    My PS3 does the same thing, I'm sending it to Sony for repairs that will take at least 2 weeks. I have read that Sony said there PS3 don't over heat, I think they are wrong, I also read with some of the games out there like Call of duty 4 and world at war used a lot of the processor power and that creates a lot of heat. I would have to say that Sony wasn't prepared for the kind of games that coming out these and the PS3 need extra care and cleaning to survive.

PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one spot.playstation will no


Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

My playstation 3 just went off and now it wont come back on, the light goes green but then the red light flashes and it wont turn on


Yes, this is sometimes called the YLOD because of the way it flashed yellow before it goes to the red light.

Well you can fix it yourself using a good guide or you can send it in to be fixed.
