Sounds like you might have blown a capacitor or other hardware issue. Call sony or take it back to the store you bought it at,.

My playstation 3 : everytime i turn it on it goes green then back to red and wont turn on? When it was working it just froze so i turned it off and since then it hasnt turned back on


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning .

I think my ps3 is broken because when i turn it on the light turns green for about 3 seconds then it blinks red, and i cant even eject the disc, can you please help me?


look even closer and it should be a quick yellow flash between the green and red lights its known as the yellow light of death and there is very little you yourself unless familiar with the internal workings of the ps3 with any luck you will not of had a disc left inside hope this helps and good luck :)

I cant get my PS3 to work


Is your warranty purchased from Sony itself or from the place of purchase i.e. Walmart extended warranty? Return it to the place of purchase. They should have your PS3 serial number and can look it up. Once they verify you have the extended warranty, they should take care of it.

If you purchased direct from Sony, try this link:

Contact Official Playstation

Addressing the actual probelm. I am not sure if this would work but turn off the PS3, Once light turns red, touch the power button and keep holding as light turns green then goes back to red. The try restarting the PS3. Thats a video reset. It may work, it may not.
