You have the yellow light of death its caused by a hardware malfunction usually the gpu or cpu stuffing up its tricky to fix if you dnt know much bout electronics but it is covered by warranty so if you still have the warranty send it back for a new one

Why does my ps3 turn off & wont stay on?


It sounds like you have the beginning of the YLOD or yellow light of death. It's actually an overheating issue.

YLOD (yellow light of death) Replace your power supply inside the unit. Can pay Sony $150.00 USD or spend $40.00 USD on E-Bay. Very easy to install. Google PS3 YLOD Repair for indepth instructions.

THIS CAN BE SOLVED IF YOUR PS3 IS OUT OF WARRANTY
The yellow flashing dot of death does normally mean that your PS3 is Dead but there is a way to fix it

My PS3 would not start and the indication light just flashed between yellow and red
Your options are: New PS3 £250, PS3 from Sony second hand £150 or £5 fix
1. Undo the screw below the warranty sticker in bottom of PS3
2. Slide the lid of
3. Remove all bolts
4. Remove all main components until the mother board is free from the unit
5. Remove the thermal gel on the back of the 2 main chips to the heat sinks
6. Clean any excess dust by blowing away do not use and dusters or leky equipment
7. Level up the m board and heat over all the board with a heat gun, needs to be really hot to melt the solder but not damage the board or components
8. Allow to cool and turn over repeat the above
9. Buy some thermal gel online and replace the gel removed of the chips using a credit card
10. Once cool after 15 to 20 mins replace all the components and PS3 Lid
11. Run a fan test on your ps3 (turn of at the back hold down the eject disk button and turn back on keeping the eject disc button held down until fan starts)
12. Turn you ps3 on and bam your back on COD or FIFA (add wadhapa)
Hope this is of some help but this is only recommended if your PS3 is out of warranty and you are not sending it back for a Second hand Sony one

How to fix blinking red light on my ps3?


You should open up the PS3 and use compressed air to dust it off. Take a look at the thermal paste to make sure it isn't dried up! PS3 Flashing Red Light The Ultimate Solution
