12 replies 261 views Edited Aug 24, 2013

So I just bought a first gen ps3 from a co-worker. **bleep** was iffy from the get go but I installed the newst updates and since then I get nothing but a flashing red screen? what the **bleep** is this? honestly I have no clue what to do . is the console shot? can this be fixed? if so would it be cheap or did I just get bf'd?. someone point me in the right direction. Thanks.

I think it's best you call Sony support and explain to them what's wrong and maybe they can help. I have no idea what's wrong with your ps3 now.

Judging by that picture it looks like the graphics card is shot.

This may be a long shot but try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. Also, when you turn on your ps3 is there any blinking red light or yellow light on it?

I'm pretty sure it's his graphics card my gaming PC did the same thing when it's card went but he's gonna need to get it repaired either way.
