Getting the red light like that usually means the ps3 over heated and is have a heating problem or a hard ware failure if its getting to hot make sure that the vents aren't smothered by carpet clothes or any other things that block the vent and don't put in tight places if you keep getting the red light then somthing else is wrong

Turn the PS3 power off via the switch on the back.

Hold the power button on the front of the machine down for about 15-30 seconds.
Then, without letting go of the power button on the front of the machine, turn the switch on in the back.

If it still doesnt come on then you may have serious problem with PS3 in which contact Sony or the retailer you bought it from for exchange or rapair.

Good luck!

When i turn my ps3 on it turns green then it turns a yellowish-red color then blinks red what do i do?


Yes this sounds like the YLOD - caused when the GPU and the CPU overheat - you can send it in to fix but they will charge you for this. Or you can fix it yourself from home with a good repair guide.

The playstation 3 shut off in the middle of play. Now the little red light just keeps blinking. We unplugged it made sure theere was nothing blocking it to cause it to over heat, we plugged it back in and...


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes


do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony

Was playing a ps2 game when the PS3 suddenly shut off. When I try to turn it back on by the back, the light turns red. As soon as i press the power button it beeps once, I hear a whir, then it powers off....


does the light blink red?
if so you have the TERRIBLE BLINKING LIGHT OFF DEATH
you have a few options:
1.call sony, send in your ps3, recieve a refurbished ps3 for $150
2.find a local to fix it for much cheaper
3.buy a new console

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

My ps3 wont power up


try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .

PS3 wont work


How long were you playing it? if you were playing for a couple of hours, then it could of just overheated, in which case the ps3 will shut itself off suddenly to keep from damaging something. It should work after about half an hour, adequate time for it to cool down, if not, then you might of damaged something.
