My playstation won't turn on!

When i go to turn on the ps3 it shows the green light but then followed by an orange light? then switches itself off again... maybe one in 6 attempts it works but then after around 2 minutes it runs off again. Can anyone help me please?!

    thanks for your help,

    i just found the ps3 manual, and it says something about overheating, and letting it cool down, however it has been turned off for 1 day and still the same.

I know what is the problem the same thing happen to me before you need to open your ps3 and look for a battery that the ps3 have inside. the battery is locate under the motherboard take out and them put it back and this is everything whem you finish try to turn on your ps3.

Orange light means
It tells you the PS3 is either accessing: The HDD or the WiFi.
If the flashing light is by the SD Card Ports [on a 60 gig or 80 gig] it means the PS3 is accessing them.

however if it turns off, this might be another problem.

Send it to sony for repair.

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

My playstation switched of during game play now it wont turn on whrn i hit the on switch it turn green then orange and the console shuts down


if ur ps3 console wont start up....then the things to check are>>> 1.check ur power cable 2.check whether u have inserted the disc properly and precisely. 3.check the insertion of memory card... 4.check the video port.......

If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3... this kind of problem u can fix by using repair guide easily...........

Ps3 will not switch on. The green light turns orange than red


This is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know because it blinks red). This is caused when the unit overheats causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Green light on ps3 but no video show's up


Turn the PS3 on from the console by pressing the power button and holding it until you hear the first beep followed by a second beep. let it go after that. This resets the video to seek an active output on the console itself

No sound on tv or from the actual ps3 unit, no picture.


be sure all cords are plugged in correctly and that the tv itself works if nothing helps and its not any of the cords you may need to get it looked at.
