Thanks

Hi Lando -

Think it just has a flashing red light, won't switvh on or run and can't extract the game disc. Not good!

1st to eject your game.

turn the ps3 off from the plug.

now hold the eject button

now turn plug on but keep the eject button held down till disc comes out

This will force eject the disc. If you hold the eject button for like 15 seconds smile

2. now for the flashing red light

turn off the ps3 then turn it on as soon as you turn it on hold power till you hear 3beeps I'll put vid on so you know what to do smile

hope this helps.

Managed to get the game out, using your recommended technique, thanx!

Unfortunately, the re-set procedure did not work, so we'll have to get a replacement PS3 - worth a try, anyway, ta again!!
