This seems to be a very common & recurring problem. It is the "Yellow Light Of Death". For whatever reason, the game cannot read or recognize the hard drive. There are many reasons that you can get YLOD, but it boils down to one thing... you're PS3 is kaput. Here's something you can try that may help: With the solid red light showing, hold both the power button & disc eject button simultaneously! You'll get a single beep, then a double beep. When you hear the double beep, let go. You should get a 6 point menu on your TV. Try option number 3 first. As a last resort, try number 6. This opyion will erase all your saved info, but it is a shot at rescuing your console. If 6 works for you, you can access all your downloaded games & demos at the PlayStation Store. Trophies, too. Hope this helps. If you need a walk-through, message me here & I'll see if a can be of more help to you

    Do you need more help getting to that 6 point menu? If this is the case, this is what you do... Turn the console completely off by the button in the back... Count to 5... Flip it back on. You should have a solid red light in front. Now, you're going to place your fingers on both the power & eject buttons. Please make sure that it is simultaneous. After a count of 2, you should hear a single beep... another 2 count you should hear a double beep. Once the double beep occurs, let go of both buttons. A 6 point menu should come up, or something leading you to the 6 point menu. All choices are viable options, but I think you need either option 3, or option 6. Like I said earlier, option 6 will delete all of your saved items, but it may be the last resort to saving your console. If none of this works, you can contact "PSR" for repair. www.psr1.com or 1-877-777-3491. Again, if I can be of anymore help, please let me know. Hope this helped! Don't forget to rate me! ;)

Have original style 80 gig ps3. was playing other day and ps3 shut down and would not turn back on. Tried turning power off, then back on, the red power light came on then i touched the power on the touch...


Base from the description of your problem, this is a clear sign of a overheating issue on your PS3, you can reset first your PS3 by doing this steps.
You can perform a reset by holding down the Power button for about 10 seconds. The power light should turn red, then you can let go of the button.

But if still same problem after that the PS3 should be taken to a service center for the overheating issue.

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.

Is the projector receiving a source signal? if not it will power itself down after whatever time you have it set to do so when no signal is present.

PS3 will not display on TV


WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.

LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.

My PS3 wont started up


Hey did you try a hard reset?
Shut the system off then turn it on.
You should now have the red light on the ps3.
Hold the power on and it will kick green beep then go back to red.
Then try to push power again.
If not it may be the heat transfer compound in the system which is wearing away causing it to over heat and shut down as a safety percaution.
