When i turn on the ps3 the main light turns green, yellow then red again

My friend had this problem and fixed it by taking the console apart, removing the motherboard and heating it up, presumably to let any dry joints re-solder. He actually had a friend do it by putting it in an oven but this melted a component which had to be replaced, so I would recommend using a heat gun or alternative if possible.

The same fault has occured on my brothers PS3 and since I have a heat-gun and soldering irons at work, I'm going to have a go at fixing it myself and shall report back when I've attempted it.

What a fantastic peice of machinery, eh?

Console turned off during game, now it won't turn back on & I can't eject the game disk

Your going to have to probably take your PS3 apart and take the game out. DO NOT EXPOSE THE LASER TO LIGHT!!!!!! BIG NO NO! Know you might have to go down to your local tech store and ask why it wont turn on. Possibly your PS3 has blown up from a power surge or something stupid.

Surge protector shuts off while playing PS3

swap to another surge protector. if it still does it, it is a power surge at the outlet, if it does not, the Surge Proctector has worn out. have someone with the appropriate knowlege have a look at the outlet as well. older outlets especially tend to wear to the point where the plug literally falls out of the wall.
