Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
WHEN I TURN MY PS3 ON THE RED LIGHT COMES ON. THEN IF I TRY TO EJECT THE GAME THATS IN IT THE LIGHT TURNS GREEN, THE FAN STARTS, THEN THE LIGHT TURNS TO RED AND FLASHES. THE FAN TURNS OFF AND THE GAME WILL NOT EJECT. EVEN IF I PUSH ON/OFF BUTTON (NEAR THE EJECT BUTTON) THE LIGHT GOES TO GREEN THE FAN STARTS UP FOR ONLY A FEW SECONDS THEN THE LIGHT TURNS TO RED AND STARTS FLASHING.

hold in ps button on controller, switch off system and restart or quit the game and go to the ps3 main menue, eject it from the menu by going to options on the cd, dont do it manually especially with a ps3 game, it only really works with a dvd.

Hardware problem. Usually the motherboard, sometimes it's the hard drive. You can use a few ideas from this guide:
but more than likely you'll have to send the unit into Sony for repair. You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

That is also known as the yellow light of death because of the momentary flash of amber color. The issue here is overheating, meaning that the processors have become unseated due to unit overheating and motherboard flex in hot conditions. You PS3 will need to have the motherboard "reflowed", which is a heating process that reseats your solder joints on the motherboard. A trained Sony repairman or Sony themselves can repair it, but it will cost ya. I do repairs of this type quite often. If you are savvy enough, and have the correct tools for the job, there are videos on youtube that explain how to repair the PS3. Good luck!
