My ps3 turns off a couple of seconds after it is turned on then the red power light blinks


If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. The console beeps like normal, then the light quickly turns from red to yellow then immediately back to a blinking red. What does this mean?


If ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......

check your console and making sure those fans are not blocked off. If you notice a lot of dust on the console, clean it off right away. Once you fix the blinking red light of your ps3 and your console is working again, you will want to keep the vents clean and unobstructed.find the hard drive on the side of your console and remove it. Wait a few seconds and replace it. In some cases this may fix PS3 red light. If you still see the blinking red light, there is a chance you have more substantial damage inside your unit.Then unplug the console from the wall for about half an hour and then plug it back in. This doesn't always work, but some people have had success with problems other than overheating.

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 cuts off while playing gta4. the red light starts blinking. what wrong?


This is an overheating problem.
Let it sit for about a day and then try it out.

Make sure it has ATLEAST 4 inches of open space all around it and is not near any heat-making devices, it makes enough heat on its own.
Also make sure it's not on carpet.



If it ever starts to immediately shut-off, blink green yellow and then repeating red with 3 beeps, you have the Yellow Light of Death.
This is a console killer.

Repost as a different question if it turns into the YLOD.

When you turn the unit on it goes to a green light then beeps twice and goes to a flashing red light?

Playstation 3 turns on than turns off with flashing red light


If it turns off randomly and blinks red and beeps, then it's an overheating problem.

If it turns off as soon as you turn it on and blinks red and beeps, then it's an overheating problem that is getting close to being a YloD.

If there is a yellow light mixed in with #2, then you have the Yellow Light of Death which kills your console. If this happens, repost on here saying you have the YLoD.


If the problem is #1 or 2, then leave the Ps3 off for a day and move it away from carpet and anything that makes heat. Also make sure it is atleast 4 inches away from EVERYTHING.
