The power turned of randomly and when i attempt to turn it back on it flahes different colored lights and then turns itself back off


you have what is known as the yellow light of death,2 ways to a quick solution.
1) turn the power off at the back,hold down the power or eject buttom on the front,cant remember what one is is now and then turn power back on at the back,keep it held down and the fan will kick in for about 20 secs.
2) sounds weird this one but it works,wrap the ps3 in towels or blankets but leave the vents exposed,then put a hairdryer to the vents and heat it up for 10/15 mins,mine worked for 4 months after this fix

you got a YLOD yellow light of death when you get a yellow light briefly and then the red lights start blinking, you need to reflux the solder on the processors and apply heat to them, here is a link on how to do the repair, if you are not good at doing these kind of work, I would suggest taking it to a pro.

PS3 Turning off at random(overheating?)


your ps3 could be in the process of breaking i got the ylod just last night your warranty has expired you could just run your ps3 untill it breaks then open it up and try to repair it but thats a tricky thing to do. and dont leave games in it incase it breaks they will be trapped inside, my modern warfare 2 is stuck in mine -.-

PS3 yellow light and then turn red


Have you tried accessing the PS3's recovery mode?
How to Access Playstation Recovery Menu

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold The power button down; The system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be promted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
  • Lastly You could try a full system restore WHICH WILL ERASE ALL YOUR HDD ITEMS so back them up if you wish
  • ****UPDATE***** You could also insert a Blu ray Lens cleaner disc into the disc drive and it will clean the PS3 lens either as a preventitive, or after the fact the drive stopped reading your discs because some people have reported their system reading discs again after this process.
  • You could always lastly take apart your system and try cleaning the lens with cotton swab and alcohol as a last effort scenario especially if your system is already out of warranty

There's now a technician on E-Bay who fixes this damn yellow light of death for out of warranty owners for $75.00 Just seach for Playstation 3 repair service on E-Bay

Ps3 freezes before getting to main menu!!


Try Accessing the Ps3 Recovery Menu
Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear 2 consecutive (quick) beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button
You will be prompted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the ps button
The recovery menu will pop up

Recovery menu
* restart system
* restore default settings
* restore file system
*rebuild database
*restore ps3
*system update
Now I was not sure which one to choose. I clicked restart system and that did NOT work so I clicked restore ps3 and lost everything but it DEFINITELY WORKED!!

Turns off / shuts down by it self


not sure if my last post was posted, but my unit has the same problem. It can randomly shut off after 2, 5 or 10 min. I have read somewhere, that it might be the fan on the back of the unit. still looking for solution....
