    I was playing Killzone2. I guess its time to go and buy a new PS3, but not before I break open the dead one so I can at least get my Killzone game out of the dead system.

    I was playing Killzone 2 as well when my PS3 died. Damn I've only had my PS3 for 14 months.

Console wont come on red light goes green then yellow flashes then flashes red

its an error. hold down the power button till it beeps once. the hold it again till it beeps twice. The moment it beeps twice take your finger off and instantly hold it down again. your ps3 with give you 5 onscreen options, hit #3 and only number 3. that should fix the problem. You can also youtube "how to fix disk error on ps3" and people will should you how to do these stated steps.

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off

you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

Wont boot fully boot up.

Try reseting your PS3. Turn your PS3 completely off by the switch in the back. Then flip the switch back on. Press on the power button and hold it until the green light comes on, beeps twice then the green light should go out, replaced by a red light. Then turn it on normally.
