Vidzone just killed my PlayStation :(

[ Edited ]
123 Replies 4,060 Views edited 11-06-2009

Just used VidZone for the first time. I set a video playing, it buffered then just as it started my PS3 turned it's self off and shows a flashing red light. I've turned it off at the back and back on again and when I do, the fan starts up for about 2 seconds then shuts off again with the blinking red light!

 

Not happy.

 

Anyone else having problems? What does a blinking red light mean? I don't think it's overheating becuase I'd only just turned it on and the fan didn't kick into high gear or anything.

I seriously hope it's just overheating but like I said, the fan didn't kick up. I'll try it again in a few hours and hope for the best but Vidzone's getting deleted straight away.

Don't forget that if the fan didn't kick in then it could cause it to overheat. The fan is more than likely software/firmware controlled so if you get a glitch in the software then the fan might not kick in when its supposed to.
