Playstation 3 first gen? 40gb Broken?

3 replies 122 views Edited Nov 2, 2012

Hi my ps3 is really screwed up i think.  When i flip on the power switch it just turns the playstation on.  It is red for only a few moments then right to green.  Just to top that the power nor eject buttons work.   Help me please.  Also there is no sound or picture doesnt matter if i do AV cables or hdmi tried on several tv's.

Does your system act like this?:

 

 

If so you have the YLOD. A proper repair is going to cost at least $100, so you may want to consider replacing the unit entirely with one of the newer more reliable versions...

I dont think he have the ylod. My ps3 had a similar problem but different is my turn off while his stays on. When the ps3 is plug in the back and the power switch flip to on. The ps3 will automatally turn itself on without you even touching the power button on the front. It turns green, stay green for a while then turns off (no yellow light or flashing red). After that, the power or eject button on the front wont respond anymore. My fix was, i just give it a reflow and hoped it work and what you know, it worked. OP can try a reflow if he's familiar with reflowing the ps3.
