Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
Hi, I'm from Bangalore, India and I just bought a PS3 40 GB (Made In Japan version) from Singapore. I just used for about 5 hours, it worked very well and suddenly went off..since then it is not powering on at all..the green light comes on for a spilt second and then turns red..the red light keeps blinking all the while..even the game CD is sturck in the console..it is not ejecting out..
I suspect the following must have gone wrong; The power rating on the console is written as 100V @ ~3.5A, but I used with 230V(available in India as a standard, the manual also says the PS3 will automatically adopt itself to the power supply given)..so I suspect the problem with the power supply unit..
Any other possible cause for this kind of problem and a solution please..
Someone please help me out...
Thanks for dropping a line Mr. Bug_wired. SP Road is so big to find the named shop. Any landmark or address to find it out. In fact I checked in National Market, there are many shops who repair PS2 but they dont do PS3. I would like to try my luck in SP Rd.

That does sounds like what could have happend.. ALTHOUGH I know the american red light issue has to do with the Hard Drive.. Since it played for 5 hrs that would lead me to believe that it was not the power..
Pull the hard drive out and stick it back in if that does not work put a new hard drive in the ps3.
Let me know what you come up with!
