Flashing red light will not eject game


if you turn it on, and it goes green then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red, then your ps3 has overheated and been damaged. you can fix it with the heat gun trick, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

but it will only break again.

try flipping the switch in the back, then hold the eject button while you flip the switch back on, that should eject the disc.

SYSTEM DOES NOT TURN ON. FLASHES, SHUTS OFF, NO EJECT


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have your PS3 serviced by Sony. To eject your game, flip the power switch on the back of the PS3 to off. Then press and hold the eject button and turn the switch back to on again. This should eject the disc. Best of luck with the repair.

My ps3 is flashing green yellow then red


Yellow Light Of Death, quite similar to 360's Red Ring of Death.your PS3 is part of 0.2% that has overheated and now no longer functions! Send it to Sony, they'll replace it.If you can try to
update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option)
go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies
check the disc if it has fingerprints or scratches if it does then thats your problem
if you have the 60GB sos mate they have alot of problems
or maybe try this put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it then switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it then put it back on then the fan test should be working this may cool it down
if this problem still continues go out and buy a inter cooler from a shop

Disc wont eject red mains light flashing


Turn off your PS3 entirely. Then, flip the backswitch and Eject button at the same time. The cooling fans will start to blow at max capacity to blow out all the interior dust. even ejects discs

When I turn on my PS3 the light flashes green 3 times then yellow twice then red. It won't eject the game disk. I've tried holding the eject button for up to 30 seconds without success.


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony. North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

Flashing red light and cannot eject game


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.
