptoms of the "blinking red light of doom" but luckily you didn't.And VERY VERY good thinking on the back up (i never thought of it and i almost lost all my data).
I hope your new hdd runs a 5400rpm and NOT 7200rpm.
Facts:
1. A 7200rpm hdd will make system over-heat.

2. System run hotter (and in most cases of red light of doom) are HIGH graphics games such as MW2 & UNCHARTED 2.

3. Systems will last longer and cooler with an external fan that runs off its on power from a power outlet(not run off the power of the ps3!!!!)

I hope I have helped and please feel free to ask any questions GOOO UNCHARTED 2!!

3red lights how do i find the code


Press and hold the sink button then press the eject button 4 time
and note the 4 digit code .
4 blinking reds = 0 3 blinking Reds = 3 2 blinking reds= 2 1 blinking red=1

The code doesn't relay matter ,the problem is broken solder connections.
under the G.P.U 90% of the time , and that chip need to be re-flowed.

if you have any questions just comment and ill respond.

I need help xbox 360 black screen


OK, I think I can slove your problem.

There is a slide setting thing on your av cord that gives you the option of using TV or HDTV (look near the end of the cord that slides into the XBOX 360), You will see two choices for settings on the cord "TV" or "HDTV".
Just make sure that you have it on the correct setting. I had the smae problem. My XBOX 360 is not hooked up to HDTV, so for me it should stay on TV. But somehow when I took out the cord I accidently slide it to HDTV.

I simply slide it back to the "TV" Setting and in about 30 seconds it worked perfectly.

I hope this helps you.

SAVED GAME FOR GTA IV


sorry to hear your game save is corrupt.

while i haven't heart of any save problems with gta 4.... no game is perfect.

If it continually happens with gta 4 and possibly with other games, it could be a sign of hard drive failure.

Hd failure is a common problem with other models.

Just a heads up.

Game stuck in my PS3


Well my system just recently died while I was playing GTA and yeah now my game is stuck as well cause when I turn the system on it stays on for like 3 seconds before turning off and blinks the red light at me, I am not sure if there is a way to get the game out maybe if you open up the PS3 but make sure you don't do that if you still have warranty on the system or it will be void. I am sending my PS3 into Sony and the guy said just make a note that the game is stuck in the system and they will take care of it and fix my system.
