That's a bit hard to diagnose, can you give me some more details?

Does it feel hot, when did the problem start, what model, etc. etc.

In the meantime check out my guide here:

Turns on PS3 you can hear the loading music at start up but there is no video being displayed, tried replacing av cable with a new one same thing happens with new cables, my guess is its the console its...


follow these simple steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

Hi guys, I got this problem this monrning with my ps3 (60GB), I turn it on and after a couple of seconds it turns off, it also shows a red blinking light when off, then green blinks when turn on and last...


The dreaded YLoD, I'm sorry man.

here ya go:



You have the Yellow light of death. The YLOD is the Red Rings of Death, except for the PS32_bing.gif.

I recommend Wiredextreme.com to service your system (if it's out of warranty). About half the price of a Sony2_bing.gif repair and you get YOUR system back, unlike when you send it to Sony2_bing.gif where you get some other random refurbished system.
WE has an automatic 90-day warranty, the same as Sony, but WE also gives you the option to extend the warranty up to 4 years.
The WE warranty also covers the entire system, not just what they fixed on it.

If it is still under original warranty, set up a service request with Sony using these instructions:

http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/106/session/L3NpZC9UTFFuUjNWag==

Make sure you erase all of your personal info off of your PS3 and follow the instructions on the page above.

Good luck!

Oh, and if you send your system in to Sony, you will get a different copy of the game that is stuck in your system packaged separately and later than when you will get your system back from Sony.

My PS3 turns on and then turns off 3 seconds later. my PS3 will not stay on for longer than 3 seconds.


I need to know what the lights on the front do. Do they flash? Before it shuts off do you see a yellow light? Green light?

Playstation 3 (60gig) , I turn it on and the light turns yellow and turns it's self off


Hi there, what you are referring to is called the Yellow Light of Death (YLOD).This indicates a general hardware failure normally due to overheating. When these PS3's were produced Sony decided to use lead free solder. The problem with lead free solder is that it is not as flexible as leaded solder but it is cheaper and more environmentally friendly. When the console gets hot and cools down hairline cracks appear within these solder joints and a good electrical contact cannot be made. This then causes the console to fail. It could be on a number of different components including the CPU, GPU or memory. There is a temporary cure that may or may not work but ultimately the console will need to be repaired professionally or replaced. As it is out of warranty Sony will not replace it but will offer a refurbished unit for around £130. If you look on Youtube for Yellow light of death fix there is a way that you can re-heat the solder joints using a heat gun but if you are not confident taking apart electrical items then this really may not be something you want to try.

I am sorry I cant give you any better news but unfortunately it is a very common problem with the PS3.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Wont turn on


Try cleaning it out using a can of compressed air. Too much dust inside will cause instant overheating. If it still doesn't go back on, your on/off switch is faulty.
