SOURCE: PS3 does not turn on. When I press the on button, red light turns green thne to yellow then to flashing red.

This is called a System Error. It is about the same as the Xjunks ring of death. You need to call Sony if you haven't broken your seal yet.

SOURCE: When i turn the power button on on my ps3. it goes

you have the YLoD like the RRoD its either overheating or system failure.You need to call sony to get it fixed.Check in the instruction manual for the number.You cannot fix it


If you do get it fixed vaccum it once a week,don't play for more than 6 hours,keep it ventilated,make sure the fan can blow out into the room not into one space,the best place to sit a ps3 is a glass surface

hope this helps

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Playstation 3 does not turn on...


If it s Green, then YELLOW not a lighter shade of green, then red, then you my friend have got the YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death). there are multiple fixes for this. I myself have suffered the YLOD. This fix here is the most popular. Please be careful when attempting this type of fix as you could damage your system further. WARNING!!!!! This method should only be attempted by those familiar with the inner workings of a PC or equivalent. This should not be attempted by those with little to experience with micro electronics. WARNING!!!!!

I take no responsibility for anyone trying this method to repair the YLOD nor does the creator of the video or YouTube.
