Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My almost new ps3 will play any blueray video but since yesterday I haven't been able to play any games. Soon after I load any game as soon as its in intro video plays, if there is any, as the game itself begins to load, the console will beep thrice and the screen will go blank while the light begins to flash red.
The console is in a well ventilated area and the symptom will manifest itself even if the machine has just been turned on in the morning.
After the console shuts down, you will be able to turn it on again quickly and play any blueray video without any issues but as soon as you load any game the console beep thrice and shut down to the flashing red lights again.
Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)
There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.
