PS3 switches off after turning it on even after PSU change.
A client brought in a PS3 - fat 40GB. The problem was, when it is switched on, it goes to green light, then flashes blue, then off with a red light and 3 beeps.
When she actually brought it in, I couldn't even switch it on. Stayed on a red light. Power button, eject button, and PS3 controller couldn't switch it on.
I thought it was a no brainer so ordered a new PSU. All it did was allow me to switch the power on, followed by the problem described in the first paragraph.
There was a disc stuck inside and the blue light made me think that it might be something to do with the disc. I took the disc drive out and removed the disc and put it back together. It still had the same problem.
Do you think I just need to change the disc drive or is it a power problem? Doesn't sound like motherboard problem as it doesn't get a yellow light.
Is this a good question?
