  • fqh0014 Jun 20, 2008

    i was playing a game when there was a flactuation in the electrical current. My PS3 went off and returnted to standby mode. i tried to switch it on and experienced the blinking red light problem. I thought it might be out of overheating so i turned it off and tried switching it on the next morning and still had the same problem.
    i have tried taken the HD out and booting it on and it still gives me the blinking red light problem.

    I was playing my ps3 one day and I just turned it on for ten minutes when it suddenly froze and turned off. Then when i tried to turn it back on it turned green to show that it was turning on and then it turned orange after a couple seconds. Then it turned off and started blinking red. then it kept doing the same thing over and over. how can i fix this?

    I experienced the same problem last night. I was playing Warhawk and all of the sudden the system shut off and the red stanby light was flashing. When I tried to turn the system back on, the green light lit up for about 1 second, turned yellow for about a half second and then turned red and beeped 3 times. I tried doing the blower test to get the dust out and not even that will work.

    I hear that replacing the hard drive has resolves some peoples problems, but not all. Need solution!

Try resetting it. when you turn on the unit hold the power button until you hear three beeps and release.

if that doesnt work, sounds like you have the YLOD. might mean a bad power supply

LG 399d - new - trying to play Avatar movie via the USB port - will not recognise this movie format. In DVDSCR AC3 XVID. AVI. Other movies same format play well not this one. Why? What to fix it? Dave

It is probably a corrupted copy,or perhaps the codec is slightly different from the one, used by player, there could be many reasons indeed. It could be a bad "Header" file. Try re doing the copy again, and see.

Dvd burner problems

I dont understand your question. If you mean burnt dvd's dont play on your dvd player, Check your region code and ensure your burn was region free or region specific to your region.
ensure you used the proper format, PAL or NTSC
and enusre you copied the DVD and didnt drag and drop the files as a data disc.

if you are burning a movie from a avi or mpg file you might need to encode it to dvd format..

i didnt understand your question so if i didnt assume correct please repost it thanks :)
