Try opening it and cleaning it out. If you mess with GPU, and CPU make sure to put new thermal compound on it. My friends did the same thing. We cleaned it and it works great now. No problems at all. Do this maybe once a month depending on how much you play. Hope this helps.

Yes this is the red light problem you need to use a good guide to fix it or send it in for repair.

It is caused by overheating internally.

PS3 keep turning off it self


It sounds as though the console is overheating.. Which would mean that it needs to go in for repair.
One thing to try before doing this would be to first backup all your information have u have stored on the console.
Then in the options menu, select the option to restore ps3. This will put it back to it's facotry settings which may resolve the issue. But if not then it is certainly overheating

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps. Also be sure to rate whether this helped or not.

From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.

Playstation 3 at power on, light becomes white then blinks red


Probably and overheating problem. Here's what I suggest:

Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.

You might also consider a System Restore if you can do it before it shuts off.
