Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

Flashing red light will not eject game


if you turn it on, and it goes green then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red, then your ps3 has overheated and been damaged. you can fix it with the heat gun trick, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

but it will only break again.

try flipping the switch in the back, then hold the eject button while you flip the switch back on, that should eject the disc.

SYSTEM DOES NOT TURN ON. FLASHES, SHUTS OFF, NO EJECT


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have your PS3 serviced by Sony. To eject your game, flip the power switch on the back of the PS3 to off. Then press and hold the eject button and turn the switch back to on again. This should eject the disc. Best of luck with the repair.

Disc will not eject


Disc stuck is not a big issue. Don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself.
Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved the same problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !

My ps3 won't load the discs...


Hi, if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Thanks and take

Turn off your PS3 entirely. Then, flip the backswitch and Eject button at the same time. The cooling fans will start to blow at max capacity to blow out all the interior dust. even ejects discs

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.
