My ps3 wont turn on and flashes red press once stops flashing pressed again and it starts to turn on (green light) then stops and beeps then flashes red


Hello
This is due to a hard drive fault.Try removing the hard drive and reinstalling it.
Also while it is out, use a can of compressed air to blow all dust from your ps3.

If the above does not work your going to need a new hard drive.

My playstation3 stopped working on 23/5/10. very hot day. now it starts momentarily then cuts out within 1 second. red light flashes. then an amber/yellow light. help


your ps3 has a under powered fan... you will have to mail you ps3 in to get fixed.. they will give you a ps3 they fixed. The new ps3 will have a more powerful fan.. but it will bug the **** out of you.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

My ps3 has the flashing red light!!


HI, your power supply unit has failed. you will need to replace this power supply unit asap to restore normal functions.

I would invest in some cooling enhancement in the future to prevent this type of failure.
