while starting PS3 manually, it startup red light changes to green. but within fractions of second it turns back to Red.
After doing this around 6 to 7 times it finally turns on.

Afterwards i was able to play it fine for few hrs, next day its the same problem again.

Any suggestions ?

thanks

Mine does a similar thing.I think its the same heat issue as the YLOD.

Check this thread (http://www.ausforces.com/showthread.php?5432-YLOD-(Yellow-Light-of-Death!!!!)-What-now&highlight=ylod).

You could try a home repair. Ive heard its only a short term fix though and will eventually die again.

I agree with Geebz, my PS3 did a similar thing before it succumbed to the YLOD. I think your PS3 is on its way to the same fate so backup your saves while you have time!
