Sounds like there is an issue with your power supply. Try replacing the plug that goes to your PS2 Slim. If this doesn't work, then it's an internal problem and your best bet is to contact the Playstation company

When i turn my playstation on, after 5-10 seconds it shuts off by itself and the red light keeps flashing, what do i do?


If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......
The PS3 red light problem occurs when your system refuses to boot up and has a small flashing red light on the power button. In most cases, the power button will turn from red to yellow and then back to a blinking red and the system will not boot up from there as it is supposed to.
There can be a variety of issues that cause the Playstation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard
and other functioning components. This can be caused simply by a flaw in the system or by obstructions to the fan vent such as a wall, floor, or excessive collection of dust...

I was in the middle of loading my franchise on madden when it turned off, i tried turning off the back switch and to turn it back on. the green light turns on for a second then another color of green light...


Again, people assume because it is blinking red that it is the "YLOD", better known as a hardware failure.

"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."

Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
Take care.

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

PS3 shut off with blinking red light, there is power, ejected cd.


The blinking red light means the system has over heated and normally the system will shut off by itself and will not come back untill cool.(but not in all cases does the system work completely correct in that situation).
The hard disk may possibly have something to do with this occurance, but I honestly doubt it.
It may be the system final moments until it dies but it may be fine.(the normal life span of a ps3 is about 2 yrs.)
If it's not just the system crapping out it may juss be the power supply and I would do some trouble shooting in that area but again,I am doubtful.
Smart thinking about taking the game out and I would advise don't put it back in until you know for sure that the system is good (because honestly MW2 is TOO awesome to risk it!!)
If all else fails, you could call SONY but if they can't fix it over the phone then they will want you to trade for a refurbished system for $150 or if its under warranty it's free.
I hope I have helped and I hope it all works out!!!!

TV turns on, then turns itself off about 2 seconds later.


set has a self diagnostic---after set does shut down press and hold MENU AND DEVICE(INPUT) buttons on front of set for 5 seconds----if 2 blinks, a pause and 2 more blinks: this is short protection error code---The set does use 2 Stk394-250 and each is protected by a pico fuse in the power supply---if either fuse is blown the set will shut down(it detects no voltage or missing voltage;) It is not uncommon for a shorted IC to cause this problem; if you locate the STK's look carefully at the resistors around them---if any are discolored or burnt---you have found your problem.

I press the power button, and it lights up and I


ok so in this situation you need to call sony. its broken, but there have been reports of people "roughing up" their ps3's to get them to work, try unplugging everything, and flipping the power switch to off, on your ps3, then plugging it all back in and turn the witch on, they say after about the 4th to 5th try you can get it to boot up, my suggestion is to never turn it off after that, but dont hold me accountable for whatever happens. this is what ive read on the internet

PS2 Shuts Itself Down


hmm, annoyingly this is quite a common problem on the early releases of the slimline Ps2 models. The power supply units get to hot and can cause this problem. I'd recommend getting an updated PSU unit which will be available online

Playstation 3 at power on, light becomes white then blinks red


Probably and overheating problem. Here's what I suggest:

Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.

You might also consider a System Restore if you can do it before it shuts off.
