Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.

SOURCE: after switching my playstation 3

Hi, its not good news im afraid the reason it shuts down and gives you a ref light is due to damage being done to the circuit board inside the ps3.
it could be that it has over heated which is often the case this could be down to dust build up or if the heat sink paste on the gpu and cpu chip has gone brittle or if you have been using the ps3 on carpet or in top of anything else that gives off heat such as dvd or sky box, these cause it to over heat really quick.

right now you have a couple of options if you have any warranty left take it back and get a refund if your warranty has run out then you could try getting it repaired but their is no guarantee the repair will work or how long it will work after the reapir.

as you have got the red light this does mean the console has over heated and their is a fault with the board so its not going to work again the way it is.

now i repair these for 25 quid plus parts so you need to look around if you want it repaired and see what the best price you can get.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

When I turn on the consolle after few seconds switch off herself , what I can Do ??


Sounds like overheating. If it's in a stack of AV equipment try moving it away from everything else, or taking stuff that might be sat on top off. Maybe hoover the vents.

If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....

Playstation turns itself off and red light flashes


it's overheating. mine is having similar problems. Sony suggests cleaning the vents with a keyboard duster. the kind that blows air, you know? If you've had it less than a year, and have proof of purchase, Sony will fix it for free. Otherwise, they ask for a $150 repair fee, but insure it will be fixed. Good luck...

if this is a desktop: Did you check the power supply? try to replace it with a new one

Laptop: Try to run the machine without the battery plugged in....straight with the adapter....If the laptop still restarts...it's a manufacturing defect which should be replaced by the OEM.
