I am having the exact same problem. When I try to power on the green light will come on for about 2 seconds and then the yellow light flashes and it goes to a flashing red light and quits.

Alot of the playstation 3 systems are having problems overheating. this would be the cause of the system shutting off. not to much u can do unless u know how to replace the fan or if you bought the warranty. other then that you would have to take it to get fixed or buy a new one. hope this helps sorry if it dont

My playstation 3 jus shut off the other day while playing it i tried to turn it back on an the light turns green an starts blinking then turns red shuts back off


Yes this is the red light problem you need to use a good guide to fix it or send it in for repair.

It is caused by overheating internally.

Ps3 just cuts out and wont turn on. was playin a game, then it turned off. i tried to turn it back on and the light goes green for 2 seconds, then turns off again bleeping. the red light then flashes...


take it bake to the place you bought, and tell them to send to service, remember to bring your reciept, and the rest is up to them. As you see, this is a hardware breakdown, and should only be fixed by authorized repairmen, if not, the warranty would be void.

You can try accessing the PS3 Recovery Menu and perform some maintenance to try and fix it. Instructions here. If that doesn't work, you should contact Sony Customer Service.
