Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

It turns on, but shuts down.

Everytime i turn on the ps3, it shuts down. The light goes green, yellow then red and the red light starts blinking. I let it cool down for some time and cleaned up the dust in the vents, but when I tried to turn it on again it still shuts down. What do I do?

My PS3 just shut off and will not turn on. It starts to turn on but then goes from green light to yellow and then a blinking red light.


The yellow light can mean various things, but the most common are..

- Loose cables or connections.
- Overheating
- Loose Hardrive.

If your PS3 is under warranty then just have it fixed. If not and you're mechanically inclined, you can check the above list. If these do not fix it then you can check the net for YLOD fixes.

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.

When you turn the unit on it goes to a green light then beeps twice and goes to a flashing red light?


This is an overheating problem.
Let it sit for about a day and then try it out.

Make sure it has ATLEAST 4 inches of open space all around it and is not near any heat-making devices, it makes enough heat on its own.
Also make sure it's not on carpet.



If it ever starts to immediately shut-off, blink green yellow and then repeating red with 3 beeps, you have the Yellow Light of Death.
This is a console killer.

Repost as a different question if it turns into the YLOD.

PS3 isn't coming on.


Most likely the disc has gotten jammed in the drive. Your best solution is to find an official Sony repair center if it is still on warranty. If not, find someone who is willing to take it apart and remove the CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.
