Does it blink red or yellow lights? That's a sign of hardware failure and the system needs to be serviced.

SOURCE: My playstation 3 turns on for about 10 seconds and

This is known as the "Yellow Light of Death" for the PlayStation 3 (ironic, I know, because it blinks the red light). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to actually melt and bridge or connect. Once this happens it causes a short in the board giving you the error you have now. Contact Sony to see if your unit is still under warranty.

If your unit is not under warranty, then go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a video game console repair company and we can get you back up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email us at support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free at 888-389-3038.

SOURCE: My ps3 turned off during game play and the light

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

First thing to try is a video reset.

While the PS3 if off (red light solid) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, quickly release.

Let me know if this works, otherwise we'll try step 2.

Try resetting the video output. Follow the steps below:


  1. Before changing cables, make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned off using the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 (the 0 side is pressed down).

  2. Unplug the power cord of the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) from the wall socket.

  3. Make sure the AVI cable is connected to the [AVI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

  4. Connect the other end of the AVI cable into the [AVI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.

  5. Plug the PLAYSTATION 3 and television (or display) back in to the wall socket.

  6. Turn the main power switch on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 back on (the line on the power button is now pressed).

  7. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.

  8. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

Thank you for using fixya!

My console starts to turn on ,then shuts down!!!


try reseting your video settings by holding the on;off button for about 5 seconds when turning on . if this doesn't work, must be a problem with your hardware. then you should take the system to a support centre.

about the disk, have u tried to turn the system on by pushing directly the eject button ?

Playstation 3 will not work - powers itself down


Hardware Failure. You can try using some of idea from this guide:

http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&thread.id=3290911

MAJORITY of the time it's a GPU problem though that only Sony or very experienced techs can fix.

No video coming from the HDMI SLOT/


Try shutting the system down.. turn it on then wait for the red light to appear. Push and hold the power button down and wait until it beeps... it will reset itself and turn back on and should be fixed... THIS may take a few times.
Keep me updated with your progress!
