Please help PS3 broken?

15 Replies 384 Views Created 02-01-2009

Hi, i am askin on behalf of a friend. Basically the other dayi went on to the PS3 and sent him a message. He then replied to me and he was playing COD4 at the time. Then after he replied his PS3 turned off and wouldnt turn back on. When he does attempt to turn the ps3 on the light on it goes from a solid red, to solid green, to solid yellow and then flashing red with a couple of beeps. It then turns off and when he turns it back on again it repeats the process.

 

Has anyone come across this before and is there a way that this can be fixed. Oh by the way he has an original 60gb PS3.

 

thanks.

Lol, all these VIP owners think the 60 gigs are reliable. Yet more evidence to the contrary

PS2, PS3 40 gig (320Gb upgrade) - yes the silent (best) one, Xbox 360 Elite

no, we don't think they are reliable, we just think they are the better machine.
