You have the "yellow light of death". Your system needs to be repaired. There are no work arounds or home remedy you can use that will fix the console. Call Sony customer support.

My ps3 turned off during game play and the light flashed blue green yellow and then kept flashing red and if I wait a long time and try again the fan turns on light god blue for one sec then turn a yellow...


I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

My ps3 system made 3 beeps, then shut itself off but the red standby light is flashing. wen i press the I/O it stops flashing but doesnt turn back on. press it again and it turns on for about 3-4 secs...


Does the red light turn yellow at anytime soon?
If so it's a classical case of YLOD (Yellow Light of Death, you can find it all over the internet).

Best thing you can do is contact your Sony PlayStation support department for your country.
The number should be listed in the manuals that came with the unit.

I hope this works, please rate.

My playstation wont go to the main screen. i turn it on, and it blinks red, and then a yellow, and then back to red. wont even let me eject the game or play anything. what do i do?


Yep this is the famous yellow light of death or the red light of death. It happens because internally the ps3 is overheating, you can fix it yourself by using a good guide or of course you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

It wont turn on just flashed red light and wont give the disk back


watch the lights on the front when you try to turn it on. If the blue light flashes yellow for a second, you have ahardware failure, so-called Yellow Light of Death. You can get the disc out by turning off the switch at the back, then hold down the eject button and turn the back button on again.

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.
