Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Stand by (red) light comes on but when you power up (Green) light stays green for 3 secs, briefly goes yellow then just flashes red- cant even get disc out! tis 3 years old, but has had lot of use
This is known as the yellow light of death for the ps3. This can be caused by dust buildup in the console, and the console overheating. Once the console overheats, it causes the solder on the board to melt. Once melted it bridges(connect), and shorts out the board causing the error your getting now. If you have had the unit for 3 years the warranty is probably out, but go ahead and contact sony with this site:https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_cAB96F84F-8DB4-2C4E-3368-C3B01BB770F5_k8997F39E-B8B8-B1EF-51B9-162937A6B113
