How to Fix Your PS3 Red Light of Death

The PS3 red light of death is one of the most annoying problems with the PS3 and unfortunately there is not a lot you can do to prevent this. It is caused by your PlayStation overheating. If you are looking for easy, cheap solution to this problem then you have come to the right place.

Firstly before you do anything I would try these 3 steps to make sure you can’t fix the problem instantly (although if you are having trouble over and over again with this then I would recommend getting the console fixed).

1. Restart your console

2. Unplug the power lead and cables then plug them back in to see if this resolves the problem.

3. Take out the hard drive and then put it back in.

If none of these steps have got your console working then I’m afraid it’s probably bad news and you need to fix your PlayStation. Don’t panic, You might be thinking to yourself now that its going to cost you a fortune to fix and your going to be waiting ages to be back playing on your favorite games.

There are 3 ways you could go about fixing your red light of death

1. Send it to Sony which will cost you hundreds of pounds and you will have to wait for possibly 6 weeks to be back playing.

2. Take it to a repair shop which could still cost you a lot of money and could still take 2-3 weeks to be repaired.

3. Fix it yourself with a simple step by step guide.
