Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 wont play the majority of my games. for all except one it will completely turn off and flash a blinking red light. wat the hell?
Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. i'm getting my new one tomorrow. upset it broke but sony's replacement service is very good.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello there andrew
If you have the red
blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.
The light is a warning
sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick
explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the
GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder
heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this
will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection
with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.
WHERE TO GO FROM
1 - Call Sony
In warranty the Price
is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150,
the whole process is 4-6 weeks
You can call Sony and
they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back
2 - Fix it your Self
You can use a PS3 fix
manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you
probably already own.
