  • The interior of the system has become unusually hot. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location or whether the vents are blocked. Stop using the system and leave it unused until it cools down. Continuing to use the system in the above condition will cause it to stop functioning.

  • The temperature inside the system has risen too high. Check whether the system is being used in a hot location or whether the vents are blocked. Touch the system's power button to stop the flashing, and then leave the system unused until it cools down. After it cools down, turn on the system again.

    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

    My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


    PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

    Mid game my console beeped and shutoff. Now it wont eject disk or turn on at all. Light goes Green, Yellow then flashes Red


    your PS3 overheated, what you need to do is remove the power cable and hold the power button for 5 seconds to make sure that there is no power left, then plug it back in and press the eject button hold it down, it will power up and eject disk, if that fails, you need to RMA your ps3 to sony or you can try and return it to vendor with the game case or dvd case of the disk that is stuck they should replace both

    I believe you have the PS3's version of the RRoD, it's extremely rare (0.03%), but statistics mean nothing to the individual.

    Either call Sony's support helpline (the number should be on their site somewhere) and ask them what to do/to fix it or take it back to the retailer you bought it from with the receipt and ask if they can replace it.
