My ps3 turned off during a game, when you try and turn it on the light on the power switch goes green for about 3 seconds then switches off again and has a red flashing light


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning.

So in order to fix the blinking red light on your PS3 you will need to repair the connection between the HDD and the motherboard.There is actually a rather simple way that you can do this yourself; while your PS3 console is switched off, locate the hard drive enclosure on the end of your console. Remove the plastic cover plate, then using a screwdriver unscrew the hard drive itself from its socket. Carefully remove it completely, then put it back in again. Tighten the holding screw, then restart your PS3

When i turn on my ps3 at the back the red light comes on and when i turn the system on the green light comes on for about 2 seconds and then the system switches off it does this everytime i try to turn it...


It is the sign that your PS3 is dead by now. You overuse your PS3.

Try this maybe it works, pullout the HDD and reformat it

Then return it back to PS3.

If not, that is the sign of YLOD. mean yellow light of dead. If before this yellow color and then suddenly red. Note : It cannot solve by cooling the PS3.

If problem still exist and still on warranty, return it to sony for repair. G

Controller not working


I had the same problem, so I called customer service and had me do this:

1) with the USB cable plugged into the controller, power down the ps3 and turn the on/off switch in the back to "off".
2) hold your thumb down on the front button (where you normally can turn it on) while turning the switch on the back to "on" again. keep your thumb or finger on the front switch.
3) You will hear the normal "beep" that you usually hear when the PS3 boots up, but after a few seconds later, you will hear a secondary beep. Remove your thumb or finger after this second beep and the PS3 will reset itself after a few seconds. I have a projector connected to it, so I had to set the display screen back to HDMI afterwards, but when I disconnected the USB cable the controller worked wirelessly again. The customer service rep said that this allowed the controller to pair with the PS3 again. Note: You probably do not have to have the controller plugged into the USB cable at all while doing this. I just happened to have it plugged in. Hope this helps.

Wont boot fully boot up.


Try reseting your PS3. Turn your PS3 completely off by the switch in the back. Then flip the switch back on. Press on the power button and hold it until the green light comes on, beeps twice then the green light should go out, replaced by a red light. Then turn it on normally.

I was playing star wars force unleashed yesterday n all of a sudden the ps3 automatically switches off n doesnt turn back on i can see the light but when i press to start up a yellow white colour comes up...


Have you ever heard of "Three Rings of Death"? Well, the yellow light basically means that your PS3 has overheated or suffers from a hardware malfunction. The only thing you could try doing is removing your HDD and then putting it back in and sometimes that will work.

If it doesn't then I'm sorry my friend, you'll have to send it back to Sony. The yellow light is usually a sign of death for the PS3.
