Have you tried the system restore menu yet. If you turn ps3 off then hold down power button until you hear 3 quick beeps it should then show a new menu on screen with about 5 or 6 options to select from. Try restore ps3 system and see what it does. Maybe it will help.

My ps3 turns greenlight then goes yellow and keeps flashing red don't want to switch on how do i fix it


This is called the YLOD. It happens by the system overheating and the solder holding the cpu and gpu to the motherboard is loosened. The only way to fix this is to void the warranty and take the system apart and reflow the motherboard or send it back to Sony for $150.00.

Ps3 greenlight,then yellow light then red flashing light. Please help system powered off .on re power up got green light,yellow ,then red flashing


There are many reasons of PS3 turns yellow and red light flashing. But don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself.
Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved the same problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !

Ps3 greenlight,then yellow light then red flashing light. Please help


Hey teahupoo , I have seen many "guides" that claim to fix this. But as far as I have seen, there is no quick fix for this. People refer to this problem as the PS3 version of the red ring of death that plagues the Xbox. Call Sony, they may replace it for free! Hope this helps. Good luck.
