PS2 Slimline Red Light Blinking

My children's PS2 has intermittent blinking red status light. Manual says this means overheating, but happens after console has been unplugged for hours. I am pretty technologically inclined, but I can't find an obvious problem with loose solder joints on the board or anything like that, that would normally cause an intermittent problem. When the box does work, the fan is running.

Thanks,
Dave

Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...


Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

Ps3 red light keeps blinking


Step 1: Check Your Console
One of the biggest causes of the blinking red light problem is placing the console with the fan vents sitting against the floor or up against a wall where air cannot flow freely in and out of the console.
So, start by checking your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep the vents clean and unobstructed.
Step 2: Test the Hard Drive
Now, find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial damage inside your unit. It could possibly be a problem with overheating which causes problems with the motherboard, especially if you had your console on the floor or up against a wall.
Step 3: Unplug
The last in-home remedy to fix PS3 red light blinking is to unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with problems other than overheating. If it doesn't work, then you have more substantial damage to your console motherboard.
Yet, that doesn't mean the console is useless! Continue on to find a permanent solution to the problem.

If all this doesn't work go through this mannual to have step by step instructions for solving this problem http://www.gamingupholds.com/ps3-repair-guide.aspx

Ps2 shuts and starts blinking red light


To confirm: red light blinking does mean that the console is overheating, which I know from experience.

Solution: Do not leave on carpet or any materials similar as they insulate. If possible, leave the console vertical instead of horizontal and this will help cool the system. Better yet, if you can still find one, a USB fan that plugs onto the front of your grill.

Hope this helps.

Light turns on, light turns yellow, light turns red and blinks.


Your ps3 has overheated. This is the equivilent to the red ring of death for xbox 360. The ps3 problem is called "yellow light of death" this means your ps3 has died due to the console being overheated. The solution to this problem is either getting a new playstation or take it to a shop in the UK and they could help you fix it for a price around £30-£50 GBP.
