    Damn that sucks. But no, I don't get any message or anything it just cuts off after a few seconds and the power light just keeps flashing red.

    hold down the power button until you hear 3 beeps, if noting happens, tell me some background about this, did you perform a update recently? when did it start happening?

My ps3 won't stay on. Everytime I turn it on it turns off.


Yellow Light of Death problem.

It's related to the GPU on the motherboard ( in almost every case)

Sony's the best place to get it fixed right the first time.

I wouldn't recommend you repairing it yourself.

My PS3 when I turn it on it immediately turns green to red


Hi, this is what is referred to as the YLoD. It is the same basic thing as the RROD on the 360's. It is caused from your GPU and CPU separating from the heatsinks, and the system can't tell the temp. properly, so it shuts down because it thinks its overheated. The only fix for this is to tear apart your PS3 all the way to the bare motherboard and put new thermal compound between the processors and the heatsinks.

Ps3 not turning on


The only thing i can think of is click the switch to turn off the PS3 completely leave it off for about 30 second turn the switch back on and try again. If the doesn't work you may have a problem with your power supply and might need to get your PS3 serviced
