My PS3 is acting up and I really need help with it, can someone help me?


I press thr power button and it turns on for roughly 2.5 seconds then turns itself off, red light still flashing, then I press the power buton again and it goes back to a non-flashing red light.

same thing happens over and over again.

it is still under warranty for 2 years, but I really would like to know what is wrong with it, further problems are it still has the best game ever inside it and I cant get it out (Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction), Finally I am wondering if I will get tge game back if i get it sent away and if it gets sent off will I still have all my saves and accounts when it gets back.

Any help would be much appriciated 🙂

  1. it could be the orange light of DEATH! AAAARRGHHH

    luckily my ps3 is da slim one and has a low rate of failure (hopefully, fingers crossed)

    anyway, since its still under warranty the repair would be free, the hardest thing is the waiting. i remember waiting for my ps3, the days went soooo slowly.

    bad times

  2. If it tuns to yellow at any point then it is broken you will have to call Sony up and they will send you a refurbished one tell them what game is stuck inside and they will replace it, its a painless process and you should have another in a few days. You will lose all your saved data but your online accounts will be fine as long as you remember the email address and password.
