Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Looking for some info on repairing the Ps3 Red light of death? Look no further, for I will tell you exactly how to do that. I can tell you from experience that when you see those red lights turn on while your playing your ps3, is that it always happens at the worst time. This happened to me just ten minutes after I started playing Uncharted 2. Hopefully what I tell you can get you back to playing your favorite Ps3 games back in no time.

In order to do a Ps3 red light of death fix, please do these 4 simple things to see if this is just a minor glitch, or a serious problem. Step 1: Simply restart your console. Believe me sometimes this works. This worked on my older 40 gig Ps3 model. Step 2: If step 1 did not work, turn your console off and take all the cables out of your ps3 then plug them back in and then turn it back on. Step 3: If step 2 doesn't work, take out the hard drive and put it back in and then turn it back on. Step 4: If step 3 did not work, then try a combination of both Steps 2 and 3 and then turn it back on.

If these 4 simple steps did not work, then it is highly likely that your Ps3 is in some serious need of a fix. You'd have to open up your Ps3 and then fix the problem from within. This of course is not an easy task. So I'm gonna list 3 simple steps to get your Ps3 red light of death fixed.

Step 1: If your Ps3 is still on warranty, I would ship it to Sony for the fix. Take full and complete advantage of their warranty. Sony will certainly get the job done. Then again, there are a few drawbacks to using this method though. For starters, there is gonna be a hefty wait time before you get your Ps3 back. About a month or two. Another major problem is, if your warranty has expired. You'll have to fork over a $150 bucks to get it fixed. Ouch!

Step 2: Have you ever seen those ads out on Craigslist about Ps3 repair? How about a local electronics store advertising that they repair game systems and consoles? This is another option. Find a local game console repair shop and get your Ps3 fixed there. This option is for those whose warranties have expired and don't want to fork over as much cash. These repair shops usually charge between $60 and $75 dollars. Wait times can vary anywhere between 1 to 3 weeks. Keep in mind that there are a few drawbacks to using this method. One major drawback is that most of these repair shops are NOT certified by Sony. Not being certified means Sony will NOT back their work.When you do get your Ps3 back, they can't guarantee it will work. Go ahead and ask them. You are taking a big chance if you take it to an unauthorized repair shop. If you are gonna take a chance, why not entrust that chance to yourself? See the next step!

Step 3: Now the ball is in your court. If you were willing to entrust some stranger to fix your Ps3, why not fix it yourself?

Why let some stranger fix your ps3 while you could easily do it yourself and save yourself time and money in the process. Their is a Ps3 repair guide out there that will teach you exactly that. I can vouch from personal experience that it works! Most tech savvy people can do it within an hour. Well I'm not tech savvy, but I still managed to repair my Ps3 in under two hours. It's perfect for beginners who don't have a clue about electronics. It comes with a step by step video demonstration on how to perform each step. In my opnion the videos did wonders. I'm the kind of person that needs to see something done before doing it. And if your one of those people, then this guide is for you.
