Hello,

Is the power not working on your PS3 This can be a frustrating occurrence, especially if your PS3 was working properly before. While there are a number of reasons why this might occur, there are two common ones -- the use of a non-licensed or genuine AC adapter, or a failed AC Adapter on your PS3 On very rare occasions, the power supply adapter on your PS3 may requiring the entire PS3 unit may need to be replaced.

However, before get too worried about that -- let's try a few basic troubleshooting procedures to try and diagnose the issue. PS3 guide on this problem is fairly comprehensive and has some good content, so I have included that below. In addition, you will want to check that following common issues before moving forward.
1. Check and make sure your cables are properly plugged in. This may sound silly, but sometimes they can become loosened causing bad power connections. Best to check before you spend much time troubleshooting.
2. Does the power strip or wall outlet that your are plugging the PS3 into have power? Make sure you can plug in other devices into that same outlet to verify there is not an issue with either the power strip or the wall outlet.
3. Make sure there is adequate ventilation. Although it is covered below, it is best to make sure there is several inches of free space at the back of the PS3 to provide good air circulation to the PS3 so it does not overheat.
Here is the PS3 information on trying to troubleshoot power problems on a PS3:
1. Make sure that the model number "RVL-002 (USA)" molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work
correctly.
Hope this will help...

SOURCE: my playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on

PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

The red ligth of power is flashing and doesnt on my ps3


PS3 show red light in the power indication are a series of hardware errors. It also will beep 3 times and show blinking red light and shut down as is. Do you know, it's waste your time and money if you send to somewhere repair - because the same problems will be back after then. The best way is to learn the repair techniques of yourself.

My ps3 don,t stay on it shows a yellow blinking ligth and then a red blinking ligth


The all mighty Red Blinking Light of Death. This in most cases is when the actually PS3 Hard-Drive or the CPU it self has taken a dump. Its the only two problems that causes this and 80% of the time it is caused by the PS3 being left on for long periods of time, or the Hard-Drive has taken a turn for the worse and has to be replaced. Hope its the Hard Drive, for one main reason.. its like a $40 dollar fix. The CPU can not be repaired, inless you wish to buy a hole new board/CPU assembly which that is around a $200 dollar fix.
