You can salve this By taking the hard drive out but, be sure you are ground so you have any static electricity. Turn back on and you should be able open the door. turn it off to replace the hard drive.

My ps3 turn off by itself and than the red led light flashes. And somtime the whole console freezes and i would have to turn it off manually. I have had my ps3 when it first came out so its pretty old dont...


ps3 turning itself off can be a power problem try unplugging and replugging all ps3 power cords and extension cord. as for the freezing it could be many things such as certain games fallout series black ops could also be corrupted save data (often gotten from turning console off while saving) make sure you are not getting a yellow light on your ps3 when it turns itself off (the new yellow light of death for ps3 if this does occur you need to get console fixed)

My playstation 3 turned off, wont turn back on and a flashing red light appears, and it wont eject the game i had in, Solution?


This is known as the yellow light of death(ironic i know). This is caused when the solder on the board melts and bridges(connects). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Ps3 wont turn on???


Your system is getting hot......Clean the dust from the unit with a vacume...not a can of air, Canned air will only push the dirt further into the unit. also you can buy an intercooler for the ps3 nyco makes one that actually forms to the ps3
