YOLD??

7 Replies 515 Views Created 19-12-2010

Yesterday I was in town almost all day. I came home to play some Black Ops. Went to turn on my PS3 and it booted up for about 3 seconds and shut off to a blinking red light. Finally got it to work and played Black Ops for a 20 minutes to have the same problem. Left it unplugged till about 10 o'clock and watched Stepbrothers. Now this morning I can even turn it on long enough to do the fan test. Stays on for about 1 second. Any ideas on the problems or how to fix?

Re: YOLD??

You can reflow it but it's only a temp fix. You can go to Sony and get a refurb (if you're out of warranty they'll charge you) but I wouldn't recommend their shoddily repaired machines.

Best bet is to buy a new one and try and sell the old one for spares, or get it fixed up and sell it on.

Re: YOLD??

Which PS3 model is it that you have?

All signatures sucks, especially those with images in them.
