Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
I have a ps3, just bought assasins creed, have had the consol for a while now and this is this first time i have used it( xbox 360 has kept me busy) i switched the consol on and it installed all the new stuff it needed, the game then started and after about 30 seconds it switched itself off, i then tried to switch it back on, the green light came on flashed orange then beeped then went red, i can hear the cd drive wanting to spin up but it dosnt, can anyone please help me, thanks
The Red light is due to the HDD (hard drive).
There is one of 2 problems:
1. The connection is loose or
2. The HDD is just bad.
This was an issue that has been discussed over in the Playstation forums and it seems that re-seating
(removing & reinstalling) the HDD has solved the problem for many but some people have just
received bad hard drives period.
If you reinstall the HDD & it still beeps 3 times & gives you the red light, then you will have to replace
If I remember correctly, PS3s use Hitachi Laptop Drives. IMO, Hitachi is not well known for good
drives. I replaced mine with a 160GB Western Digital drive I got for free a few months ago. I haven't
had any problems since.
Hitachi makes a good drive, but the ones that fail seem to fail really bad. Western Digital seems to
make the best drives and they offer a very good warranty service as well. BUT I may be wrong as your system..
