Call Sony, or dismantle it and find the circuit break on the motherboard and repair it.

Playstation shutdown and the indicator light flashes red? when i touch the button it goes to solid red, when i touch it again to turn it on the light goes green momentarilt the goes to flashing red???


That is also known as the yellow light of death because of the momentary flash of amber color. The issue here is overheating, meaning that the processors have become unseated due to unit overheating and motherboard flex in hot conditions. You PS3 will need to have the motherboard "reflowed", which is a heating process that reseats your solder joints on the motherboard. A trained Sony repairman or Sony themselves can repair it, but it will cost ya. I do repairs of this type quite often. If you are savvy enough, and have the correct tools for the job, there are videos on youtube that explain how to repair the PS3. Good luck!

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off


you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

Ps3 shutdown?


hi..Seems like your Power Supply went dead or either a faulty button.. Since those are touch pads those sometimes wear out. Another issue could be due to overheating..
