Hello all Forum Members,
I really need your help. My PS3 just broke down yesterday. I woke up in the morning, and at about 11AM, I switched on my PlayStation, and wanted to look for some photos. I selected a picture slide show. In a few seconds, the console just shut down. I tried to switch it on again, but got first a green light, followed by a yellow light and finally a flashing red light (along with 3 beeps). The red light keeps flashing and I can't do much about it, except press the power button, and the flashing red light stops and becomes a solid red light. After doing some research, I found out that I had one of 2 problems
A) A hardware error, where one of the hardware components has failed as a result of overheating or something else.
B) A hard drive problem, according to the PlayStation 3 Repair Guide.
I found out that if it is a overheating problem, the repair would cost around Us$150.
Is it either of these problems, or is it a hard drive problem.
I have a PAL System, a CECHC04 model.
Please provide me with help, because I trust the PS3News forum more anything else. I will be more than happy to provide any info.
