Dude, don't send it sony!
read the manual, it said:
- it's over heating, so give it plenty of room to breath and make sure no vents are blocked.

- don't use the system when it behaves this way.

- completely shut off the console and let it cool down, then you can use it again.

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...


the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

When i turn my playstation on, after 5-10 seconds it shuts off by itself and the red light keeps flashing, what do i do?


If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......
The PS3 red light problem occurs when your system refuses to boot up and has a small flashing red light on the power button. In most cases, the power button will turn from red to yellow and then back to a blinking red and the system will not boot up from there as it is supposed to.
There can be a variety of issues that cause the Playstation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard
and other functioning components. This can be caused simply by a flaw in the system or by obstructions to the fan vent such as a wall, floor, or excessive collection of dust...

Ps3 will not switch on. The green light turns orange than red


This is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know because it blinks red). This is caused when the unit overheats causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). 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.

Ps2 shuts and starts blinking red light


To confirm: red light blinking does mean that the console is overheating, which I know from experience.

Solution: Do not leave on carpet or any materials similar as they insulate. If possible, leave the console vertical instead of horizontal and this will help cool the system. Better yet, if you can still find one, a USB fan that plugs onto the front of your grill.

Hope this helps.

PS3 will not boot up, red light is on, will go to green for awhile then drops back to red


Excerpt from the PlayStation 3 Manual:

The power indicator on the system front is flashing red and green alternately.
*The interior of the system has become hot. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location or whether the vents are blocked. Continuing to use the system in the above condition will cause it to stop functioning. Turn the system off and leave it unused until it cools down. After the system cools down, turn it on again.

The power indicator on the system front is flashing red and the system does not operate.

*The temperature inside the system has risen too high. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location or whether the vents are blocked. Touch the power button on the system front to stop the flashing, and then leave the system unused until it cools down. After it cools down, turn on the system again.

If this does not resolve your issue, you may need to send it in for a repair.
