Concole will not work at all green light comes on then turns yellow then red nothing works any suggestions?

Hi. Your Playstation has the Yellow light of Death (YLOD). If under warranty I suggest you send back to SONY no matter how long it takes. Unfortunately this on has a 50% chance of getting repaired by a process known Re-balling. The repair place will heat up your motherboard until the processors inside the PS3 are re-balled or re-aligned. This is similar to the 3 Red Rings of Death From the X-Box. You can catch a video on you tube. Just type in PS3 YLOD or PS3 Yellow Lite of Death. Hope this helps.

My playstation 3 light when I turn it on is yellow... It is pretty dirty I thought maybe that was a serious problem and might of been the issue. Can a ps3 that dirty cause this yellow light??? I opened it...

What you have is called " The Yellow Light Of Death (YLoD)". A process called REFLOW, needs to be carried out. GO to this website and read the information, I followed his instruction and my machine is working fine. Your power cord is similar to the one's found on all regular desktop PC's. You can get them in walmart for about £10. Hope this helps...

The power light comes on and goes back off. It wont turn on

Ok if you have a yellow light at anytime you have yellow light of death and need to reflow the cpu and gpu chips. If you have just red light on and does nothing else you need a new internal power supply.

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.

Ps3 shut off and doesnt have power

send it in for repair is you still have warranty.
If not you can purchase a power supply for about 40 bucks plus shipping and change it yourself (it is pretty easy). This will solve your problem if there is no lights whatsoever (not the green-yellow-red light).
If interested in a working power supply contact me at

PS3 Yellow light

There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.

it's the first simptom of overheating.
Eventually it will fail complete and would not even turn on anymore (goes green-yellow-3 beeps and flashing red). at the point there is nothing you can do anymore.
Send it in for repairs or if you do not have warranty open the console and replace the thermal compound of the main processors. It may help
