Hello,
When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
Provide a proper vent for the system...
Hope this will help...

My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.

The green light comes on for a couple of seconds then turns red and the game won't come out


This sounds like the "Yellow Light of Death". Does the console power on, flash a yellow light then go back to red, while beeping three times?

This YLOD is caused by excessive heat inside the console. Typically dust builds up and causes the machine to overheat. This damages the internal components. The good news is that a skilled professional can fix your problem.
