My PS3 flashes green, then yellow, then blinks red. I've changed the power supply and still have the same problem. Can you help?

Sorry Brother you have the yellow light of death. It is a easy fix do it right and you might not have to do it again. Look it up on youtube. I fixed mine and i left the top off so it will not get over heated again. The stuff you need is a little expenceive but it will save you from buying a new ps3. Email me if you have any questions

How well was the rlod repair carried out? To do this repair properly, the equipment needed costs thousands, using infra red heating technology. I doubt many of the pc repair shops that offer to fix the rlod/ylod on early ps3's have this equipment.
Sony offer a refurbished ps3 for around £140, comes with a guarantee.
Hope this helps.

Hi,my ps3 is saying, the hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. the it says press ok. after i press ok, then it says restoring the system, after that it restarts it goes back to the...

here's some ideas:

I fixed my ps3!! All you need is a friend with a ps3!! Swap the hdd's and boot up your friends ps3, format the hdd, put it back in your ps3 and you may need to format it again.

I tried to fix my friend's PS3 HDD that way in still gave an error every time he booted up his PS3. At that point I stuck the PS3 HDD in my laptop, booted from a Windows CD and fully formatted it that way...stuck it back in his machine...used it to format....finally got his stuff going. Took a little extra time but no problems since.

i guess it's a problem with your Hard Disk . please try the following :
  • re-updating your system by an USB device (download the update from sony ps3 website)
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files such as game saves !!)

PS3 freeze

hey guys i fixed this...

its over heatings the CPU and GPU

you need to disassemble it...

then you need to replace the thermal compound with artic silver 5 as the stuff sony has put on is very dry and cracked, i have done this 4 7 of my mates PS3'S and they all work fine.

only do this if its out of warrently, if you removin the sticker on it, it shines through void
