This is a major system error. As far as I know there is no fix for this and the system needs to be returned to Sony. They will replace or repair your unit for free if it's under a year old. Thank you.

When powereing on my ps3, the power light turns green, then yellow then red and blinks


There are many reasons to cause PS3 power light show green, yellow and red then blinks. It's waste your time and money if you send to somewhere repair - because the same problems will be back after then. The best way is to learn the repair techniques of yourself. There is a PS3 DIY Repair Guide : The author use text and video to show you how to use your hands to open your console and do some maintenance and fixes, at last you are amazing that why you can do that yourself. The best part is you can help your friends too!

PS3 shuts right down to a yellow then a blinking red light


There are some reasons of PS3 goes green to yellow and red light with disc stuck. 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 !

Red light green light yellowlight red blinking light


PS3 has overheated, and caused the solder under the cell processor to get that hot it's melted.

When they've dried / set they have had either cracks appear or they have become warped.

The only solution is to reflow / resolder these joints.

We offer a well priced repair service, and also a longer warranty than most.
