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.

When you turn the unit on it goes to a green light then beeps twice and goes to a flashing red light?


This is an overheating problem.
Let it sit for about a day and then try it out.

Make sure it has ATLEAST 4 inches of open space all around it and is not near any heat-making devices, it makes enough heat on its own.
Also make sure it's not on carpet.



If it ever starts to immediately shut-off, blink green yellow and then repeating red with 3 beeps, you have the Yellow Light of Death.
This is a console killer.

Repost as a different question if it turns into the YLOD.

Was playing a ps2 game when the PS3 suddenly shut off. When I try to turn it back on by the back, the light turns red. As soon as i press the power button it beeps once, I hear a whir, then it powers off....


does the light blink red?
if so you have the TERRIBLE BLINKING LIGHT OFF DEATH
you have a few options:
1.call sony, send in your ps3, recieve a refurbished ps3 for $150
2.find a local to fix it for much cheaper
3.buy a new console

Certain DVDs cause my PS3 to shut off and blinking red light


The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

If you think the **** player is causing the problem remove it and see if it turns on if not you could try another one and see if it works.

I just tried to turn my PS3 on it turned on but shut off about 5 seconds after booting up


This could be any of a number of problems try these solutions one of which may work. If they all fail to work you can contact sony directly at:

or

  • Remove any obstructions from the vents.
  • Allow at least 4 inches of clearance on all sides for the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Remove the PLAYSTATION 3 from any cabinets so it is out in the open.
  • Shut the PLAYSTATION 3 down completely and let it cool down to room temperature, then try running it again.
  • If the fan cannot be heard before the system shut down, the PLAYSTATION 3 may need to be sent in for service.
  • If there is no airflow from any of the vents, the system may need to be sent in for service
Hope this helps. Be sure to rate if it helped or not.
