My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes


do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony

You turn the playstation 3 on and after a second it turns off


Sounds like YLOD before the red light flashes it probably starts up for like 2 seconds then the light changes to kind of a yellow color then the red light flashes. If that's the case its a hardware problem. First try letting it cool off - if no luck try taking the hard drive out - still no luck if under warranty send it in - if out of warranty and you cant pay the 150$ you can try to fix it your self at this point it could be your power supply (ebay 50$ - 80$) or reflow the mother board lots of videos on youtube for that.

Guitar hero world tour for ps3


i had the same problem but with trial and error i came up with a soulution
1. Turn on the Playstation 3
2. Plug the dongle for the drum set into an open port on the PS3, the light will begin to flash slowly.
3. Hold down the button (where the light is flashing) on the dongle until it begin flashing very rapidly. Release the button and the light continues to flash rapidly.
4. Hold down the PS button on the drum set until the red light starts flashing rapidly.
5. Within a few seconds you will get a solid light on both the Guitar Hero World Tour Drum Set and the Playstation 3.
