Sadly there isn't much the average user can do to fix this problem.

It's hardware related. You can try powering on the system with the hard drive removed, but it's VERY rare that will solve your problem.

Check out this guide here and this one here.

Those are DIY guides but if you're not up for the challenge I would highly recommend getting the machine fixed direct through Sony.

You can contact them @ 1-800-345-SONY.

They charge a flat 150 rate for all repairs.

Best of luck!

While playing a game console turned off and game disc is stucked inside, turn power on and light turns green for couple seconds then flashes red and turns back off, no chance to eject game disc.


Hello,
When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
Provide a proper vent for the system...
Hope this will help...

Hello, My PS3 just keeps turning itself off. I have tried to reset the system but it keeps flashing red and yellow lights and then turns itself off into standby mode? HELP......


Try removing the game inside your disc. then try removing other external hardware and slots and try again. If problem persists it might be a system problem. Please go to the shp from where you bought it and ask them for a replacement.
