You'll have to contact Sony for repair. I would highly recommend you NOT trying to fix this problem yourself.

You can reach Sony at 1-800-345-Sony

Or google: rescuetechla for my blog page on some common ways to fix the problem. (most of them won't work for most consoles, but if you want to try, you're more than welcome.)

Flashing red light will not eject game


if you turn it on, and it goes green then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red, then your ps3 has overheated and been damaged. you can fix it with the heat gun trick, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

but it will only break again.

try flipping the switch in the back, then hold the eject button while you flip the switch back on, that should eject the disc.

When you turn the unit on it goes to a green light then beeps twice and goes to a flashing red light?


This is an overheating problem.
Let it sit for about a day and then try it out.

Make sure it has ATLEAST 4 inches of open space all around it and is not near any heat-making devices, it makes enough heat on its own.
Also make sure it's not on carpet.



If it ever starts to immediately shut-off, blink green yellow and then repeating red with 3 beeps, you have the Yellow Light of Death.
This is a console killer.

Repost as a different question if it turns into the YLOD.

My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.

When i turn ps3 on red light turns green then yellow,makes 2 beeping noises goes back to red flashes and wont bbot up anyone know thanks


Yes, what you have here is called the Yellow Light of Death, or (YLOD) for short. On PS3's, getting a YLOD is a 3% chance, while the XBOX360 gets a higher chance for the RROD.

I'm not sure exactly how to fix it myself, but hopefully this will help you.
