Hi,
The flashing light problem is caused by the PS2 chip inside the the PS3 60 Gig consoles. The PS2 chip can't handle the heat that the PS3 occasionally runs at and carks it leaving the whole system useless. .Re: Flashing red light and PS3 will not start.There is one successful outcome that could have a possibility for solving this situation.
Press the power button on the PS3 you will hear a beep noise striaght away but don't let go yet! Still hold the power button for a second beep then let go. You will see the Sony Entertainment theme song and then it will come with screen displays and information similar to when you first powered up the PS3. If this does not help ring the Sony Playstation customer helpline. This can be used for all technical and warranty problems. Alternatively post here and see if someone can help you.If your country is not listed here, please visit http://www.playstation.com/ Click the relevent region for where you are, then in the top right click Help & Support - please read through before contacting Sony to see if your problem is listed.To find the telephone number, please choose "Contact Us".
Thank You for contacting Fixya. Please let me know if you need further help else please accept the resolution.

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.

PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one spot.playstation will no


Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

When i turn system on and hit reset red light comes on and system won't eject disk


well the same thing happened with mine only it was the RROD but in order to get the disk out

1. turn off the switch in the back
2. hold the power button down AND the eject button at the same time
3. and while you are doing that reach around to the back of the system and turn the switch back wait 1 second and the fans will kick on

THE DISK SHOULD COME OUT IF NOT PRESS THE EJECT BUTTON

HOPE THIS CAN HELP!!

No sound or lights


make sure the yellow wire has power all the time and the red wire has power when the key is on. Most likely you do not have power to the red.

I have playstation 3 model # CECHH01, a game is inside, when i power on the light goes green, then quickly goes blue then yellow and goes back to red and powers off leaving the red light blinking. What do...


well sounds like your PS3 needs to be reflowed or reballed. I would highly recomend you have a professional do the repair. as fas as having a game stuck inside the machine you can get it out in under 10 seconds by doing this.<br /> <br /> 1) turn off power switch in back of ps3<br /> 2) place finger on eject button and hold there while ps3 is off ( no red light) <br /> 3) while holding finger on the eject button turn power switch on the back of ps3 on , hold finger on eject button untill the disk ejects.<br /> 4) turn power switch off and have unit repaired or replaced. <br /> <br /> if unit is covered by warranty and you send it to sony you must get your disk out of the system as you will NOT get it back if you send it to sony. Most reputable repair shops will return your disk with the system or give it to you before they take the system in for repairs. I ALWAYS give the game disks back before a customer leaves my shop as it leaves me with less to keep track of.

My console starts to turn on ,then shuts down!!!


try reseting your video settings by holding the on;off button for about 5 seconds when turning on . if this doesn't work, must be a problem with your hardware. then you should take the system to a support centre.

about the disk, have u tried to turn the system on by pushing directly the eject button ?

DVD Eject tray stuck


I took a stake knife from the kitchen and pried open the tray door as I hit the eject button this got it to open, I then cycled eject and close, eject close a few times and this did the trick, I even played a DVD and that worked fine also. I had the problem with the tray not opening, and the display would read OPEN when I hit eject and I could hear it trying to open. So I wanted to make sure the tray wasn't just stuck or wedged before I took the system apart and looked for sripped out plastic gears or the belt being broken. GoodLuck rayruiz10@yahoo.com

DVD stuck won't eject


You must unplug the unit from the wall for 1 minute (this allows the unit to reset). Then plug the unit back in but before you turn it on press and hold the eject button and then turn it on, it will eject the disk.
