My ps3 will not stay on it goes on for a few seconds then goes to blinking red light.


It sounds like you have a ps3 failure. In some consoles there have been reports of flashing red lights or red screens of death (a bit like the red ring of death on the xbox360 a few years ago)
Call sony and request a repair or if you don't have $200 to blow try repairing it yourself using a how to guide...
It's way too complicated to stick in an answer like this but theyre usually only around $20 and if it doesnt work it doesnt work - at least you tried.
You will void any warranty if you open the PS3 up yourself though so if there is a warranty call Sony and ask them for assistance first.
Googled and found this for a PS3 fixing guide :)

When I go to turn the PS3 on, the light goes on but then it goes back to a blinking red light and beeps and just repeats this process.


The blinking red light on PS3 is known to occur when something as simple as a misplaced connection occurs. It could also mean that the PS3's hard drive is malfunctioning or not functioning at all. You can take the following steps to identify and perhaps correct the problem. Check to ensure that all cables are properly and securely connected. If this doesn't solve the problem, try reinstalling the hard drive as indicated below.

Physically remove the hard drive from the PS3 console. Dust off the connectors, and gently and carefully replace it into the PS3. Very often this simple removal and replacement will fix the blinking red light problem. It may be necessary to remove and replace the hard drive several times.

If this does not work the blinking red light can only be inicative of a chronic overheating problem and will nead to be sent to sony for repairs.

Hope this helps

When i turn on my ps3 the light on the front goes green white red


Send it in for service at a Sony playstation service center.
It is possible you have a hard drive problem, but you will basically need to buy a hard drive and install it to find out.

Cant reboot after red blinking light


There isn't much you can do to easily fix this problem.

Try booting the PS3 with hard drive removed.

For more tips, suggestions, etc.

Playstation 3 at power on, light becomes white then blinks red


Probably and overheating problem. Here's what I suggest:

Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.

You might also consider a System Restore if you can do it before it shuts off.
