SOURCE: ps3 wont turn on, jus beeps 4 times an red light blinks

This could be any of a number of problems try these solutions one of which may work. If they all fail to work you can contact sony directly at
http://www.uk.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
http://www.us.playstation.com/support/PS3

  • 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.

SOURCE: My PS3 wont turn on, when it does a white light starts flashing

ooohhh...


You have the Yellow light of death. The YLOD is the Red Rings of Death, except for the PS32_bing.gif.

I recommend Wiredextreme.com to service your system (if it's out of warranty). About half the price of a Sony2_bing.gif repair and you get YOUR system back, unlike when you send it to Sony2_bing.gif where you get some other random refurbished system. WE has a automatic 90-day warranty, the same as Sony, but WE also gives you the option to extend the warranty up to 4 years. the WE warranty covers the entire system, not just what they fixed on it.

If it is still under warranty, set up a service request with Sony using these instructions:

http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/106/session/L3NpZC9UTFFuUjNWag==

Make sure you erase all of your personal info off of your PS3 and follow the instructions on the page above.

Good luck!

Oh, and if you send your system in to Sony, you will get a different copy of the game that is stuck in your system packaged separately and later than when you will get your system back from Sony.

I'm 90% sure of this. The only thing this doesn't explain is why your console doesn't come on everytime you press the button. Unless the power button is blinking and when you press it, it stops blinking and then you have to press it again to tunr it on.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

Wont turn on has blinking red light wont stayed powered


Hello, I'm sorry to say this but the blinking red light is = the light of Doom. Your PS3 is dead. This is somewhat like the XBOX Red ring of death.Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony and they will send you a new or refurbshed one. Your ps3 is one in a billion (according to 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
