I was about to remove game from my ps3. The power went off for a few seconds at the same moment I tried to remove it. Now my ps3 will not come on or remove the game. any suggestions.


Unplug everything and let it sit for a few minutes. Then plug it back in.

If it still doesn't work, it is probably just a bad power supply. See if you can borrow a friends power supply and test your ps3 with it. If it turns on then go buy a new power supply.

Just shut off and when trying to turn back on, starts with blue light the a orange one comes on for a second then shuts down!!


hi there s pepe

This is more an amber coloured light and in the gaming world its known as the YLOD the yellow light of death,

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards

I was playing a game and the ps3 just randomly shut off then the red light starts flashing and every time I turn it on it shuts off right away


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...



better u download repair guide....

When it starts it beeps 3 times and then shuts down


It sounds like it might have overheated, first let it cool down for a little while then and try again. If it starts working again, get compressed air and clean out the PS3, and possibly get an external fan to stop so this doesn't happen again. If the PS3 still does the 3 beeps try putting the PS3 in recovery mode by going to the recovery menu. Which can be done by doing the following.
  • Turn off the PS3
  • Hold the power button down; the system should turn on and turn itself off.
  • Once its turned it self back off press the power button intill you hear to beeps
  • After you hear the beeps let go of the power button
  • You will told to plug your controller in and press the PS button
  • Then the recovery menu will pop up
If the PS3 still doesn't turn on it be dead and need to be replaced. Best of luck!

Ps3 shut down in the middle of play and will not turn back on. the power light does appear and when you press the on button it turns green for a moment and then yellow for a moment and the red blinking...


hello,

"When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."
