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.
