Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My PS3 has just died..... rip...
When I start the thing up the green light comes on, the fan starts then stops straight away. There is no picture (its an anolouge tv not HD) and the control wont identify with the machine. Looks like the Operation system is not loading. Have tried pressing the power button for 5 seconds and resetting the display, removing the cable, replacing and restarting to do a hard restart .... nothing works. Ive seen this on a few blogs but no real resolution. Any idea whats wrong?
if the hard drives are interchangable or replaceable, i,d give that a try. Other than that it seems as if the bios-eeprom or memory chips are acting up.
I remember MS having the same problems with the 360. Overheating issues. if your consoles are warranted, get them replaced. If theres any sort of setup disk with these consoles ( as bought-demo et,c ) try starting up with that In.
