No much you can do, open it up and clean it up and let it dry, use 80% rubbiing alchohol and tooth brush and clean as much as you can and dry everything up! look for a fuse that might have blown, if all else sell on ebay!

When I turn on my ps3 model cechg01, it blinks the green light a couple times then shuts itself off. No other color lights just the green one, then beeps three times and shuts off.. Can anybody help narrow...


When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

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 should 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 ever i turn on my ps3, it stays green for a few seconds then beeps and a light green comes on and then it turns it self off.


Your post is a little confusing. So youre saying that when you turn your PS3 on and the green light comes on...the system then beeps and then turns itself off? nothing shows up on the TV?

If that is the case, its definitely something wrong with the system/OS. Did you download anything or install anything from the net THROUGH the PS3? Or have you hooked up any external drives that may be carrying a virus? Linux systems are not 100% protected from viruses these days so getting one on the PS3 is not unheard of.

You may want to check and see if your system is overheating. Make sure its well ventilated and also use the air-in-a-can **** to clean out some of the dust

I turn it on and a green lignt comes on then turns yellow and shuts back off and blinks red


Hello,

"When the power status light flashes red after turning it on the PS3 system and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."

When i turn the ps3 on the green light comes on then red light comes on blinking instantly blinking then shuts off


Sorry, but your system has overheated and has to be replaced with a new one. Happened to me too. Return the system to the shop you bought it from and they'll give you a new one.

My PS3 overheated and won't turn on either.


normally when the ps3 overheats the system will shut down no matter what you're doing, a bit annoying really, though what yoyu have to do is just wait a bit for it to cool to room temp and try again, if it doesn't in the end then i'm sorry but you have fried the cpu, and you must take it back to the shop for repaires
