Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System
I lent my ps3 CEHCG02 40g to my mum for the night and for got to tell her not to chut it down with the switch on back, so long story short it had a message come up after shutting it self down"what can i do now ? this is what i tried the next day when it was cold as she also said it had flashing red light but she would turn off untill beeps twice and then start to play again untill it repeated this process a few times and gave up . I have managed to turn it on for a few secs and have the green light and blue light flash onece but then eject the game disc and at the same time the fans burst into action as it was ejecting then nothing but red flashing light again. hope this not too confusing?? please can anyone tell me anything i can do,have spent too much already buying this off trade me says it was a 60g but it says 40g in system info??
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!
