Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi , My playstation has stopped working and the red light is flashing. It briefly tries to start when I switch it on but then dies after a second or so and I'm left with the red light flashing. I have fitted a replacement hard drive, but it makes no difference

Eeek its either the laser noise which is dying(loosing stregnth) so go easy on it , or it can be the motor being unbalanced and slamming into the sides of the ps2. You can buy the laser on ebay with the laser number being on the underside of it

This is probably like the "Ring Of Death" that is included also with the Xbox 360. You might need to replace it. Have you been using it over a long period of time?

hello is perhaps an internal problem that has your playstation with the reader, if you still check the warranty with sony, contact them and explain what happens to you, ahh and if you have something put on the power button remove it

do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..
1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.
If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony
