Hi my name is Juan and I do sell and fix playstation 3's so I know your problem very well this is similar to the xbox360 red ring of dead for now your ps3 is dead but I do have the system to fix this problem is not like the xbox360 that almost everybody can fix ps3 is more complicated and it requires an special system call rework station this is where you heat the motherboard with the system and everything is controlled by computer all the timers and heat settings are well controlled to bring the right amount of heat and melt the solder again under the VGA chip so if you want to see your system running again let me know thanks

SOURCE: ejecting disc with 3 red lights

Hi scara_manga,
Not good news unfortunately. That red light that comes on is also known as "the ring of death".
there is only one way i know of correcting this situation.
as weird as it sounds
you need to overheat the xbox 360 in order to get it working correctly again. i know this as i have one myself and been in the same situation.
you need to switch the console on then wrap a towel around it and leave it for approx 30mins.
this should return it to its correct working order.

Hope this has helped :)

SOURCE: the red light keeps blinking and won't eject disc

You have the dreadful blinking red light of death. Long story short the system is broken and you have a few options:

  1. send the system to sony and receive a refurbished system for $150.
  2. find a local to do it for much cheaper
  3. watch vids on the web (youtube.com) and fix it yourself but it is fairly difficult.
  4. buy a new ps3.
I hope I have helped and feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it goes.

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

My PS3 80Gb shows the red standby light as normal. When I push the power button, I hear one beep, as the light go from red, to green, to off, and then finally back to red again. If I push the eject button...


Does the lights blink red? If so, You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



IT CAN BE FIXED*





IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.



You will have to have the system repaired so that you can eject the disc the normal way. If the technician cannot repair your system, simply ask him to remove your disc.

The game cd cannot be ejected from the PS3. When the eject button is pressed the red light keeps blinking.


Try the following solution.

Turn the PS3 off with the main switch on the back.
Turn the PS3 back on into standby (red light on)
While holding the eject button press the power button on the front of the PS3. This should initialize a forced disc eject.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
