The playstation 3 can recognize when it is overheating or it has a hardware malfunction. Check to make sure what the status light is trying to tell you. If it is red and blinking its most commonly an overheating problem or a hardware failure issue. Make sure your ps3 is in a well ventilated place and check to see that there is nothing obstructing the vent on the console. If you see a buildup of dust or dirt take a can of compressed air and clean the vents. You can also listen to see if the physical fans are running, many times overheating is caused by fan failure. If a fan failure is located or if none of the above troubleshooting steps resolve the issue contact Sony's help line, you might need to set up service.

On switch button turns green and immediatley turns off again. My disc in the beggining stoped spinning eventhough i can here it trying to spin


Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.

If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.

Disc won't eject & stops working


your disc tray is jamming on an intermittent fault and when it does work it is recording each time the eject botton is being pressed so when your watching movies or playing games it tries to eject the disc tray and causes an automatic shutdown it will definately neet proffesionally repaired and should cost about 30-40 pounds and get a guarantee with it bacause these faults can come back to haunt you.
