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.

Hi I'm having the exact same problem and really struggling with it. So what was the verdict? Do we know where the problem is originating and how to repair it?

looks to me like YLOD without yellow....

 

anyway - maybe try holding power button for longer time (10 seconds +) - this would force reset or at least you should see recovery menu. If you are unable to enter recovery mode you ps3 in dead....

Sounds like the YLOD. it can be repaired. Gilsky has made videos for fixing the ps3. another site would help is http://www.ps3lightsfix.com. when mine YLOD, I actually flux/re flowed my ps3's motherboard. after that was done, I used Arctic Silver 5 heat sink compound. it works ever since. Gilsky's fixing PS3 videos are on youtube.com.

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)
