Question about Sony Playstation 3 - System - 500gb - Cech-4001c
It turns on and shuts down.. I tried pushing power button to reset but won't no flashing red lights. I turn it on and it won't even bring up a picture on HDMI or AV cables..
Does it blink red or yellow lights? That's a sign of hardware failure and the system needs to be serviced.

plug both cables into tv select the input on tv that has the three different color cable plugged into it use this connection to navigate the menu on ps3 go into display settings and choose the option for 1080 p or 1080 i and then choose the input method of hdmi after doing so your picture will go blank you must then select the input on the tv that has the hdmi plugged into it your screen should then show the picture you must do this quickly because you only have 30 seconds or so to save the new settings before it resets back to the old output settings. click your x button to save and you should be well on your way to better graphics using the hdmi on your ps3!!

This is known as the "Yellow Light of Death" for the PlayStation 3 (ironic, I know, because it blinks the red light). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to actually melt and bridge or connect. Once this happens it causes a short in the board giving you the error you have now. Contact Sony to see if your unit is still under warranty.
If your unit is not under warranty, then go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a video game console repair company and we can get you back up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email us at email@example.com or call toll free at 888-389-3038.
