My playstation 3 wont come on. The red light keeps blinking. It was working fine the I turned it off for awhile, when I came back it wont come on.


1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.


If this did not work

Send your playstation 3 back to Sony

Upgrade to ps3 firmware 3.01 and now it won't play games.


The error code is actually one of two things, a) a faulty sector on the internal hard drive, or b) a faulty installation of software/firmware, both iterations actually coincide with eachother. If the hard drive suffers a faulty sector ( a section of damaged space on the drive that data may have been written to that no longer is readable), an installation may still be processed, and even work, but the error can cause some serious side effects, such as option b. If your PS3 has installed an item incorrectly, including firmware, it is in high risk of receiving this error.
Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game disc recognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, the drive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems. When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, will receive the error.
1) Ensure that your internet connection is stable. If you are using a wireless connection, make sure your signal is at least a solid 80%. If not, make the proper adjustments until it is.
2) Dust your machine regularly. Any PS3 owner will tell you that the Playstation 3 is a dust magnet. Just run a dry cloth over it every couple days, and you should be fine. This will help prevent heat issues and shorts that may occur.
3) When installing firmware and/or software, make sure you follow the instructions. Even if you have installed 6 versions prior, each one is different, and may require additional steps. Save yourself the headache and just follow them, it only takes a minute or so longer to do it right.
Lets sum it all up, the error is not hardware related and is caused due to corruption of firmware. Restoring you PS3 will not roll back the firmware, and unfortunately will not fix the issue 9 times out of 10. If you are receiving this error, contact Sony for a replacement unit.

Upgrading PS3 HDD


You can upgrade the hard drive to a bigger one just as long as it's the same physical size as the original one. The 40GB PS3 is technically capable of backwards compatibility. It's just that Sony's OS doesn't support it on that model (maybe, there will be a firmware update that will allow it in the future). If you install Linux on the PS3 (which Sony officially allows you to do), then you can install the PS1 emulator (it's called ePSXe) and the PS2 emulator (it's called PCSX2). Both of them are free to download for Linux. The only thing that won't make the 40GB model the same as the 80GB is the finish of the console, lack of built-in memory card reader, lack of built-in WiFi, and only 2 USB ports. But those aren't neccesary.
