Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?
If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.
Why Does It Happen?
The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.
How To Fix?
The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.
Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!
Other Ways To Fix?
You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.
Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!
