Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Red light of death is one of the major PS3 problems but it can be fixed. Now there is no need to spend hundreds of dollars by sending it to the repair shop and waiting for 2-3 weeks.
You can repair the console with PS3 Repair Manual very easily. This PS3 fix guide would save you time and money for sure. Hope it would be useful for you!

Red Light Of Death! Common on 1st 60gb models, and also on the noisy 40gb, and other early version ps3's. Basically your graphics card has overheated causing a dry joint on one or several of the contacts on the board. Some pc repair shops offer a quick fix for around £80. Don't bother the repair will probably last around 5mins. I learnt from experience. The equipment needed to carry out a proper repair costs thousands of pounds, and uses infra red technology to heat and solder the graphics card back to the board. The local pc repair shop will almost definitely not have one of these machines. Sony do offer a refurbished console for around £140 and in exchange for your faulty ps3. Which personally I think is a bloody cheek. I'm on my 3rd PS3 now. Spent £500 on the first 60gb model, which got the dreaded RLOD, the same happened to my next 80gb model. I now have the 250gb slimline. Touch wood no problems!
