Game stopped playing and red light flashed without me making it.


Hello.

This flashing red light is due to your PS3 overheating. Let it cool for approximately 6 hours before turning it on.

If this happens constantly, then you need to make sure that the PS3 is not in an enclosed space (e.g. cupboards). The vents at the back and right sides of the PS3 must be 6 inches away from walls.

Hope this helps. If it doesn't work, let us know.

Playing any PS3 game and screen goes blank. red light on console blinks.


Common reason is your PS3 has overheated. Turn off system after removing game disc and let system cool. Clear any dust or debris from the vents and if possible, relocate PS3 to more open area.

The red light keeps blinking and won't eject disc


You have the dreadful blinking red light of death. Long story short the system is broken and you have a few options:
  1. send the system to sony and receive a refurbished system for $150.
  2. find a local to do it for much cheaper
  3. watch vids on the web (youtube.com) and fix it yourself but it is fairly difficult.
  4. buy a new ps3.
I hope I have helped and feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it goes.

From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.
