Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 shuts itself off in a sec and doesn't eject game.

When we press the start button it turns green for on for 1 sec. only and than it blinks red and does not eject the game. It started when my son was playing the game when all of a sudden it turned itself off and never started again. We tried to shut off the button in the back and turning back on but still did not help.

When I turn on my ps3 model cechg01, it blinks the green light a couple times then shuts itself off. No other color lights just the green one, then beeps three times and shuts off.. Can anybody help narrow...


When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

The game cd cannot be ejected from the PS3. When the eject button is pressed the red light keeps blinking.


Try the following solution.

Turn the PS3 off with the main switch on the back.
Turn the PS3 back on into standby (red light on)
While holding the eject button press the power button on the front of the PS3. This should initialize a forced disc eject.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Console will not stay on light blinks green to red and shuts off and there isa game inside we can not get out HELP


IS the red death light... meaning that possibly your ps3 is overheated. Try the following: leave it off for about an hour in a cool place, try to turn it on again... if this doesn't work, press the ejection button an the power one at the same time for 10 sec. That should do it

Disc stuck and then Ps3 system when turned on goes from green to yellow then blinking red


PS3 has overheated and the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync need to be replaced. the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed as well. Had the same problem and fixed mine. The thermal compound was pretty much gone when i opened up the system. Also dont keep your ps3 on its side leave it flat this will help keep the compound from moving as much.

PS3 won't turn on


hi Torgsrus.
PS3 Light sequence
The following pictures illustrate the CECHX0X model, however the light sequence is applicable to all PlayStation 3 models.

No lights are on:

When no lights are on, this means that the main power switch on the back of the ps3 is off or the PS3 is unplugged. When the main power switch is off (the '0' is pressed) and you will not be able to access any features of the PS3 system. To turn on the PS3 system, make sure the main power switch is on (the 'I' side is pressed down).

If the PS3 does not turn on:
· Make sure the power cord is not frayed or damaged
· Try using another power cord, if available
· Make sure the main power switch on the back of the PS3 system is turned on
· If you continue to have issues contact our Technical support.

Solid Red:


When the power status light is solid red, this means that the PS3 system is off (or in standby mode).
Standby, mode means the PlayStation 3 system is off, but is ready to be turned on by pressing the power button.

If the ps3 system will not turn on when you press the power button, this is an issue with the PS3 system and you will need to send your system in for service.

Solid Green:

When the power status light is solid green, this means that the PS3 is turned on.
You should be able to navigate the XMB, play games, access the Playstation store,etc.
To turn of the PS3, simply press and hold the power button for two or more seconds.
If the power status light is green ,and you are experiencing problems- have a look on our forums for troubleshooting.

Flashing Red:


When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly overheated.

This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
If this happens:
· Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.
· If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like an entertainment area, move it to a more open area.
· Leave the ps3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.
· If you continue to have issue, you may need to send the console in for service.

Flashing Green:


When the power status light flashed green, it means that the PS3 system is turning off. Please wait while the system turns off.

If the PS3 system does not shut down immediately, it may be trying to finish save data to the Hard Drive. If it is, do not turn the main power switch on the back off as it may cause data on your hard drive to be corrupted.

If the green light continues to flash green, the ps3 system maybe trying to write to the hard drive, shutting down or running programs. It may take longer to shut down depending on when you pressed the power button. If the green power light flashed for a very long time, you can try holding the power button down for 5 seconds, the console will beep and should turn off. Then try to restart the PS3 system.
Flashing Green, Yellow and Red:


When the power status light goes from green, to yellow, to green, then to a flashing red, this means that they may be an issue with an internal part with in the PS3 system. This may be caused by a variety of reasons and would need to be diagnosed by our support line.

When the PS3 power light flashes in this order, you can contact our Support Line for further assistance.

Solid Blue:

When the disk status light is remaining a solid blue, it means the disc is inside the PS3 system. If you wish to eject the disc, hold down the eject button for 2 seconds and the blue disc status light will flash indicating the PS3 system is attempting to eject the disc . (NB: the power indicator light will always be a solid green).

If the disc is inserted into the ps3 system, but does not show up on the xmb or will not play, this may indicate an issue with the reader- check our guide Discs are not loading in my PlayStation 3? for further troubleshooting.

Flashing Blue:


When the disc status light is flashing blue, it means a disc was just inserted into the ps3 system or a disc is trying to eject from the ps3 system. Depending on when you pressed the eject button, it may take longer for the disc to eject. (NB: the power light will always be a solid green)
If the light constantly flashes blue, it may be an issue with the disk being stuck in the system. If this happens there is no way to remove the disc yourself if you are using an orginal 60GB PlayStation.
