Has it had a few hours to cool down? if so you may have to contact sony to see if its still under warranty. something may have been damaged inside.

Ps3 will turn on but wont come up on screen it wont turn off or eject disks


If your system:
1. Beeps three times
2. Blinks the Red LED light
3. Flashes a quick Yellow LED before turning Red

Your system might have experienced the "Yellow Light of Death". This is usually a sign that the system has overheated. Try turning off and unplugging your system from the power outlet and leaving it for a couple of hours.

If the system still doesn't turn on/boot up after a couple of hours, you should contact Sony (especially if you are still in warranty).

If your system is no longer in warranty and you know how to tinker with electronics AND given that your system is the old "Fat" version, then you could try fixing the system yourself.

Since the YLoD or "Yellow Light of Death" is a general hardware failure, given that if your problem is with some components of your system (such as the GPU's solder/thermal paste getting dry/broken) it can be fixed through a couple of procedures.

Please proceed to this Forum Thread to see the procedures:

Note that this does not apply on all systems that experienced the YLoD.

When i turn on my ps3, the green light stays on and the tv screen doesn't even change. i changed the cords to make sure the audio/video wasn't just out. i tried to enter 'recovery mode' but it won't even...


If you have a "slim" ps3, it does not beep 3 times. Try this.
First, with the system off,plug in your old red, white, yellow cables into the tv. (make sure your tv is on the correct setting). Now, just turn on the ps3 the regular way. Did you hear the sounds it normally makes when booting up (the ps3 boot music?). If so, thats good. If you did not, check again that the tv is on the right channel, and if possible, try another set of red, white, yellow cables.

If you heard sound, but do not get a picture, turn the ps3 back off. After the red light comes on, hold your finger down on the power button for about 5 seconds. If you have a fat ps3, it will beep 3 times after a few seconds to get back to regular tv mode. If you have a slim ps3, it will beep once, then 1 more time a few seconds later. It should reset and turn back on. If your tv is on the right channel and the cables work, then you should now see a picture and you know your audio/video is working. You can now try your HDMI cable and it should prompt you to use the HDMI at this point.

Hope that helps.
Mike!

When i turn on my PS3 it as it starts up a yellow light comes on


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

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.

Ps3 when i turn it on has a yellow screen and wont load games


Try this:

Turn the console to stand by, you can do this by pressing the power button for 10 seconds.

When it is on stand by (a solid red light shows) hold the power button for 3 beeps, remove your fingers on the third beep which should be a double beep.

This should take you to reset your console. You should see 6 options. Select option 2 then the system will go blank. Repeat the above but this time select option 3.

Your PS3 should work after. Good Luck!

My ps3 wont turn on


Hi There,

Your Processor needs reflowing (re soldering on the board) as the system over heated, it caused stress on the solder joints underneath.

Sony charge £150 and give a month warranty to repair it.

We charge £60.00 and give a 6 month warranty.

This sounds like an over heating issue. Do any fans come on when you first start up the system?
