It may have simply overheated if so it should boot up again after half an hour or so. If you see a yellow light flashing as you boot up the console, you probably got a YLOD (Yellow Light of Death),. This is a hardware failure, which can be fixed most of the time, just look up YLOD fix tutorials.

How do you hook up a ps3 remote control to play games with the ps3 remote.


    1. Turn off your PS3 console and disconnect it from the power supply.

    2. 2

      Insert the USB cable provided with your console into an open contoller port. The controller ports are found on the left side of the front of the PS3.

    3. 3

      Insert the other end of the USB cable into the back of the wireless remote controller that you want to sync with the PS3.

    4. 4

      Reconnect the power supply to the PS3 and turn it on. The wireless remote control should sync automatically with your console. If it does not begin automatically, press the "PS" button at the center of your controller. This will begin the process. Once the sync is complete, you can disconnect the USB cable and the controller will communicate with your PS3.

I turn on my ps3 it turns off straight away and the red light flashes and its not overheated....????


1 - Turn on TV and set input to port being used.
2 - Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
3 - Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

If that doesn't work then that means either the power supply is bad or the mainboard is bad.
