You could have a problem with your power cord which is causing your ps3 to short before the system can power on fully. try using a different power cord or check the ports of both the outlet and the ps3 to make sure there is nothing blocking anything. also, try using a different outlet.

HELP... I have a big problem with my PS3. My system was okay when I took it apart for cleaning but i completely disassembled it and cleaned the dust. I put it back together and now it wont work! When I...


Hi,

I fix PS3 Yellow Light of Death.

When you say you completely dissasembled it i guess you mean EVERYTHING?
Well did you make sure you plugged the battery back in? and Made sure all connections were placed back?

If you took off the heatsink and fan from the chips then that is why it switched off!
You should have put new paste on if thats the case!
The PS3 seems it is shutting down to protect itself from overheating and burning the chips!
The baby scratch should be ok unless it has destroyed a copper track?

Goodluck let me know how it goes and please rate!

My ps3 320gb has frozen i cannot get the game out


Turn the PS3 off as normal, then turn the power off by flipping the switch at the back so that no light are on the console at all. Once the console is off fully, hold the eject button as you flip the power switch at the back on. The PS3 should start with a loud fan whirring noise. Once powered up, release then press the eject button once or twice and it should force the game to eject.
Best of luck!

My ps3 will turn on but will not transfer audio/video to my tv.


Bill...

Try flipping the switch in the back of the PS3 off and then on so the light on the front is red... Then, hold down the power button on the front of the PS3 for about 5 seconds until you hear a "beep"... This should reset the audio/video, and you'll be able to see and hear everything... Just did it myself!!!

Wont boot fully boot up.


Try reseting your PS3. Turn your PS3 completely off by the switch in the back. Then flip the switch back on. Press on the power button and hold it until the green light comes on, beeps twice then the green light should go out, replaced by a red light. Then turn it on normally.

My ps3 wont come on


Did you check the kill switch located in the back of the PS3? Maybe you flipped it off by accident, try flipping it back on, do any lights come on in the front?

I understand how frustrating that must be. How big is the hard-drive that came with your unit? Did you buy it brand-spanking new or used? Update to version 2.2. It came out last night. Then, once that is complete, shut down your PS3. Unplug everything from your memory card ports and usb slots. Unplug the power cable at both ends (from the wall and the ps3). Then switch the PS3 hard switch (on off, lever, not the soft method of turning it on by a mere touch). Leave it that way for 10 minutes. Plug power cable back in at the PS3 and then at the surge protector/power-strip (wall). Turn in on with the switch and then use the soft method (described above) on the front. That should fix it. If not, send it back for a warranty exchange. Good luck.
