Sounds like you have the yellow light of death to fix this you will need to stop the heat build up getting to the chips and you can do this with a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

The reason why its happening is because your GPU (Graphic Process Unit) has been separated from the motherboard. your system see this issues and prevents it self from turning on so it wont get more damaged then what it is. in order to fix your system your chip must me re-solder back to its mother board, we suggest for a professional or sony them self

Playstation 3 turns its self off after 20 minutes


PS 3 is getting heated up. Keep it in a place where there is free flow of air. Make sure that the vents are not covered up. When PS 3 gets heated up, it has built in mechanism which shuts it down. When it cools down it works again.

My ps3 broke and the red light is blinking....


hi there

This is Red light of death and in the gaming world its known as the RLOD.

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards
