This playstation can already have a burn main board because of what happen, and I believe your insurance needs a written information from the manufacturer which is Sony before they replace it, unfortunately we're not connected with Sony this is Fixya...So better contact Sony so you can have it replace from your insurance...

Hope that helps...

Sony playstation model no.scph- 39001 wont run browser


There are no browser on playstation 2, for an online play you need a network adaptor or slimline ps2. Still when i checked for example killzone 1 multiplayer like 5 years ago one lonely person was playing so it's not worth the cost and trouble.

My machine just cut off and a red light was blinking-touch it went green for a second back to a red light. I unpluged it and a few hrs later plugged it back in and did the exact same thing going to a...


Hello there gallant

If you have the brief flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.

The lights are a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the YLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

Best regards

Red light on, once push button turns green for couple seconds then red again. nothing turns on or stays on. ps2 thin


I had this exact same problem a while back on a PS2. Turns out that I had a power surge and some of the internal components were fried. I sent it in to Sony and they had it back to me within a couple of weeks. You may not have had a power surge, but it is still possible that something inside the system has gone wrong. Have you spilled anything on it recently? That could also be an issue. Unfortunately, it is no secret that the Playstation was a relatively buggy console, so there have been numerous problems. Assuming that you didn't have a power surge or spill liquid on it, I would say your next best option would be to call Sony and see how much it would be to fix it. It might be almost cheaper to buy a new Playstation 2, if that's possible.

I was playing call of duty my ps3 turned off after that if i turn it on it freezes up and turns off. i tried reseting it through the beep double beep menu but it wont stay on long enough to finish, wtf


Through a connection in the internet
( or faulty parts whatever sony wants to tell you) playing that game ruined your Ps3 sometimes it can even be a game that you have been playing for months weeks even and something will just set it off your best bet is to find a repairman or to send it to sony and PRAY you still have a warranty (this happened to me only but 2 days ago)

Shadowing on screen


You should get a good surge protector. Sometimes some areas have a spike in the power. That will cause interference in the TV signal coming from your PS 3. Try out different surge protectors that should solve your problem.

Why did this happen?


gooood afternoon,
this problem could be caused by a few things.
The two that come to mind would be.
1. Is your ps3 overheated? have you been plaing it for a long period of time?
2.Is the power plug tampered with? Did you accidentally bump it?
Have any more information, just ask me.
Hope this help you, and happy gaming.
