SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: when I turn it on, the light turns green but shuts

This is the Yellow Light Of Death, or YLOD. Mine has happened 3 times.
Basically, the solder on the heat sync has cracked. It can be re-flowed i.e. melted again, but it doesn't always work.

you need to change your power box there is a bad connection with the wires. its over heating you might whant to buy another at game stop or take it in to get fixed. the more you messed with it it might mess up your whole system.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

Menu will not show up


Yes you can!
TRY THIS cmfin and trey!
Shut the system off in the back then un-plug and re-plug all cords.
Turn the power on in the back.
The ps3 should have a red light on in the front.
Push and HOLD the power button in front!
It will go through a red light to green beep at you then go back to red.
This should HARD reset it.
If you have ever changed tvs or played on a different tv the ps3 will sync itself to that tv.
SO a regular tv is different then my hdtv so it would need to be reset to play on a different tv!
I hope it helps!

Wont show up on TV


You have to reset the console by holding down the power button on the console itself until the light changes from red to green and back to red again, after that make sure you have the composite cables ( red white and yellow ) plugged into their correct slots . Then check to make sure the tv is on the video channel. And lastly , this is the part that got me, make sure the cable that plugs into the back of the ps3 is in there securely, it shouldnt be loose or anything. Thats what fixed it for me.
