SOURCE: flashing red light and disk wont eject

Im afriad your going to have to buy a new playstation3 console. Sony no longer produce 60Gb consoles and they will not replace or repair your console. Im guessing youve had your 60Gb for over one year so theres no warranty.
Sad to say but you have to buy a new one. eBay have some good offers. ;)

SOURCE: flashing red light, turns on

hi, the problem you are having is due to the ps3 over heating, if you have any warranty on it then take it back and get it exchanged, you wont be able to get the game out without it working or without taking the dvd drive apart.

to fix the ps3 your going to need to have the gpu and cpu chips heated up using a reflow station as the problem your having is with the solder on these chips what happens is when it over heats the solder cracks and you lose the connection with the circuit board so you need to get the solder reflowed to create a circuit again, its not something you can do yourself as you need special equipment to have it reflowed,

i do these repairs myself so now how difficult it is to get it right, shop around and see what price you can get, the actual problem you have got is called yellow light of death its called this as the red light flashes yellow just before it flashed red, it is worth getting fixed so shop around and see what price you can get.

if you have any warranty left then this is covered im sure sony cover this fault under warranty for 3 years but you will need to check this either by calling them or checking on their site.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts,

im sorry i couldnt give you an easy fix but without taking it apart and reflowing the gpu and cpu chip their is just no way of getting it working again

X-rays can fog many types of film. If you are flying you can declare that you have film, and have them manually inspect it rather than sending it through the x-ray machine.

What do I do if my instamax mini 8 has all the setting lights flashing and the red light on the viewfinder on?

Had the same problem and discovered the motor driving the mechanism was not properly aligned. Remove the film. Take the back off the camera by removing all the screws you can see plus one under the cover where the film exits and 2 in the battery compartment. Loosen or remove the 2 screws holding the motor. The motor is located just down from the viewfinder, on top of the push button to take a picture. Turn the camera on and take a picture. The motor and gears should work, Let it run through its cycle and tighten the screws when the motor is in the proper position for smooth operation. I had to use 2 screws from the camera body to get the motor to stay in the proper position. ( i used the ones from the battery compartment)
camera now works as it should.
