6 months old is still under warranty. You should not attempt to fix an item that is still under warranty, instead contact the shop you bought it.

Hello, i started up my 60gb playstation last night and it ran fora few minutes then turned itself off. Turned it back on and it would stay on for a few seconds and turn off,repeatedly. Did it this morning...


If its an unwanted christmas present, I'm guessing its still under warranty, so call sony. They'll fix it for free. Your problem sounds a bit...irregular.

When i power on my ps3 it flashes yellow then turns off


have you tried the fan test i think its more than a fan test i think it resets over heating warnings because some of the broken consols i buy and fix have the same thing and when i do the fan test it boots right up

to do this

turn the power switch to the "off" possition on the back of the ps3 then hold your finger on the eject button and while still holding the eject button flip the switch on the back "on"

sometimes you need to leave the system powered off by the switch for about 1 min before you do this to get it to work.

I cant get my PS3 to work


Is your warranty purchased from Sony itself or from the place of purchase i.e. Walmart extended warranty? Return it to the place of purchase. They should have your PS3 serial number and can look it up. Once they verify you have the extended warranty, they should take care of it.

If you purchased direct from Sony, try this link:

Playstation.com Knowledge Center concerning returns


Contact Official Playstation

Addressing the actual probelm. I am not sure if this would work but turn off the PS3, Once light turns red, touch the power button and keep holding as light turns green then goes back to red. The try restarting the PS3. Thats a video reset. It may work, it may not.

Hope this helps

Ps3 restarts itself (when it does work nothing on screen)


sounds like your ps3 has overheated. ask a good electronic repair shop to change the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and the heat sync. let them know the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed.

Tip: Keep your PS3 flat do not store standing on it side this will help prevent the thermal compund from moving as much
