Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Today I went to switch on my Playstation 3 by the power button and it went from 'red' to 'green to 'yellow' to 'red' and it will not power on. Therefore I am unable to play. I am running it through an HDMI cable. Please advise.
When I turn it one i press and hold the stand by button and it goes grren to yellow back to green then red.
This is a hardware failure caused by heat. I have done TONS of research on this problem as I have a unit that is like this too. But I bought mine used. I hear that Sony will fix it or send you a replacement for FREE. I have been told by over 30 people that Sony did it for them. Just be honest and polite to the customer service people. Go to www.playstation.com choose your region, click on playstation 3, then Support (upper right corner) and there should be the contact information.
If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you!
