Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When we press the start button it turns green for on for 1 sec. only and than it blinks red and does not eject the game. It started when my son was playing the game when all of a sudden it turned itself off and never started again. We tried to shut off the button in the back and turning back on but still did not help.
HI, this is a power unit issue. you will need to replace the power unit block asap if possible. these can be purchase on line or, you can contact sony for this repair as well.
we recommend contacting Sony for the correct power unit for your system.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
