Help! A friend of mine's PS3 won't turn on!

4 replies 68 views Edited Apr 18, 2012

He left his PS3 downloading the last PGA Tour Game Demo, from PSN, and in the morning turned it on to install the game. After he installed it, he turned it off, and went to to college and work. When he arrived home, tonight, he tried to turn on his PS3 system, through the controller, and it put the green power light, then, after 5 seconds it turned off, not even the stand by red light.

He's tried several times, and it just won't turn on! Anyone know what's going on? any way to solve this problem? Please, help! Thanks in advance!

By the way it's a PS3 model CECH-3001A.

Is there a yellow/orange light at all, even if only for a split second?

No, only the red stand by light... My friend it's desperate! When he tries to turn on the console, it doesn't, and turns off completely (even the red light).

The PS3 in question will most likely require repair, send it in to sony or to another repair shop.

Before you send it in consider trying a new power supply/cable.
