Re: wont stay turned on

I had the exact same prob, if the light goes green for a very short period before going red again it means theres a short on the circuit board. u can try and find the problem but because the circuitry is very small, it wont be easy to find. only other solution is to buy a new circuit board :(

Hello, i started up my 60gb playstation last night and it ran fora few minutes then turned itself off. Turned it back on and it would stay on for a few seconds and turn off,repeatedly. Did it this morning...

If its an unwanted christmas present, I'm guessing its still under warranty, so call sony. They'll fix it for free. Your problem sounds a bit...irregular.

My playstation 3 turned off, wont turn back on and a flashing red light appears, and it wont eject the game i had in, Solution?

This is known as the yellow light of death(ironic i know). This is caused when the solder on the board melts and bridges(connects). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Ps3 shuts down

It's a over heating issue. Make sure it isn't on carpet, in a closed cabinet, or any other enclosed area, also make sure it isn't next to a heating vent. Let it cool down for a few hours, and it should be ok.

Wont stay on

got this same problem before,dropped a psp and after that it only powers on for a while and turns off.soon i found out that the main board is twisted.when i bend the psp a little bit it turns on normally,but when i release the prissure from the grip it shuts down.the best solutiion for that is to dismantle the psp and reheat the main board using a hot air machine for about 3 min.for the mother board to return to its original position.

It wont turn on at all

The same problem occured to my slimline ps2. I opened it to find that the power switch inside had broken of. The only option is to get the switch soldiered back on or replace the tiny circuit board that has the switch.
