First the PS3 doesn't use flash memory, it uses a 2.5in SATA hardrive. It can't be that there is no OS, otherwise the PS3 would write it to the hardrive, it must be corrupted or have some other problem.

I would recommend buying a 2.5in SATA hardrive - they're very cheap. Ask in store for one, or you can get one from Play.com. If that doesn't work, it's a problem with the PS3 itself and you should phone Sony.

My playstation turns on but then turns off straight away


check if you have a disk in your PS3. I f you do, try replacing it with one you know works. You can also try disconnecting your PS3 from the TV and power and wait 20 mins before reconnecting - might be an overheating issue.

hope the above helps.

Let me hear from you again.

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.
