Sounds like a classic internal Power Supply fault. You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done

My ps3 turned off during a game, when you try and turn it on the light on the power switch goes green for about 3 seconds then switches off again and has a red flashing light


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning.

So in order to fix the blinking red light on your PS3 you will need to repair the connection between the HDD and the motherboard.There is actually a rather simple way that you can do this yourself; while your PS3 console is switched off, locate the hard drive enclosure on the end of your console. Remove the plastic cover plate, then using a screwdriver unscrew the hard drive itself from its socket. Carefully remove it completely, then put it back in again. Tighten the holding screw, then restart your PS3

Ok I have had this happen a few times before. What I do to fix it is disconnect the HDMI cable while everything is still on and playing and then re-insert the cable back into the TV. This re-configures the HDMI signal and should hopefully stop this problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I fixed my ps3!! All you need is a friend with a ps3!! Swap the hdd's and boot up your friends ps3, format the hdd, put it back in your ps3 and you may need to format it again.

I tried to fix my friend's PS3 HDD that way in mine...it still gave an error every time he booted up his PS3. At that point I stuck the PS3 HDD in my laptop, booted from a Windows CD and fully formatted it that way...stuck it back in his machine...used it to format....finally got his stuff going. Took a little extra time but no problems since.

When i turn on my ps3, the background pops up but the menu doesnt appear, i tried to connect the controller with the usb port but nothing works. it doesnt do any thing, HELP!!!!!


Turn your PS3 completely off by pressing the power button and then turning off the power switch in the back. Your PS3 should show no lights. Wait about an hour to let the system completely cool down, then turn the power switch on the back on again. Now press the power button and hold it until the system beeps. This will reset a few settings and make sure the system is OK. Hook your PS3 up using the RCA Red White and Yellow cable and turn it on again, and you should be able to be back up and running.

The Hard Disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored


apart from physically reformating the hard drive yourself (taking it out and loading it on laptop or desktop and format, at your own risk), there isn't much else you can do. If the console is still guaranteed then contact sony and they will send you a new one.
If you do format it your self when you replace it in your ps3 you will need to format it again using thier options.
