PlayStation 3 Malfunction

9 replies 176 views Edited Jul 8, 2013

My PlayStation 3 has been acting out very recently. When I plug it up, it just turns on by itself. After about 15 seconds of running very hard and loud it just shuts off. I would like to know what's wrong with it and how I can fix this. Please and Thank You.

That's it, it just runs very loud and hard. Doesn't show up on the TV and after it shuts off you can't turn it back on. The little red light just flashes that's bout it.

This post may be more helpful in the support tab, sounds like a technical issue you are having.

Sorry to hear that but if support isnt available in the forums i would say to highlight the support tab in the upper right of the page and hit contact sony either live support or by phone when they are available.

Its either a power supply or motherboard failure. Difficult to tell which unless you swap the power supply with another consoles to test it.
