Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System

1 Answer

My ps3 wont turn on. I went to put in a movie to watch and the ps3 turned on for half a second turned a yellow color and then turned off. The forums I read online say that means its dead? How much would it cost to have it fixed or is there a cheaper way?

As far as what it would cost versus actually purchasing a new console, I have no idea. Having said that a PS3 is essentially just a computer. It has all the basic components as a computer including a hardrive. If the warraqnty is up you might try calling a local pc repair shop and see if someone there woould be willing to look at it for you. If you still have a warranty i would send it back to Sony and tell them to either refurb it or replace it completley. Good Luck

I am hooked up wireless to my ps3 but when i try to watch a movie on Netflix it only plays for 30 seconds and buffers, then plays for 30 seconds and buffers. I can put my laptop next to the ps3 and...


First restart the ps3 and try to load the movie again see if that helps or not.
If the Netflix still only loads on your ps3 but keeps on buffering this might be cause by not enough bandwidth allocated for your ps3. Try turning off your computer and all the devices that are connected the internet. Then try again.

It wont turn on just flashed red light and wont give the disk back


watch the lights on the front when you try to turn it on. If the blue light flashes yellow for a second, you have ahardware failure, so-called Yellow Light of Death. You can get the disc out by turning off the switch at the back, then hold down the eject button and turn the back button on again.

You have major problems I'm afraid. You need to contact Sony about fixing it/replacing it. Just pray it's under warranty. You could equate this problem with the 360's Red Ring of Death.
