Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Lets try a few things bronx,
lets start by going over the beeps and lights. when you power the unit on. it should go Blue and stay blue. this means the unit is so far functioning correctly.
if your unit turns on lights up blue, then yellow , then red and stays red you have an issue
if you are experiencing the first scenario, press the power button till it goes red. which is standby mode.
then press button again till you hear two beeps, let go. make sure you have all your cables plugged in. this will send you to the diagnostic screen on the ps3 to select anyone of your options. since you are not getting a video display select the display settings and reset yours according to your type tv. if you are using a standard old school tellie, then its 480i, if you are on a plasma or lcd it would be 720p,1080i or 1080p. then you should be good from there
okay, if you are experiencing the second scenario its a much more severe issue. the GPU on the motherboard has gone bad, which is common on ps3s. if it is under warranty contact sony and they will send you out a refurb'd unit. if it is not under warranty there are a few good companies out on ebay that reflow or reball gpu chips on ps3s to repair this known issue.
since you are getting beeps and lights this is one of your scenarios. if you get no lights,no beeps then you got a bad Power Supply.
