Blue/Purple Light on Left side of Disk Slot of PS3 Slim

10 replies 1421 views Edited Apr 26, 2012

Okay last night this light came on my PS3.. of the 3 years that i had this PS3 this light has never been on my console but this afternoon i looked at my PS3 when it was off and this blue/purple light was glowing out from the Left side of the disk slot of my PS3 and so i turned it on and it still stays lit even when its turned off.. so i unplugged my PS3 and it took like 5 seconds after i unplugged it for the light to go away. what is this light for and why have i never seen it the 3 years ive had it till now? im going to include a link to a photo that i took of it so you know what im talking about. please help! and what is it or whats wrong with it? and if something is wrong with it what will i need to do to fix it? As of now i been playing my PS3 for the past 3 hours with this light on.. it runs smooth and nothing seems wrong with it.
