When i turn it on the light goes green then it goes yellow and off


Are you sure it doesn't turn yellow then blink red?

Yellow light and off: Power supply and board might have been overheated, pulling the gpu and cpu off the main board.

Red blinking light, board is overheated and the gpu and cpu has pulled from the board.

Both are easy fixes for a professional and should cost you no more then 100 for power supply and fix or 50 for the fix. That's what I charge. Anyone who charges more is ripping you off. It is even better if you can try this yourself, but reheating the board yourself is dangerous if is done wrong and can leave you with an incapacitated Playstation.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

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.
