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

The unit will power on briefly, the light will change from red to green, as the drive starts to spin. within a couple of seconds it shuts off and the light flashes yellow with 3 quick beeps, then flashes...


Hi there,
The yellow light you're referring to is the 360's evil cousin, the "Red Ring of Death". The best information I can provide you comes with some handy video tutorials but will require that you open up your PS3. This will also void the warranty so if you aren't sure what you are doing, call SCEA instead. Their number is 1-800-345-7669.

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.

Why is my PS3 having problems turning on? It makes the noise then blinks green for a second then turns yellow and then blinks red completely.


I think you may be referring to the famed yellow light of death people are talking about. It's basically the 360's 3 red lights of death, except it's happening to a good console, instead of a piece of ****.
