I'm turning on my PS3 then it turns right back off and the power light flashes red.
I've had my PS3 for 18 months so I'm out of warranty
I've had mine exactly 3 years to this date and it just started doing that. I'll try taking out my hard drive so i can get MW2 out. At least its better than the x-box.
can someone help me? because my ps3 says that i didnt turned the ps3 right off the last night and I must turn the ps3 off and then back on again.
but when i turn it on again, the screen pops up again and if I press confirm all the features of my ps3 menu's are gone

My 60gb ps3would start up then shut down after about 8/10 seconds managed to fix it today.first I downloaded the latest update from the official playstation site to an SD card( SD card needs to be larger than 1gb) then I removed the hard drive cover and blue screw then i turned on my ps3 holding down the power button until i got the request to connect a controller which i did and got the maintenance menu at this point i removed my hard drive and then pressed option 6 i then got a message no media found i then inserted my SD card and pressed start and select at the same time with the hd removed and it formatted to 99% with it still switched on i then put my hd back in and it formatted to 100% it turned its self off then restarted its self like normal after an update all working fine (however i have lost all my games saves etc)
