Was browsing internet via ps3 an it just went off!! tried to switch it back on, the green light came on for second then changed to a yellow colour then went off again but the red light just kept blinking,...

Hello, unfortunately this is called YLOD (yellow led of death) it is reported to happens on phatty PS3. There are few guides online with DIY methods to get rid of it, but you must have good soldering skills and understand that you might compromise your console even more. If you don't have the above mentioned skill, then the best and safest solution for YLOD is to call Sony support. If you still have warranty coverage, the fix will be for free, if you're out of warranty then they usually ask about 120/140 USD, but they'll give a 3 months warranty. Good luck anyways Peter

I have the same beep beep problem when trying to turn on


Your best option is to save yourself some money. I had a friend who's PS3 gave them the yellow light, then 3 beeps and just blinked red. I found a vid on youtube that shows you to fix it. It worked for the very first time. However, you will need to "void" your warranty on your PS3, also you will need to purchase equipment (heat guns, tools, thermal compound). Check out the video first to get a feel as to what you will need to do and see if you even wanna go down that road.

If not, you can sell it on Ebay (people are paying about $150-$200 for a broken system, you can then use that money to buy yourself a Xbox or something. Good luck in whatever you choose and let me know if you need anything else.

Ps3 put up a error code 8001002B when I put a game in

you are going to have to go to System Settings and Restore PS3, this will delete everything but it will start you out fresh and brand new like when you boght your ps3.

Ps3 wont read aney discs

This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.

Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...

You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!
If you are happy please feel free to rate me THANKS!

Wii is making me think ps3

if you had 2 year warranty at bestbuy your should have just brought it there for a new one, and even the refund for wii would not able you to get a PS3 they are unreasonably over priced and they're prices hardly go down at all, the reviews haven't been that great and alot of sony products (PS1, PS2, and PS3) breakdown like your wii if you are ditching your wii I would suggest a Xbox 360

Will not power up

hi the problem sounds like the unit has overheated this is common problem with ps3 i see alot of these problems all the time sometimes you can be lucky and just replace the power relay transformer inside the ps3 but most the time its the whole board that needs replacing.
The best thing to do is check your warranty and get it repaired this way as getting it repaired would cost as much as a new ps3 also its not a repair you can do yourself as you might need the software reinstalling as after they overheat it usually corrupts the data on it.
How old is the ps3 the only other option you have got is buy a damaged one off an auction site but buy one that lights up but dont come on then you might be able to make one out of the two.
I have been buying ps3 that dont work for next to nothing but i had to buy 8 or 9 before i could get one to work by swapping parts.
Let me know what you want to do check your warranty as this is common fault they might even repair it if warranty has run out it has been known if its common fault

Looking at PS3

Hi Rookie Buyer,


I am an Experianced Ebay Membr and have bought many Video Game Consoles from ebay. Now I also run a Video Game Console Service called the Playstation Clinic. The problems i have repaired so far on PS3 consoles have only been bad solder joints.  Now, not many peiople are sending their PS3 systems to aftermarket repair services. Sony is still good about servicing the PS3.  If you buy it from Ebay, you will not have a store receipt. And in turn the chance that Sony will honor the warranty, is very deminished.

I do not like buying from stores that cannot tell me details of what is wrong, your taking a big chance here.

Your best to get a Used PS3 on Ebay from a individual with high Feedback score percentage above 98%, and a count around 50 to 400. Also inside the USA. China does not package stuff very well. They ship fast, but they will send you a crytal glass in a paper bag and not even mark it fragile.
