my playstation 3 blinks red and yellow when i turn on

By rick ·
I took my ps3 apart to fix it, since sony will not help. When I got it back and running, the power indicator light turns green for a split second and then starts flashing red. In between there, it flashes once yellow and then back to the flashing red. What does this mean? Did I correctly reinstall the green and yellow power cable with washer and screw? If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks.

re PS3 and lights....

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to my playstation 3 blinks r ...

Does anybody have a PS3 manual they can look up the meaning of blinking lights? How about you Rick? Do you have a manual? Have you read it? Have you looked on the Playstation web site for help in reading the meaning of the lights? Maybe they even had a schematic which would tell you how the green and yellow power cable SHOULD be seated. It's tough for us to see it from here.

I'm no electronics expert, but when I hear of people taking their PS3 apart

all sorts of red flags go off in my head, such as the person trying to illegally mod the unit to play pirated copies of games and such. No wonder Sony refused to help him. If the unit was legitimately damaged due to a manufacturing defect or shipping damage, Sony would have replaced it without issue, but since the user voided the warranty by cracking it open himself, he's sh-t out of luck!

What made you NEED to take it apart in the first place (apart from Sony not helping, that is).

Also, why did Sony refuse to help?

I don't think Sony refused to help. He just couldn't call them

after he took the unit apart, most likely because he was trying to illegally mod the unit and broke it in the process. That's not covered under warranty.

If one breaks, he still has 2 PS3's...and you have none.
