Please help PS3 broken?

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.

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

ok so this replacement you are getting. Will it be a brand new 60gb ps3 or a refurbished one? He is thinking of going out and buying a new 80gb one fixing the 60 and then selling it now. Bloody Technology!

I think the 60GB club should have it's name changed from VIP to RIP.

Avoiding GAME/Gamestation.
Ripoff prices, poor value on trade ins and shoddy customer service.
Latest trade in comparison, Mario Kart Wii with Wheel:
GAME offered a measely £8
HMV offered a huge £25.

Care to elaborate? Just where have I been immature?

Don't throw a random insult if you can't back it up.
