Hey did you try a hard reset?
Shut the system off then turn it on.
You should now have the red light on the ps3.
Hold the power on and it will kick green beep then go back to red.
Then try to push power again.
If not it may be the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.

it sounds like your motherboard is shutting itself off to protect itself from overheating or some other system failure. you should verify all your fans are running at the correct speed. if it seems like everything is running fine, you can probably turn that off in bios. obviously if there is something wrong with the fans, then you need to replace them. Another options is maybe the processor is getting too hot which is why it's shutting down. open the case and remove the heat sync from the board so you can see the processor. clean the thermal paste off the processor and apply a new generous layer. put the heat sync back on and then try and restart. make sure before you do ANY of this you unplug the computer! good luck and let me know if it works!

Console wont except disk,beeps three times then yellow light comes on?


your ps3 has the Yellow Light Of Death, inside the console there is a processor which gets realy hot and after a while the tiny balls of solder underneath the processor start to fracture and so the necessary connections with the other parts of the system are lost. Its very common problem with 60gb and some 40gb ps3 after about two years old, im afraid its not easily repaired unless you send it to a specialist YLOD repairer, it will cost around 70 pounds and you probably only get 3 or 6 months warranty on the repair, if you decide to pay for this repair, check up on feedback from other customers and get the best warranty you can find. Best advice i can give is sell ps3 for parts and upgrade to ps3 slim.

My ps3 wont turn on


Hi There,

Your Processor needs reflowing (re soldering on the board) as the system over heated, it caused stress on the solder joints underneath.

Sony charge £150 and give a month warranty to repair it.

We charge £60.00 and give a 6 month warranty.

My PS3 wont start up. when i turn it on i get noting no sound or image .


Check your HDMI (looks like USB connetion) Connection or your Composite video connection (yellow, red, white connections.) Make sure they are correct and tight on both your TV and PS3.
Most common connection to use 1st is the Composite video connetions. Yellow is your Video display; Red and White are your Sound!

Good Luck.
