PS3 has blinking red power light and nothing else


switch it off from the back,, hold down the eject button, and turn it on from the back,, it should spit the cd out,,

The ps3 needs to be sent back to be fixed it is YLOD..<--not good
it will take at least 4-6 weeks before you get your Console back. And also, if your warranty is expired, you have to pay a big fat $150,- to get the job done!

or go to youtube and look for a PS3 Ylod fix,,

Cant reboot after red blinking light


There isn't much you can do to easily fix this problem.

Try booting the PS3 with hard drive removed.

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.

Hello folks,
Please try the following and see if it helps:
  • Unplug the PS3 and let it sit for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • After letting it sit, plug it back in and let some electricity get to the battery inside the system.
  • Please wait 3-5 minutes, then turn it on.
Good luck and take care,
Chimpster
