Sorry, but you have the yellow light of death. This is not fixable using ordinary household equipment. Call sony, yellow light normally means catastrophic hardware failure.

My ps3 system made 3 beeps, then shut itself off but the red standby light is flashing. wen i press the I/O it stops flashing but doesnt turn back on. press it again and it turns on for about 3-4 secs...


Does the red light turn yellow at anytime soon?
If so it's a classical case of YLOD (Yellow Light of Death, you can find it all over the internet).

Best thing you can do is contact your Sony PlayStation support department for your country.
The number should be listed in the manuals that came with the unit.

I hope this works, please rate.

My ps3 turn off by itself and than the red led light flashes. And somtime the whole console freezes and i would have to turn it off manually. I have had my ps3 when it first came out so its pretty old dont...


ps3 turning itself off can be a power problem try unplugging and replugging all ps3 power cords and extension cord. as for the freezing it could be many things such as certain games fallout series black ops could also be corrupted save data (often gotten from turning console off while saving) make sure you are not getting a yellow light on your ps3 when it turns itself off (the new yellow light of death for ps3 if this does occur you need to get console fixed)

My ps3 will not stay turned on when i do try to turn it on its light turns to a yellowish color and then starts flashing red like it's off but it stays flashing unless you turn off the switch


The PS3 Yellow Light is the 360's cousin for the Red Ring of Death. My assumption is that you may have unintentionally blocked any sort of cooling the PS3 has. Here are some steps in correcting that yellow light. This information comes from HowtoFixyourPS3.com:

In order to fix your PS3 yellow light error, there are 3 things that you can do.

1 - Restart your Playstation 3.
2 - Check for loose cables.
3 - Unplug all cables, and plug them back in.
4 - Take out your hard-drive, and place it back in your console.

If these 4 tips didn't fix the PS3 yellow light problem, then it's high likely that there's something wrong with your hardware. In order to repair that problem, you can do 2 things. You either send your console over to Sony. Or, you simply fix the problem yourself while using a PS3 repair guide.

When i turn my playstation on, after 5-10 seconds it shuts off by itself and the red light keeps flashing, what do i do?

The PS3 red light problem occurs when your system refuses to boot up and has a small flashing red light on the power button. In most cases, the power button will turn from red to yellow and then back to a blinking red and the system will not boot up from there as it is supposed to.
There can be a variety of issues that cause the Playstation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard
and other functioning components. This can be caused simply by a flaw in the system or by obstructions to the fan vent such as a wall, floor, or excessive collection of dust...
