Vxl 3s turns on when i plug in battery, green light comes on, than red, than blinks through the racing and training modes, wont respond with button push

It sounds like it might just be a case of the button being stuck. The ESC shouldn't turn on just from you plugging in the battery, you're supposed to have to press the button once the battery's connected to power up the ESC.

When I push the on button the green light comes on for second or two then goes out.(will not stay turned on long enough to even get a picture on the screen.Mitsibishi Model # WS-55315

This set has a self check feature--if set has been unplugged it clears the error buffer--plug in and try to turn on set.

When green light comes on and then goes off ON THE FRONT OF THE SET press and hold BOTH the menu and input(device) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat the code for a total of five times.

Let me know what error code you find and I will explain it.

Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...

Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button

You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

Power button is green - no blinks / no picture / no sound

Unplug it from the wall, wait 2 minutes and plug it back in. if problem still exists, its probably the main pcb.
