My ps3 is automatic turn off when i turn on


It is basically a failure at the hardware level and is known to have a huge impact.


Some of the theories doing the rounds on what causes this specific error include power supply issues, lack of cooling or heat dissipation leading to over heating or drive errors. Lack of heat dissipation results in a hardware failure on the motherboard.


Improper power supply is another primary reason for the occurrence of YLOD. The general theory is that the console beeps whilst throwing the yellow light and then the console gives out a red light with the primary reason being over heat.


The probable reasons for this could be due to the various temperatures the system would experience whilst playing games and improper vents to provide the requisite cooling. Under such circumstances, it is recommended to leave the system unused until the heat is dissipated and the system cools down completely before turning it on.


Once you face the error, you have a few options to choose from:


• Buy a new PS3

• Get your PS3 repaired by Sony

• Get your Ps3 Repairs by someone else


There are a few temporary things you can do, but the over all will not last very long unless you open up your system... Your system needs to be cleaned.

After click on the game title. screen goes black


It is normal for the screen to go black for a couple of seconds once you click on the game title.
Although, for some games, the screen goes black for a longer period of time than other games. Another important factor that determines for how long the screen goes black is the health of your disc.
First of all, it is advised that you exercise patience and wait for a couple of minutes before trying anything. During this period of time, the game is trying to load all the necessary files required to run the game.
On the other hand, if the disc you are trying to play is not very clear or has scratches on its surface, this could make the game go on a black screen for longer than normal. So to prevent this from happening, make sure that the surface of our disc is very clean and is free from dust or scratches.
If you wait for about 5 minutes and it still doesn't work, then you can try ejecting the disc to see if it automatically quits the game and returns to the home screen. If it does, this means that the disc is probably bad and you are advised not to try loading it anymore as it could cause damage to your console.
Although you can try resetting the console if it still behaves this way before you confirm that the disc is bad. Below is the instruction oh how to do this.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using Fixya.

My ps3 has ylod and i cant get my game out is there any way i can open it.


Assuming it is one of the older style ps3's you can usually get it out without opening up the machine:

1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.

2. Hold down the eject disc button.

3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.

4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.

Playing any PS3 game and screen goes blank. red light on console blinks.


Common reason is your PS3 has overheated. Turn off system after removing game disc and let system cool. Clear any dust or debris from the vents and if possible, relocate PS3 to more open area.

While playing a game console turned off and game disc is stucked inside, turn power on and light turns green for couple seconds then flashes red and turns back off, no chance to eject game disc.


Hello,
When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
Provide a proper vent for the system...
Hope this will help...
