The ps3 has a self over heat over ride which turns the ps3 off when getting too hot. if you left it on for long periods of time that might be the problem , if the sensor for the heat is falty that might be the problem or your ps3 might just need cleaning. EG/ to clean just get a vacume and **** all the dust out from the vents on tom and side

PS3 wont reboot when I hold the power button down for 10 seconds. There are no lights going on at all. There are a flash of red lights on the controller for a few seconds and then they turn off also


okay do this again turn your ps3 off.Then you hold power till it turns on then keep holding until it turns off.Then do it again till it beeps 2 times you have to be quick or it wont work.If this dont work you need to send your ps3 in for repair as the power port may bhe faulty or power board.I could fix this if i had the ps3 right on hand i do have the newest ps3 and havent had any problems yet.get back at me with more info on this.if it works or if it dont still get back at me.

I get a black screen when I turn on my PS3. When I turn it on I do get the normal start up sound but the screen is black. The power cord is plugged in, the HDMI cord works (I switched 3 different cords...


Your PS3 may not be in HD mode. When you turn on your PS3 hold down the button until you hear a series of beeps. This will switch the PS3 to work with your HDMI. Now turn off and turn on the PS3 normally and you should have video.

I may be wring on the steps so check your manual or reference:

I turn on my ps3 and all that comes up is a ps3 logo for a few seconds and then the tv screen is all green and nothing works?


Verify the connections between the TV and the PS3. I would also try another cable if you have one on hand.
Turn the PS3 off so the red light is showing then press and hold the power button on the PS3 until you hear the second beep that will reset the video setting on the PS3, that may or may not help.
Try the PS3 on another TV this will verify if it is the PS3 that has the problem or the TV.

When I turn on my PS3 the light flashes green 3 times then yellow twice then red. It won't eject the game disk. I've tried holding the eject button for up to 30 seconds without success.


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony. 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.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721
