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.

Playstation3 has been converted to play 3d but now wont project an image does it require a hdmi cable


OK sometimes people put the HDMI cable to the PS3 and it changes the settings. Try to reset the ps3. Turn the ps3 off with just the red light showing. The hold the power button. when it beeps and the light changes keep holding it. then you with hear 2 to 3 beep right after another. When you do let the button go. The does a manual reset and whatever cables you have connected at the time should work. If this doesnt then your video card on the board might be out. I hope this helps you out.

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.
