Sounds like the YLOD (yellow light of death) really red light, but you get the point. This is a common problem especially with the older thick PS3 when they over heat the chips get unseated in the solder. Sometimes opening up the system there are plenty of good guides on youtube ect just google them. You can get a heat gun and float them to reset the solder. This is the best solution then what nobody talks about is the changes you need to do after wards like weekly/monthly maintained of keeping it clean and well ventilated. You can also send it to a repair shop or send it to sony think they charge $150 and usually give a refurbished model to replace yours so isnt to cool, repair shops are best if you dont want to do it yourself.

Sorry couldnt give you something simple and sweet.

DO YOU FIX PS3s... I have tryed everything i can think of incloding different cables HD & normal,different TVs HD & normal Also holding down the power button and waiting for the beeps.But nothing...


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

TV turns on at odd hours by itself


Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill
