I am sorry to say but your PS3 is dead. Do not take it to a repair shop they will steal your bluray laser and tell you the same thing. This is called blinking red lights of death or yellow light of death. There is no fix for this. Sony will replace your unit for $150. It might be $120 now (I don't recall)

My ps3 turns off a couple of seconds after it is turned on then the red power light blinks


If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

Tip

Fix the 80010514 error on your PS3


If your Play Station 3 (PS3) gets the 80010514 error somewhere, you can try this to resolve the problem:

1. Make sure that the power indicator on the Play Station 3 system is solid red. To do this, press and hold the power button until the PS3 beeps and the light blinks. Once the light has turned solid red, turn the power switch in the back off.

2. Turn the switch back on, then press and hold the power button.

3. Keep holding the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.

4. After 10 seconds, you will hear another short beep and the system will shut down (release the button at this point).

5. Press and hold the power button again.

6. Continue holding the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.

7. Release the button when two short beeps are emitted after 7 seconds.

8. As instructed by the on-screen message, plug in the controller and press the PS button

9. Select restore Play Station 3 system.

This should not affect any of your save games, demos, etc. but just to be safe you might want to back up to an external USB hard drive.

To backup saves, go to the Play Station 3 Save Data Utility, select the save you wish to copy and hit the Triangle button. Copy should come up as one of the options. If it does not then the save game is copyright protected and can’t be copied. If you can copy it, make sure you have a USB drive attached and copy it to that.

It says improper shut down then freezes up and turns itself off


First make sure your PS3 is powered off and unplugged.
1. Plug your PS3 in.
2. Now hold you power button on the ps3 down, you will hear one beep, followed by another 5 seconds later, and a third one 5 seconds after that. After that the PS3 power light will turn red. You can now let go of the button.
3. Hold your power button down again, you will hear one beap, followed by another beep 5 seconds later, and then you will hear a double beep 5 seconds after that. After you hear the double beep, let go of the power button.
4. Now some words will come up on the screen saying to connect your controller.
5. You must connect your USB cord to your ps3 and connect the other end to your controller.
6. A selection menu will now appear.
7. Select the option "3. Restore File System" and press X.
8. Now follow the on screen dialog and once the restoration has completed your PS3 will be back to normal.

Please note: Following this guide will leave your Game Data and Save Files intact, you do not need to worry about this process deleting your Save Files or any other data. Your ps3 will be just like it was before it messed up.

On my playstation 3 the green light stays on for about 4 seconds then beeps three times and shuts off any answers


I am not sure why but hopefully this will work... Shut down the PS3 make sure it's shut down... Unplug the main power cord and after a few minutes replugged it and turn it on! I hope it works! I usally have crazy problems like that but as soon I reset it and I forget the problem!

Ps3 shuts down


It's a over heating issue. Make sure it isn't on carpet, in a closed cabinet, or any other enclosed area, also make sure it isn't next to a heating vent. Let it cool down for a few hours, and it should be ok.

Shutting down on 60mg system


try holding the power button on the right
side of the console as you turn the back power switch on.Keep on holding the power button and see if there is a double beep.If this doesn't work,and if you want to try this? Open the HDD cover on the left side of the unit(front facing you).after removing the cover,remove the HDD unit and reconnect.It might be a loose HDD connection.This should only take you 2 mins to do and it won't void your warranty
