Guys i've already done the reballing thing on my ps3 but everytime that i want to turn on my ps3 always come the yellow light.. then the ps3 turn off again... but if i repeat this turn on/off thing...


What it sounds like to me is that you ether have something wrong with the Power Supply or the mainboard its self.

If you are not sure which power supply to get let me know the model of your PS3 so I can tell you the right power supply to get.

Power went off suddenly and now my light is blinking red what happened?

Make sure the PS3 is turned off. Take out the hard drive from the PS3 and then put it back in. Now turn the system on and see if that takes care of the problem.

If that doesn't work then turn off the PS3. Hold down the power button in the front and turn on the PS3 in the back, it will make a beeping sound, once it does that then let go of the power button on the front and see if you get video, this will reset the PS3 to factory defaults.

If this doesn't work then that means either the power supply is bad or the motherboard is bad.

PS3 turns on but nothing comes up on the screen/no sound.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red solid light) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release the power button.

Let me know what happens.

PS3 has no power

sounds like your power supply stopped working. send it back if its under warrnty and if not ,order the part on the internet and replace it yourself, you`ll find loads of guids on utube and its fairly easy.

Ps3 wont power all the way up

if you have moved your ps3 to a different tv or something, the video setting can get messed up, thus having to reset the video settings. here are a few steps to do so.

1. put your finger on the reset button and wait until the ps3 is in standby. (Keep holding your finger on it, don't let go)

2. turn off the ps3 completely by switching off the power switch (make sure your still holding your finger on the reset button)

3. turn your ps3 back on (while still holding the reset button) and you will hear a beep. keep holding the reset button until you hear a second beep. let go of the reset button as soon as you hear the second beep

this should reset the video of your ps3. ive done this to my ps3 before because when i was installing linux i almost screwed up my ps3. when i turned on my ps3 no picture or sound would appear. so i called sony and this is what they told me to do and it worked.
