My ps3 turns off a couple of seconds after it is turned on then the red power light blinks

If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

Hi. My PS3 suddenly started turning off randomly in the middle of play (grrrrrrr) but I know its not overheating since the red light didn't flash and there was beeping. It just died. No joke. Does anyone...

There could be an issue with the power cord or the power outlet.

Try to get a replacement cord and plug the PS3 into another outlet. Turn on the PS3, and let it sit on the menu screen for a while. If it does not shut down it means that it was a power issue.

My ps3 hangs and then shuts down with a blinking red light. It does this in the hard drive format screen(the one you reach after 2 beeps) as well. So I don't know what the problem is, can anyone help?

It sounds like its a overheating issue or a bad HDD. Make sure that the console is in a well ventilated area and not confined area. Let me know if you have more info so I can help further. We can start a live chat also as I am a premium expert.
