Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
While playing my PS3 switched itself off. I can't turn it back on as it shuts down on startup. I have power lights so not an input problem i think. PS3 has not been bumped in any way. Any help would be appreciated, cheers
Let me guess...
You get a blinking red light then it shuts off.
Your system probably overheated and unfortunately Sony has it setup so that when it happens you have to send it in for service.
Are you still under warranty?

Power off the unit using the toggle
switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle
switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject
your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not
the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the
memory card slots.

system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's
at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly
itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the
PS3... this kind of problem u can fix by using repair guide
