After pressing the on button it turns green for 5 seconds then it flashes yellow/orange for a second then it flashes red.


Yellow Light of DeathThe "Yellow Light of Death" or YLOD is the common phrase people use to describe the following sequence when they try to turn on their PS3:

  • Press Power Button
  • Red Light Flashes Three Times
  • Yellow Light Flashes
  • Green Light Flashes
  • Beeps Three Times
  • Red Light Flashes

The sequence above may vary a bit but you do see the flashing yellow light (sometimes shows up as orange) that normally you would not see when operating your PS3. The YLOD is a general hardware fault that can mean a lot of things. However, one of the problems is cracked solder that leads the PS3 to think one of its internal chips is not connected or is broken somehow. Cracked solder can happen when the chips get too hot (RSX most likely) and leads the motherboard to start bending, which may crack the solder. Changing the power supply (lower the average wattage going to the chips to lower the heat) and better thermal compound (heat dissipates faster to the heatsink) may prevent this error from occurring. However, if your PS3 has already had the YLOD, then you can reflow your motherboard every few months to keep it working (but it is not a permanent fix as the YLOD usually comes back).

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: will not power on, light turns green, flashes oran...


you got the yellow light of death, you would need to reflux solder on the processors2_bing.gif and reheat the solder, here is a link for the repair, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIm0Qk0CVTE&feature=related I suggest you take it to a pro if you feel you can not do it, you can mess up your ps32_bing.gif if you don't do it right and taking it apart is a delicate job.

Ps3 will not switch on. The green light turns orange than red


This is known as the yellow light of death (ironic i know because it blinks red). This is caused when the unit overheats causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Soon as turn PS3 on it goes orange then flashes red.


Its called the Yellow Light of Death. It can be repaired but what you need is an Infra Red BGA reflow of the solder on the PS3 graphics chip.
The best place in the UK to do it is:
