Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Put in a dvd and it just shut off. Will not power up.
What happens when you try and turn it back on? Nothing? or does it give you any kind of lights?
If you get what looks like a yellow light and then you hear 3 beeps and it shuts back off then you have what they call the "yellow light of death". You can send it back to sony if you still have a warranty. If not you can have them fix it for $150. Or you can try fixing it yourself. There's youtube videos on how to do that.
I can help you get back your dvd. Turn off the power switch in the back. Now that the PS3 is off hold down the eject button. While keeping that held down turn the power button back on. You then should hear the fan start to get really loud (that means it's working). Soon after... the dvd should pop out and there you have it.
Hope that helps.
