My ps3 will not stay turned on when i do try to turn it on its light turns to a yellowish color and then starts flashing red like it's off but it stays flashing unless you turn off the switch


The PS3 Yellow Light is the 360's cousin for the Red Ring of Death. My assumption is that you may have unintentionally blocked any sort of cooling the PS3 has. Here are some steps in correcting that yellow light. This information comes from HowtoFixyourPS3.com:

In order to fix your PS3 yellow light error, there are 3 things that you can do.

1 - Restart your Playstation 3.
2 - Check for loose cables.
3 - Unplug all cables, and plug them back in.
4 - Take out your hard-drive, and place it back in your console.

If these 4 tips didn't fix the PS3 yellow light problem, then it's high likely that there's something wrong with your hardware. In order to repair that problem, you can do 2 things. You either send your console over to Sony. Or, you simply fix the problem yourself while using a PS3 repair guide.

Yellow lights


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. 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.

Red light of death


That common problem is the Yellow Light of Death and the Blinking Red Light on the PS3, which can easily be repaired from home (D.I.Y), rather than from Sony. I have also noticed that many others problems have arisen on the PS3, which can also be repaired from your own home! Click here

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.
