Try booting the PS3 with the hard drive removed.

Let me know if this changes anything, most of the time it doesn't, but we gotta start with the basics.

PS3 switched off mid game, red light illuminated, touched on sensor green light illuminated for about 5 seconds then went back to off, red light again.


If the system flashes both the red and green light together, making a sort of yellow color, the system has overheated, and one of the main chips has become defective or detatched. This problem is known as the "Yellow-Light-Of-Death". If the system is still under warranty, contact Sony, and they should replace or repair it for you. If not, they will still repair it, it will just cost more, if the warranty seal is still intact. Hope this helps!

While playing a game console turned off and game disc is stucked inside, turn power on and light turns green for couple seconds then flashes red and turns back off, no chance to eject game disc.


Hello,
When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
Provide a proper vent for the system...
Hope this will help...

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

I was playing a movie and it just shut off


does it power back on with the green light for a couple of seconds then flash a yellowish color then blink red if so read on.
You have the dreadful blinking red light of death. Long story short the system is broken due to overheating and heat damage to the motherboard and you have a few options:

  1. send the system to sony and receive a refurbished system for $150.
  2. find a local to do it for much cheaper
  3. watch vids on the web (youtube.com) and fix it yourself but it is fairly difficult.
  4. buy a new ps3.
I hope I have helped and feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it goes.
