PS3 Won't boot

When I push the power button to boot my PS3, it turns on and the fan starts to spin as normal. however, in 2-3 seconds, the machine shuts down and the green ON light turns to flashing yellow. Another press of the power button returns the light to red - and I can start the process over again.I have tried removing the hard drive to boot the system and the same problem occurs, so I would assume the problems is not the hard drive.Any help you can offer is appreciated :)

Red light blinks and wont stay on when push power button


You can do this fan test.

Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it and you should hear a beep.

The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.

After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and the red light will blink. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.

Tell me how this goes!!

When i plugged power cable to my pc cpu fan start without press power button


It should start for a few seconds, the fans should spin and then stop. You should be able to power it up as per normal. If that is no the case then you are having hardware issues which could be the Power supply

My ps3 turns on and shows the wavy background for the home menu screen but no menu icons show up. Nothing on the controller changes anything and icons never come up. The wavy colored background is there...


This problem is because your PS3 software has become corrupt. The following steps will cure the problem but you will lose saved games and all other data. Your trophies will not be affected as these are stored by the Playstation Network.
Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later then beep once more 5 seconds later and then turn back to standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button as soon as you hear these two beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and it will boot into the recovery menu.
Step 5. Choose option 5 (Restore PS3 system). This will re-install the PS3 software and restart the console.
Step 6. When the PS3 restarts you will be asked to enter the time and date and other information. When the setup is complete your PS3 will boot into the home menu normally.

Hope this helps
