That happen to mine. It was a bad power supply and mine was out of warranty so i replaced it myself and it fixed it. I believe it was just a weak power supply and was just not giving it the voltage that it needed anymore

My ps3 turns off a couple of seconds after it is turned on then the red power light blinks


If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes


do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work
Send your playstation back to Sony

Red light green light yellowlight red blinking light


From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.

Comes on then makes 3 beeps and shut off


I am sorry to say but your PS3 is dead. Do not take it to a repair shop they will steal your bluray laser and tell you the same thing. This is called blinking red lights of death or yellow light of death. There is no fix for this. Sony will replace your unit for $150. It might be $120 now (I don't recall)
