Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When i try to turn on my ps3 it begins to launch, then the light turns orange and then makes 3 beeps an the red light start blinking. What should i do?
You and most all PS3 owners have or will experience this problem. Your Heat Transfer compound is dried up. This to me is a definite Manufacturer Defect. Contact Sony at 1800 345-7669 unless your outside North America. If you know how to get to the heat sinks, I suggest you go there and put some new high quality Heat Transfer compound between your processors and the heat sinks.
Also check your Ribbon cable connections, as I did se where one PS3 owner found his Ribbon cable fromt he Card readers miss inserted. He orrectly inserted it and he was up and running. Now you do need to contact and Get Sony to fix this if you have the required credentials. Do not waste your warranty.
