    I have the same problem. I was playing socom last night and my console just shutdown. Red light was flashing, I hit the button to turn the power on, it came on for just a couple seconds then right back out. I can't even get the game disc out.

    i was playing COD4 when my world collapsed around me, The screen turned black and the playstation beeped at me three times. First thing came to my head was it over heated but as that ran through my head another thought its only been on for 25 seconds. so the only way for me to shut it off and see what happend was to hit the main switch, so i did. Red light on pressed the button and then i got the green light for about a second then YELLOW and back to flashing red. Its still dead to this day. thinking maybe power supply. i saw a youtube video were a guy put in a new power supply and it fixed the problem. going to try it myself soon.

    I have a similar problem with my ps3. Whenever I power down without shutting it off from the switch in the back (i.e. the power light stays on, turning red), the next time I try to turn it on the power light will go green for 2-3 seconds, then turn yellow, beep 3 times, and turn back off; and I will have to flip the switch in the back off and then restart the system.

    I have the same problem as the other guys. I called Sony and they want a flat rate of $149.00 plus tax to fix the problem. Anyone got a sure fire cheaper solution before I send those greedy bastards any more of my money?

After using the hdmi cord, now trying to switch back to regular tv (red/yellow/white cord). Noted a few responses from similar questions, when in hdmi going to video settings but do not know which option...


Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until it goes off again.


That's it.


If it doesn't work, try this:



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.

Trying to reset ps 2 to factory


Hello :


1: Remove the battery from the left side of the PSP while it is still onThe unit will power down instantly. Wait ten seconds and then replace the battery.
2: Press both clear shoulder buttons at the top of the PSP and keep them held while the PSP reboots. A "Recovery" mode will be initiated.
3: Press down on the control pad to locate a "recovery" folder. This will contain all of your PSP content, including games, music, videos and podcasts that are saved on the device. Highlight this folder and press the "X" button to begin reinstalling your content.

Warnings :
If you would like to reset your PSP while it is working normally, you can do so by going to the Settings menu and selecting "System Reset." This will get rid of all your content and restore the PSP to factory settings (and subsequently remove all of your content.)

Or try this for hard resetting :
1: Locate your Power button on your PSP. Push the power button up for 10 seconds.
2: The PSP will and should shut off. Leave the PSP off for 30 seconds.
3: Turn your PSP back on by flicking the power button up very quickly. If it doesn't turn on, try pushing the power button forward very quickly again. (sometimes you have to do it 2-3 times)
4: Your PSP should be working now. If not, then you may have a firmware problem.


Warning:
Do not have your PSP plugged into a power supply.
If your PSP doesn't turn off after 10 seconds (of power button being help up) then remove your battery and wait 30 seconds, and then replace

good luck .
