My PS3 turns on then the TV screen flashes and my controller starts blinking 4 lights. I also notice that the hard drive doesnt sound like it is turning and the PS3 is getting hot. Any ideas what it is? Is it an easy fix?

My ps3 turned off during a game, when you try and turn it on the light on the power switch goes green for about 3 seconds then switches off again and has a red flashing light


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning.

So in order to fix the blinking red light on your PS3 you will need to repair the connection between the HDD and the motherboard.There is actually a rather simple way that you can do this yourself; while your PS3 console is switched off, locate the hard drive enclosure on the end of your console. Remove the plastic cover plate, then using a screwdriver unscrew the hard drive itself from its socket. Carefully remove it completely, then put it back in again. Tighten the holding screw, then restart your PS3

Ps3 controller is not connecting to console iv'e done tryed the reset button on the back of controller, connecting it to the USB an its still not working, im jus getting the 4 flashing lights


check your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep the vents clean and unobstructed.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.
