Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

Bought my 60 gig system in Mar 07 for $600, Nov 09

Bought my 60 gig system in Mar 07 for $600 Nov 09 I got the blue yellow then flashing red light. I called sony and had to pay $150 for the repair. Now up to $750 out of pocket. The refurbished unit last about 6 wks then the same issue w/ the flashing red light. Got another system under the 90 day warranty and last night the system died again with the same exact issue. They refuse to admit there's a design flaw and it might be where I'm storing the unit. I' ve had enough of the lies.

SOURCE: PS 3 power up problem - 3 quick beeps with red blinking LED...

Not a solution as such, but I have had the same issue, replaced HDD with aftermarket and original PS3 drives, replaced PSU with replacement original and Hong Kong variants, tried different Blue Ray drive in there added new Silver based Thermal paste to CPU cores, double checked the Fan in a second PS3, even tried with and without a card reader (last ditch attempt). All failed to fix the red led issue, and all the components are tested working, the only thing left is the main board, which has to be the only component left at fault.

My console was a gen 1 , and was well passed warranty, if yours is also out of warranty, successful repairs are Hard Drives and Power Supplies, I have seen console come back with these fixes. If you can fix it with either of these, good for you, these are reasonable costing components that are worth a try, and are sell-able if not successful. After this point, its not worth throwing anymore money at it.

Part it up and sell it, buy another console...I did

SOURCE: PS3 Blinking Red Light

Actually, the yellow light is for overheating. this is a power unit failure issue here. you will need to contact Sony for this repair. The Power unit will need to be replaced.

To prevent overheating, a mini cooler aftermarket device is recommended.

As for the warranty service. we do not offer any services of that nature. You will need to contact Sony for the warranty extensions and service.

My playstation 3 turned off and when i try to turn it back on it is flashing yellow once then quickly flashing red would there be any possible chance of getting a free repair


Maybe, I'm not sure if Sony has extended the warranty on the PS3 Yellow Light of Death. I would call Sony if I were you and ask. And before you wonder, you will get the same system you bought back. I had a repair done and was specific on getting my system back. Thanks.
P.S. Stand proud, you are one of few who still have the 60gig PS3!

Your issue could be environmental.
The Yellow Light of Death usually occurs when the PS3 overheats.
PS3s require unobstructed airflow in order to remain properly cooled.
Since you've had repeated repairs for the same issue, my guess is you may be storing the PS3 in some sort enclosed space - like the inside of an entertainment center or shelf.
When your replacement PS3 returns, try placing it on top of a coffee table, end table, or bureau. Make sure nothing is blocking the exhaust holes on the sides or back, and nothing is blocking the intake holes on the front. Your PS3 needs room to breathe.
If that doesn't help the room it's kept in may be too hot. If the intake holes on the front are sucking in hot air, cooling the PS3 won't be possible. You may need a PS3 cooling accessory.

Flashing red light and disk wont eject


Im afriad your going to have to buy a new playstation3 console. Sony no longer produce 60Gb consoles and they will not replace or repair your console. Im guessing youve had your 60Gb for over one year so theres no warranty.
Sad to say but you have to buy a new one. eBay have some good offers. ;)

Ps3 turns off beeps twice but there is no yellow light only red!


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.
