My ps3 keeps shutting down.

8 replies 122 views Edited May 8, 2013

First, my ps3 will turn on, the green light comes on but nothing shows on the screen. After about 20 seconds, the ps3 shuts down, there is not red light, i need to press the button in order for the red light to show. I press the button again and the cycle continues.

I have tried that, that was my first thought but the fact that nothing shows on the screen when the green light is on makes me think it isn't a power issue.
