console help,,red light,switched itself off
  • was playing my ps3 tonight,when it just switched itself off,tried to switch it back on but the light turns green,machine beeps as if its about to boot up then goes straight off again with a red flashing light??
    the console sits on a laptop cooling pad that uses a usb to help keep the console cool.
  • The cooling pad would not have been helping that much, to be honest, as there are no vents on the bottom.

    You'll likely need to contact Sony about this, it's not something that can be fixed without going under the hood.
