    I was in the middle of an online cod5 game when my ps3 just shut down completely. It has power but it will not turn on. On the ps3 itself the light flashes red until i press it, then it stops flashing. I then press it again and it powers up for a second (green light comes on) then it dies again (back to flashing red light) HELP

I don't think the outlet you are plugging it into has enough power to support the ps3. Try plugging it into a different outlet and see if it works.

I turn on my ps3 and the green light comes on for a short time and the it beeps three times shuts off and the green light turns red and starts to flash. If I push the power button again the red Light


you need to change your power box there is a bad connection with the wires. its over heating you might whant to buy another at game stop or take it in to get fixed. the more you messed with it it might mess up your whole system.

Flashing red light will not eject game


if you turn it on, and it goes green then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red, then your ps3 has overheated and been damaged. you can fix it with the heat gun trick, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

but it will only break again.

try flipping the switch in the back, then hold the eject button while you flip the switch back on, that should eject the disc.

Turned off and won't start. the light turns green then yellow then flash's red


The temperature inside the system is very high. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location OR the vents are not blocked. Touch the power button on the system front to stop flashing and then turn off the system until it cools down After it has cooled down, turn on the system again.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Power switch light is on but no other poweris getting through, changed the power supply but same problem. light comes on power button but power supply fan doesn't even come on.


No beeps are heard, no CPU fan is turning on, only blinking yellow light. This brand usually experiences this problem.
  1. First, check the power supply. Disconnect connectors from the board and make a jumper wire for the green wire to any black wire. If the PS fan does not spin then it's busted, else proceed below.
  2. Reconnect connectors except the one with 4 wires, 2 yellow and 2 black, then switch on. If CPU fan turns on then you have a bad processor.
  3. If the fan is still not turning on then check the USB port pins for short circuit.. disconnect it from the board and switch on.
  4. Do the same with other hardware connected to the board.
PS: The metallic casing of computers must be connected to the common ground of the power utility to protect it from stray currents that result to damage of sensitive components such as processors, memory and hard disks.
