If i was you i would take it back to where you got it from and demand they swap it. I've read that alot of people have had this problem. But its always when they first buy them. So i say its sony quality control, and there not checking the ps3's before there going out. Take it back to shop with receipt and ask them to swap it. You shouldn't have any problems.

Ok so i plugged the ps3 up and usual the red light comes on put not anymore once i push the power booton the red light come on then ill push it again the green light will appear for about 10 seconds t


Ouch, my first thought is, maybe it jolted the HDD (hard drive) Go through the steps to remove it, then reinstall it. After the removal an re-installation, try turning it on in safe mode for a system check or restore.

you need to change your power box there is a bad connection with the wires. its over heating you might whant to buy another at game stop or take it in to get fixed. the more you messed with it it might mess up your whole system.

Its just red on the tv


you have what is known as the red screen of death. you may be able to easily fix this by turning off the system from the switch in the back then turn it on from the back you will then see the light in the front is red. push and HOLD the power button until you hear three beeps in a row then a menu with 6 options should come up choose the third one. you will then need to hook up a controller with the usb cable and press x. you may have to repeat this several times but it has worked for people Good luck

Playstation 3 power issue


Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.

Red light comes on but the shuts off?


Mine did that and it really pised me of, sony told me to turn the power switch onthe back of the console on, when the stand by light comes on to push and hold the on button for at least 3 seconds until you hear a second set of beeps. This however didn`t work so I sent it back to Sony Australia and got it fixed up no worries.
