    I just had a similar problem with my PS3 (60gb). I come in the room the other day and turn it on after it being OFF all night, it turns on for like 2 min and shuts off out of nowhere, (NO blinking red or yellow lights) so I flip off the power switch and let is sit for 5 min. I turn it back on and then it shut off again, only this time it came on for less than 2 sec. It did this 3 times and since the 4th time it does nothing at all, no red light no anything, it is completely dead!!! I think it is the power supply but Im not sure.

    i was in the middle of playing cod4 and then it suddenly died. when i tried to turn it on it went green and turned on for a few seconds and then the green light went yellow for a second and beeped 3 times and then the red light started flashing. after that when i touched the on button, the red flashing light went normal and then when i turned it on, the same thing happened again. any chance of a problem with the hard drive

I went to turn on my ps3 the power light turned green then yellow, and then just flashes red? it never starts up?


send it back to sony.... its called the YLOD.(yellow light of death) same as the RROD (red ring of death) for the xbox 360. if its not under warranty then you could open it up and fix it yourself. look here.

Yes this is the YLOD (Yellow light of death) to fix it you need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips in the motherboard to do this you should use the recommended PS3 Repair guide.

hi..Seems like your Power Supply went dead or either a faulty button.. Since those are touch pads those sometimes wear out. Another issue could be due to overheating..
