Ps3 will not turn on,green light comes on for a sec,then red and then shuts off

hi there Janet

This is Yellow light of death and in the gaming world its known as the YLOD.

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at the moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards

My psp turns on for about 30 sec. but the screen dose not come on the battery is charged it was doing a update with the avatar game when it stopped working it`s Model psp-2001and the charge light comes on...

The system software has become corrupted... if a system update freezes, the PSP will have an incomplete operating system software on it and will not boot up. When you turn it on, it looks for system software, can't find it, and it will shut itself back off. This is what we call a "BRICKED" PSP.

The following website can fix it for you by rebuilding the system software for $29. It's the next to last option down -- "UNBRICK PSP"

No video input, all black screen.

Yes , it's not your cables , It's 1 of about 9 solder ball contacts that are
right under a hot spot on the G.P.U. , and believe me it gets hot just under
this specific area of the chip set . so the connections expand and contract
till you get freezing ,white and green vertical lines ,no video, every error light
except 4 reds which is unplugged A/V cable. the cure 99.9% is a Proper
X clamp Mod . It works , and when done right it stays fixed .

Green pwr light comes on screen will not initiate, then goes off.

It looks like you hav a "brick". Something is wrong with your systemfiles that don't let your psp start up properly. You can either use " Pandoras Battery" (search on google), or send it back to sony to be repaired, if you have warranty (or not). :)

My psp is broke

if when you try to turn it on it shows the green light for about 10-30 sec. then shuts off by itself it means you have a bricked PSP which you can fix by using a Pandora battery which you can make by reading some tutorials or you can buy them off ebay.
