Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Disc stuck There is a disc in the PS3. When the console is turned on, the ;ight goes to green and almost immediately turns to yellow and then back to red, so there is no time to get the disc out. We cannot play the game in the console for the same reason - the machine does not stay on long enough.

My playstation 3 when turned on power light turns green then yellow and immediately turns red...unfortunately i have a game stuck inside console..please help !!!


ou have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



IT CAN BE FIXED*





FOR THE DISC THAT'S STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

Turn on and immediately turns off


sorry, but i guess you have got the famous ''yellow light of death'' =/

this case, you should contact Sony as soon as you can for warranty procedures, because this yellow light means a very serious problem with your hardware, such as :
  • Hard Disk
  • Cooling system .

Disc stuck and then Ps3 system when turned on goes from green to yellow then blinking red


PS3 has overheated and the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync need to be replaced. the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed as well. Had the same problem and fixed mine. The thermal compound was pretty much gone when i opened up the system. Also dont keep your ps3 on its side leave it flat this will help keep the compound from moving as much.
