You have what is called the Yellow Light Of Death. There are one of 2 ways to fix this. Click HERE for the do it yourself fix. (THIS FIX SHOULD ONLY BE DONE BY PROFESSIONALS OR THOSE FAMILIAR WITH ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT. FIXYA, GLIKSY, NOR I TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE OR COSTS YOU MAY INCUR WHILE TRYING THIS WITH YOUR PS3, WORK AREA OR TOOLS.)
Or there is the more logical. pull your drive, slave it to your PC, and back it up. Then call Sony pay the $150 and ship it back to them. Or if it is under warranty just call them and ship it back.

ANY DISCS LEFT INSIDE WILL BE RETURNED WITHIN 3 WEEKS AFTER THE RETURN OF YOUR UNIT. ANY DATA NOT BACKED UP WILL BE LOST AS THE UNIT IS REPLACED WITH ANOTHER REFURBISHED ONE.

My ps3 turned off during a game, when you try and turn it on the light on the power switch goes green for about 3 seconds then switches off again and has a red flashing light


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning.

So in order to fix the blinking red light on your PS3 you will need to repair the connection between the HDD and the motherboard.There is actually a rather simple way that you can do this yourself; while your PS3 console is switched off, locate the hard drive enclosure on the end of your console. Remove the plastic cover plate, then using a screwdriver unscrew the hard drive itself from its socket. Carefully remove it completely, then put it back in again. Tighten the holding screw, then restart your PS3

Playstation 3 will not read the game disk but will


Hi there,

Try the steps mentioned below and the PS3 will work with the games disks as well;
1) Restore your PS3 to deafault settings under System Settings
2) Hold down the power button for several seconds until the light goes from red to green to red. Once it turns back to red, let go.
3) Finally, Hold down the power button again untill you hear 2 quick beeps... a few seconds. This will repair any damaged sectors in your HD.

Ps3 does not turn ON


looks like the YLOD, you can search some fixes of refloating the solder with a heat gun or take it to a repair shop. lastly and most expensive is sending it into sony assuming its out of warranty if it is its 150 to fix it. If still under warranty then call them asap.

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off


you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)
