I have 2 of these switchs both doing exactly the same. All 8 "unit" lights are green but the power/self test light is orange. Also all 24 port packet and status lights are permanently lit with the exception of port 7 which both flash. Any ideas?
Does the lights blink? If so, you
have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of
pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the
processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not
try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could make
things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.
It can be fixed.
IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?
If you have a unit that is not
backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you
can retrieve your disc.
Power off the unit using the toggle
switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject'
button and turn the toggle switch back
from off to on. This will run a fan test
and eject your disc. Remember, this
will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the
backwards compatible units with the 4
usb port holes and the memory card slots.
