    if it does then either the power supply is shot or the main board heated up and some solder came undone.

With the power light on my playstation3 ,when you switch it on,the red light goes out and it goes to green for about two seconds then immediately switches off again


Does the lights blink red? If so, You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



IT CAN BE FIXED





IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

When I switch it on it goes immediately on standby mode (with the red light flashing) and cannot make it to work


The best solution on earth!!!
the same thing happened to me. all you do is press the eject button until it turns yellow. when that happens, immediately unplug the ac cord, & plug it back in. repeat this process until the light stays green! trust me, it works. it saves alot of money too if your warranty has ran out

Tv and ps3 plugged in and on. av channel shows an empty screen


Follow these steps to resolve your problem:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button until the screen "flickers" and then immediately release. This should reset the video settings.

4. Wait a few seconds, and the Play Station 3 (PS3) logo should appear.

If this does not resolve the problem, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the PS3 so it only shows a red light. You can hold the power button on the front until it goes into standby. To be sure, flick the power switch on the back of the Play Station 3 off and then back on.

2. Make sure your Play Station 3 is connected to your regular TV (not HDTV) with the standard video cables.

3. Press and hold the power button on the front until the Play Station 3 beeps and then turns off again. This should reset the video for you and you can turn it back on after this.

Runs for 20 seconds then standy again


I'm guessing that there is a blinking red light in there somewhere...

If so, it's a overheating problem. Let your PS3 sit for a day and get it away from everything that makes heat, carpet, and atleast 4 inches away from everything in general.

if it escalates to immediately turning off and blinking yellow and then red with 3 beeps, you havbe the Yellow Light of Death. This is a console killer but can be fixed by professionals.


If that happens then remake the question on here saying you have the YLoD.

My ps3 got all wet


Best advice i can give you is turn it off and turn the main power switch off and unplug the machine. Leave it for a few days somewhere with lots of air circulation. Let the curcuits dry and if it still does not work you will have to send it in to sony. Call them and they will send you a box to ship it back to them. Or buy a new one :(
