If you have the YLOD (Yellow light of death) then this is down to overheating and you will need to send it in and get it fixed.

Or if you do not want to have to wait you can fix it yourself using a good PS3 Repair Guide

SOURCE: beep 3 times turns green

3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in)...you may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.

SOURCE: PS3 Wont Turn On

Hi my name is Juan and I do fix and sell playstations3's so I do know your problem better than any body here the main problem you have is similar to the xbox360 red ring of dead so for now your ps3 is dead no way to turn it on but we have a fix for this problem the only bad part of this is that is done with a special system that is controlled by computer so not every one can do this like the xbox360 ps3 is more complicated in order to get your system up and running we need to have the motherboard or the completed ps3 to reflow the graphics chip some of the connections under the chip are not making good contact and this problem was cause by excessive heat so your ps3 needs to be open and the motherboard needs reflow and new thermal compound to dissipated the heat better there is some guys on ebay they do this type of job there I only sale parts and ps3's on ebay I don't offer this service on ebay but I do have the system to do it so if you like to see your system running again let me know I am located in Georgia.

Why blinking yellow light and green light infront of cpu


Check if the signal cable for the display is connected and whether there is any kink that may break a wire inside the cable. If the circuit for display inside the computer is broken, most of the time you would hear beeping when turning on the computer.

Playstation 3 turns on than turns off with flashing red light


If it turns off randomly and blinks red and beeps, then it's an overheating problem.

If it turns off as soon as you turn it on and blinks red and beeps, then it's an overheating problem that is getting close to being a YloD.

If there is a yellow light mixed in with #2, then you have the Yellow Light of Death which kills your console. If this happens, repost on here saying you have the YLoD.


If the problem is #1 or 2, then leave the Ps3 off for a day and move it away from carpet and anything that makes heat. Also make sure it is atleast 4 inches away from EVERYTHING.

Certain DVDs cause my PS3 to shut off and blinking red light


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

If you think the **** player is causing the problem remove it and see if it turns on if not you could try another one and see if it works.

Yellow blinking light and no power


You did not specify the brand but I assume it's a Dell and no beeps are heard, no CPU fan is turning on, only blinking yellow light. This brand usually experiences this problem.
  1. First, check the power supply. Disconnect connectors from the board and make a jumper wire for the green wire to any black wire. If the PS fan does not spin then it's busted, else proceed below.
  2. Reconnect connectors except the one with 4 wires, 2 yellow and 2 black, then switch on. If CPU fan turns on then you have a bad processor.
  3. If the fan is still not turning on then check the USB port pins for short circuit.. disconnect it from the board and switch on.
  4. Do the same with other hardware connected to the board.
PS: The metallic casing of computers must be connected to the common ground of the power utility to protect it from stray currents that result to damage of sensitive components such as processors, memory and hard disks.
