SOURCE: PS3 - green Bar when playing blue ray on my 50" Phillips Plasma

When using an HDMI cable I'm getting a greenish tint for the display when playing blue ray discs on my phillips, but the browser and PS3 menu pages display in full color. What's up with that? I have to use the RCA cables to watch the blue ray's. Any ideas out there? We all know the HDMI cable has superior resolution... help!

SOURCE: my ps3 when i go

Hello there sfmsoberspir

If you have the brief flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.

The lights are a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the YLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

Best regards

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

My playstation wont go to the main screen. i turn it on, and it blinks red, and then a yellow, and then back to red. wont even let me eject the game or play anything. what do i do?


Yep this is the famous yellow light of death or the red light of death. It happens because internally the ps3 is overheating, you can fix it yourself by using a good guide or of course you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

The red light on my ps3 is blinking and wont stay on


Turn off the ps3. Try reseating the hard drive. Take the cables off and then hook them back up. After this turn the ps3 back on and see if the blinking red light goes away. If it doesn't then try another hard drive in the system. If the blinking light goes away then you know you have a bad hard drive. If the blinking light does not go away then you know either the power supply or main board is bad.

Playstation 3 at power on, light becomes white then blinks red


Probably and overheating problem. Here's what I suggest:

Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.

You might also consider a System Restore if you can do it before it shuts off.
