or it could be,

Sounds like you have what is known as the yellow light of death (YLOD)

If the unit is still under 12 months old return it to the store for a refund or new machine. If its older than 12 months you can ring sony and talk to them. They can replace it but normally this carries a charge.

Alternatively you can fix it yourself by "reflowing"

There are lots of guides on youtube how to do it. I suggest read up on it, watch lots of different "how to" videos.

THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRENTY

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

Wont stay turned on


i had the exact same prob, if the light goes green for a very short period before going red again it means theres a short on the circuit board. u can try and find the problem but because the circuitry is very small, it wont be easy to find. only other solution is to buy a new circuit board :(
