I turn power switch on, fan runs really fast for a minute, 4 quick beeps, then shuts down, no lights or anything

Do you have a disk stuck inside? Many issues have simple fixes. For some reason, when the Blueray drive fails to read a disk, it sees it as a fault and shuts the system down. If you don't have a disk in, try putting one in and see if that turns your system on. Also, the PS3 system auto recognizes the audio/video connection. If you don't have it connected to your video source,(TV, Projector, etc.) It won't turn on properly. Just some things to think about, and I hope this helps. Good luck. ^^

PS3 stuck on red light after it froze up. I unplugged it and replugged it and it's still stuck on the red light. It doesn't change or anything even after hitting the power button.

It would help, if you posted the model number of your system, as they do vary sightly. Is there a disk inside they system? This could be the main problem in witch there are several solutions to remove it. If not, than try inserting a disk, as the PS3 auto recognizes a disk being inserted and turns on the system. If the light is on, and it wont let you power it on, then generally it's the stuck disk problem. ^^ Hope this helps, and good luck.

My fat 60 GB PS3 just stopped working. How do I get a game disc out before I send it in for repair?

You can try a force eject:
With the PS3 in standby you hold the eject button for 15+ seconds.

If that doesn't work, the repair forms have a place for any media that is stuck in the machine so it must be fairly common with failed units for the media to become stuck inside.

If you open the case up, you will probably void the warrantee. If you decide to go ahead and open it, here are instructions that will show you how:

There is a silver strip inside that will tell the Sony technicians that you have opened the unit, voiding any warrantee. My recommendation is to put down what disk is on the return form paperwork, which they will return to you when it is finished.

Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Theres a game stuck inside the machine and no game icon appears on the screen indicating i can load

Have you recently picked up or moved your PS3 console and carried it? The disk may have fallen out of the slot in the PS3 causing it to slip INTO the ps3.... This may be a serious problem and you may have to open it up to retrieve your disk, otherwise SEND IT IN!
