PLAYSTATION 3 blinks green and wont shut down

Turn it on...i can see the screen. it shows all the options (friends, game, video, etc) but it does NOT show the drag down details under it, nor will it read a game. and if you click anything in the network settings, it freezes.

it still reads my controller, which is odd. but when i shut the system down, it just blinks green. constant. and will not shut off.

im getting pissed off.

help?

SOURCE: playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.

I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.

SOURCE: PS3 freezes...shows colored "specs" on screen.

This is a common problem with the PS3. sadly you cant do anything for it. The only think you can really do is to get your PS3 replaced cause sadly your PS3 has suffered dome physical damage for sure.

SOURCE: ps3 wont read any game/dvd

How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.

A few days ago my Playstation began freezing midgame while playing NBA 2k11. Now when I turn it on, all of the icons such as game, network, playstation network, friends, music, etc are on the home screen...


Hi mttwlsn16,

If you noticed that system recently freezes up, it migth be overheating or full of dust. There are several ways on how to check the issue, either you clean the system or place it in a cool area. Here are some ways to troubleshoot the problem.

1. Turn off the system completely then disconnect it from the power outlet. Press and hold down the power button for 15-20 seconds. Try to restart the system now. If still has the same problem proceed to step 2.

2 .Try to Unplug and replug all the cables.

3 .Take out the hard-drive, and put it back in after your console has been started up.

4. Make sure that you have at least 60% of the hard drive space free.

5. Clean your game discs with a micro-fiber cloth.

6. Clean the ps3 from dust. You can Use a micro-fiber cloth and use vacuum accessories to clean the dust from the grills and fans.

Alternative solution to remove the dust:
--> turn off the system by switching it off from the back. Please make sure that there's no inserted disc on the system.
--> Now hold the eject button and while holding it try to switch it back on. Fan will run for about 20-30 seconds and it will clean up the dust.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps. Also be sure to rate whether this helped or not.
