My Playstation 3 died yesterday
So I’m bummed. I just finish watching a Blu-ray version of Sony Picture’s The Fall and start working on something else while my brother-in-law starts playing LEGO Batman. I wasn’t paying attention as I was preoccupied but the system turned off and he left the room so I figured he was done playing. I turned off the TV and receiver. A couple minutes later my brother-in-law comes back in and asks why I turned the PS3 off.
I grab the Sixaxis controller and try to power the PS3 on, but the lights on the controller just blink. Next I tried the button on the front of the console. The green light flashed followed by a yellow light once and then the red light blinked continuously until I flipped the power switch on the rear. A few tries resulted in the same.
I found this video on YouTube showing exactly what I’m getting.
The next step is to call Sony at 1-800-345-SONY (7669) and see what they have to say. From the looks of online forums I’ll have to send it in to be replaced. I’ve had this console for about a year-and-a-half so I don’t know if they’ll cover it under warranty or not.
