Sounds like you have a processing error. The same thing probably happens when you turn it on and let it be. It has to be opened and the processor reseated. Not something easily done on your own.
Try CPR in NYC. They are quicker and cheaper than SONY, and you can easily ship to them.

Flashing red light will not eject game


if you turn it on, and it goes green then yellow then beeps 3 times and flashes red, then your ps3 has overheated and been damaged. you can fix it with the heat gun trick, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU

but it will only break again.

try flipping the switch in the back, then hold the eject button while you flip the switch back on, that should eject the disc.

My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.

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

When I turn on my PS3 the light flashes green 3 times then yellow twice then red. It won't eject the game disk. I've tried holding the eject button for up to 30 seconds without success.


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony. North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

The system come up fine and allows you to get on line and play but after about 15 min the video freezes and the only way to get started again is to restart the system. After the restart it last a shorter...


Do you have adequate ventilation? Is the PS3 vertical or horizontal? My first thought it that it might be overheating. Try setting the console down horizontally with about 6 inches of clearance on all sides to insure enough airflow.
