My ps3 wheni go to turn it on n press the button the lite goesfrm green rite back to red n wont turn on


This fix works for some models, so if it does not work for you please tell me your model number

Look at the bottom. This is what it looks like:

SONY

PLAYSTATION 3

CECH-*** = Your model number

SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT INC.

MADE IN XXXXX

You can do this fan test.
Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it, it will beep
The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.
After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and blink a red light.
When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.
Let me know how this goes!!

P.S. It will not harm your ps3, It's testing the cooling fan.

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.

PS3 isn't coming on.


Most likely the disc has gotten jammed in the drive. Your best solution is to find an official Sony repair center if it is still on warranty. If not, find someone who is willing to take it apart and remove the CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc.

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps. Also be sure to rate whether this helped or not.

PS3 won't power up.


Hi,
THis issue is a motherboard issue, sort of like the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.  It will need to be repaired.  If it is under warranty then send it to Sony, otherwise we fix this issue in my repair shop, just go to joegoods.com
