Ps3 turns on then straight off

11 Replies 10,045 Views Created 09-09-2010

so i fixed my ps3 yesterday and turned it on after fixing it and it came on, so i went downstairs for a minute or 2 when i came back up the ps3 was turned off, so i tryed turning it back on with the touch button and it didnt work so i flicked the switch at the back and again to turn it back on and the ps3 started up automaticly, but only comes on for a few seconds, and nothing shows on the tv. it beeps the usual to start up, beeps again, and turns of. is this a power failure?

ive read a few posts like this and people say its the power supply, is this correct?

thanks

Answered my own question there, it was the touch pad like the eject and power button, its like there constantly pressing :), So i flcicked it on this morning while open, waited for green light took cable to touch buttons out and it stayed on. But unfortunatly it does not read discs now so im guessing the blueray player/lense is also nackered. Lmao

unlikely to be the power supply I would say - both something obviously isn't right!

When you say you 'fixed' it - what exactly did you do?

have you got the hard drive in it yet??? I just read the comments on you tube :lol:

 

trying to press the eject button won't do nothing unless you have a disk in :lol:

 

you haven't got a power failure because the red/green light is on so power is fine......

Whilst not having an HDD will definitely cause issues ;), you are correct in thinking that it should be at least giving you a message about it being missing... :(

Which implies that there COULD well be something more serious going on (as well).

Unfortunately, having done a DIY 'fix' you are now in the boat of having no one to go back to - and to be a little bit brutal, the DIY 'reflow' fix, whilst it works for many people, there are some POTENTIALLY huge risks in doing it...
And it does look like you may have hit hard up against them :(

Fingers crossed that when you put a drive in, it will be ok - but I'm not certain it will be I'm afraid :(

depending on how much you striped it down to do the 'fix', all sorts of things could have become disconnected :(

If you did the whole "point a heat gun / hairdryer" at things, goodness only knows what might have meted that shouldn't have :(
