    Bear, how old is your system?  What date does it say on the back?  Mine does the same thing, mine was built in Dec. 2006.

When in turn on the playstation 3,red light is on and of i try to touch the sensor to make the red light into green but within a few seconds green light turns into orange and becoming red and the red light...


This is a common occuring problem what has happend is you have the ylod better known as the yellow light of death. This means the solder on the motherboard has come loose and won't supply the needed power to keep the system running so you need to either send it in for repair which is $110. It's gone for two weeks then back just as good as new

I bought my son the playstation 3 last year for christmas, hadn't had any problems until now... When he went to turn it on the light turned green for like one second and then it started blinking...


if you have had it within the year call sony playstation and tell them the problem and they will give you a reconditiond one within a couple of days, dont worry they are as good as new, it sounds like it is the YLOD yellow light of death, common with most consoles over 2-3 years old. call 0844 736 0595. they will be very helpfull.

Red light is blinking i can power on but green light goes to yellow then back to red within a few seconds


you have something that is called the Yellow Light Of Death or YLOD, this means that the main processors might be over heating, you can easily solve this problem by doing a search for YLOD on google or you tube!

you got the yellow light of death, you would need to reflux solder on the processors and reheat the solder, here is a link for the repair, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIm0Qk0CVTE&feature=related I suggest you take it to a pro if you feel you can not do it, you can mess up your ps3 if you don't do it right and taking it apart is a delicate job.

Ps3 not turning on


The only thing i can think of is click the switch to turn off the PS3 completely leave it off for about 30 second turn the switch back on and try again. If the doesn't work you may have a problem with your power supply and might need to get your PS3 serviced
