PS3 Red/Yellow Light

If you are seeing this error it is because the GPU and the CPU have overheated and you will need to stop the heat to fix this. You can send the console in and they will fix it for you but it does take about 4 weeks to fix.

You can quite easily fix this with a few household tiems from home.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Console wont come on red light goes green then yellow flashes then flashes red


its an error. hold down the power button till it beeps once. the hold it again till it beeps twice. The moment it beeps twice take your finger off and instantly hold it down again. your ps3 with give you 5 onscreen options, hit #3 and only number 3. that should fix the problem. You can also youtube "how to fix disk error on ps3" and people will should you how to do these stated steps.

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.

Got a ps3 that when I try to turn it on the light goes green then sharply turns yellow then goes red and starts beeping.


Keeping hitting the on switch really quick. Keep doing it for a while till you hear a couple beeps in a row. It's like jump starting a car all of a sudden it will contact. It is the button on the ps3 that have the problem.
