Ps3 stopped suddenly working and red light blinking push the on/off button the light stops blinking and stays fix red push again turns green few second then red blinking again any idea what may have...


Hi Andrea.
What your experiencing is the the well known "PS3 Red/Green Light of death" which generally means a hardware failure or overheating. If it's overheating (2 Red lights) then it will automatically shut down after a while but from what your saying it's not overheating.

If you have it in warranty you have to send it to Microsoft and they will send it back usually 3-4 weeks or take it to a reputable gaming console repair shop (this will cost money).

But first check that your AV cable is properly plugged in (in this case all four RED lights are bleeping). If you're using an HDMI connection forget about this step.

So if you don't have a warranty then it will cost you about $150.
Another thing you can do is follow a guide and repair all of the errors with the PS3 including your problem. Click here for more information.

I turned my ps3 on today and the light turned green, then amber and red and the system beeps three times. the red light then just keeps flashing. When i tap it while its blinking it stops but when i do...


Although you say it can't be overheated, it is possible it is a result of overheating. When you get this error it means a general hardware fault. However, the most common fault found is when either the CPU or GPU processors become so hot that the solder devlopes microscopic cracks that do not close when it cools. This means that there is not a good electrical contact and the PS3 fails. So your PS3 may have been working fine the day before but when you turned it off it would of been hot inside. The circuit board and components would of cooled down essentially making the solder joints contract and open up the cracks in them.

There are guides out there to repair YLOD (yellow light of death) which explain step by step how to fix it. Unfortunately it is not a permanent fix and your console could only last hours after doing it.

Usually you will need a replacement PS3. If it is still under warranty give Sony a call who will replace it free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Yes this is the red light problem you need to use a good guide to fix it or send it in for repair.

It is caused by overheating internally.

My playstation cuts off while playing gta4. the red light starts blinking. what wrong?


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.

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

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

Light turns on, light turns yellow, light turns red and blinks.


Your ps3 has overheated. This is the equivilent to the red ring of death for xbox 360. The ps3 problem is called "yellow light of death" this means your ps3 has died due to the console being overheated. The solution to this problem is either getting a new playstation or take it to a shop in the UK and they could help you fix it for a price around £30-£50 GBP.

Bar light turns from green to yellow to blinking red


this is similar to the red blinking lights on the xbox360...it seems your cell processor has overheated resulting in a cold solder joint or worse bridged solder involving the BGA array...I have had some sucess in fixing these albeit limited. sony charges 150 plus state tax and sends you a refurbished unit.
