I was playing cod online and it just turned its self of now in wont turn on i cant even eject my game i has a constant red light flashing?


Hello there andrew

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

Best regards

PS3 turns on then turns its self off?


Three beeps usually indicate a hard drive failure, there is a way to fix without going to sony though, take tha hdd out but leave it in the cradle, put it in a different ps3 and format the disk as asked by the second system, once done put back in the 1st ps3 and the system will wsk to format again, allow it to do it, you will of course have lost all your data so a back up to usb hdd would be a good idea, make sure usb hdd is formatted to fat32 first though, if this fix does not work you are probably ooking at component failue, psu or mother board fry probably, in which case return to the store you bought it from if within warranty if nor call sony customer support/careline and plead your case, if they try to fob you off with an expensive repair or replace charge then ask to speak to a supervisor or manager, they will call you back, explain that the ps3 is faulty and it is NOT through your doing and keep yer didgits crossed my friend

My ps3 wont turn on it turns on and then turns it self off leving the red light flashing


Yes this is the YLOD the (Yellow light of death) it happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and you will need to fix this by stopping the heat build up, you can sned it in and they will fix it for you for $130.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good PS3 Repair guide in under an hour!

As long as you stop the heat it will work fine.
