Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...


Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

My fat 60 GB PS3 just stopped working. Blinking red light persists despite multiple resets. Please advise


The manual clearly states a blinking red light is an "over heat condition" and your system has shut down to prevent a failure. You need to find more airflow for your PS3. If your system is cooled down and you are still getting a blinking red light then you will need to replace the CPU board because it has melted from excess heat.

PS3 won't power up.


Hi,
THis issue is a motherboard issue, sort of like the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.  It will need to be repaired.  If it is under warranty then send it to Sony, otherwise we fix this issue in my repair shop, just go to joegoods.com
