    I just started playing a game then all of a sudden the console shuts off started beeping followed by a yellow light and then finally a flashing red light. the console will not eject game, the console will start up with the fan going and then shut off again followed by a flashing red light. if you hold the power button on it will turn a solid red but nothing happens.

There was a power outage, and the red light on the printer keeps flashing but it won't print

Click on start and type services.msc and hit enter. Then scroll down till you see print spooler, right click it and say stop, count to 5 and right click it again and say run.
If this doesn't fix it try turning the power off on the printer and unplugging it and waiting 30 seconds then reverse the steps, plug back in and turn it back on.

When turning on tv. screen will display Bravia image & then go blank. red light flashes SIX times

Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TVicon1.png will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone.

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes

do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

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 back to Sony

Will not power up, red light goes green flashes yellow then stays flashing red

Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to Sony). North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case.

Playstation3 wont turn on red flashing light then a double beep then turn off

Unplug the power cable from the back of the PS3, wait around 30 minutes...this will allow the unit to cool down. Plug the cable back in and try to boot the unit again. If you still have a red light, call PlayStation. If you're still under warranty, they'll send you a new unit at no cost to you. The problem may be the Hard Disk. This happened to me and PlayStation was very easy to deal with.
