Re: i cant start up my console
Your system has overheated. The thermal compound has heated and moved
away from the CPU/GPU and the heat sync keep the heat from being
dissipated via the heat sync. Eventually you will get the YLOD which is
the equivalent of the Xbox 360 RROD. This is due to heat sysnc
problems. Your CPU and GPU will more than likely need to be reflowed. I
got the YLOD on my PS3 around the first of March 09. I also fixed my
PS3 in about an hour. I have had no problems since. You can slow the
YLOD but i dont believe it can be stopped. It seems it will eventually
happen to all PS3's. One tip do not stand the PS3 on its side keep
flat. This will help keep the thermal compound from moving as much when
it heats up. Also i run a home based computer repair business in
southern California. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Follow the procedure below to fix the problem on your ps3,
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 prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS
button 6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
The current Recovery
Menu supports: • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System. •
Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. •
Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. •
Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3. • Restore
PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. •
System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front
of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it
starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video
settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme
settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.
1. Plug in controller
2. Have system in standby mode (red light)
3. Hold down power button for a full cycle (will turn on and back off again)
4. Hold power button again will hear 2 single beeps then a double beep.
5. As soon as you hear the double beep immediately remove your finger from the power button.
6. Hit the PS button on controller when it tells you to
7. Go to ONLY option 3 (restore)
8. WARNING: select any other option and you can wipe out everything ONLY USE OPTION 3
9. Follow on screen prompts
Try this and get back with me, I will look into it for you.
Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.
