March 14, 2010 - PRLog -- The PS3 blinking light error is one of the most common problems on Sony's newest gaming platform. It is a frustrating error to experience, and renders your console almost completely useless until it is fixed. However, the good news is that this problem can be fixed, usually in under one hour. With the right advice and information you will be able to get your PS3 working again, and without the blinking red or yellow light error.

There are a number of different PS3 repair services out there that offer to be able to fix your console. You can also send your console back to Sony in order to have them try to fix the PS3 light of death error. Before you turn to either of these options, you should firstly attempt to get rid of the blinking light on your PS3 yourself. Below you will find a few simple steps you can take to try and repair your PS3 console yourself.

1) Power down your console and leave it switched off for at least 30 minutes. Once this time has elapsed you can then turn it back on again. The reason that this method often works when trying to fix the yellow or red light of death is that the error is sometimes caused by overheating. By allowing your console sufficient time to cool down it will hopefully be able to work again. Please note, however, that this is only a temporary fix.

2) From time to time problems can be caused on the PS3 platform by network connection errors. If you connect your console to the Internet via a wireless connection then turn off your router/modem and restart it. Also, using an actual "wired" Internet connection is advisable wherever this is possible.

3) When your console is powered down, remove the hard drive, and then carefully re-install it. Take the utmost care possible to ensure you don't damage it, however. From time to time doing this has worked for gamers who have been trying to fix the flashing light error on their PS3 consoles.

If none of the above methods worked properly, don't despair. There is still one more way that you can repair your PS3 yourself. In order to do this you will need a PS3 repair guide, which is an eBook that contains the instructional material you need in order to be able to successfully fix the blinking light problem on your Playstation 3, and without risking damage to it.

A good PS3 repair guide will enable you to accurately and safely carry out all of the necessary and more complex repairs that your console requires in order to function correctly again. Because these repairs involve  actually opening up your console and manipulating the delicate internal components, you really do need accurate and reliable instructions. The best place to get these therefore is from a repair guide.
