Yes this is the red/yellow light and you will need to get it fixed, it is not a power surge unfortunately!

It is the motherboard taking too much heat!

You can fix it at home with a top guide or send it in.

Playstation 3 shuts down and cant reset


Does it blink red or yellow lights? That's a sign of hardware failure and the system needs to be serviced.

How do you connect 200897 battery, it is no longer working


I just bought a battery (readily available) for $16 and here is how I replaced it, but first, make sure UPS is disconnected from 120 Volt service. (Old battery number SW1233 with F connectors.)

Turn the UPS over and look for 1 tiny screw (even with the "in" telephone wire socket). Remove the screw (turn CCW). Push the button marked push, then slip a steak knife or sharp putty knife into the joint in front of the screw hole. Twist the tool enough to start the battery cover moving backward (to your left).

The battery is upside down. Lift it high enough to grab wires and pull them off the postst.

Verify battery you bought fits the housing. With UPS upside down, place battery on right side with lugs toward the power cable. Push red wire onto red post. Hold the battery upside over UPS. Push black wire onto black post.

Visually ensure the wires both run in their channels (otherwise the battery will not seat and the cover won't slide on.) Push battery into slot until it bottoms.

When the battery is bottomed properly, hold the cover about 2/3's over the battery housing, push it down, then push it toward the screw hole (to your right). If this operation, or the cover jams near the screw hole, check the battery. It must be absolutely bottomed in the slot. The cover won't go on easily even when everything is perfectly aligned.

After the cover is closed and the screw replaced, plug the UPS into a wall socket. The on/off button has a mind of its own, so ignore it. The green light may light and there is one beep. The backup yellow light may blink. The green light may stay solidly on. Pull the cord plug out of the wall. Now the UPS green light may go out and you will hear a ratcheting sound (the UPS is making AC from the 12 Volt battery current). Because you have no device plugged into a "battery-backup" plug, the UPS will shut off automatically in a few minutes.

The last test is to reconnect the plug to the wall service, then plug a monitor, a music system, or something similar into a Battery B/U connector. The green light should light. When the UPS is again unplugged, the yellow light (Backup) flashes and there is a repeating beep. Plug UPS back in. Only the green light will be on. That's it, all done.

I use Newpoint UPS to back up my telephone/modem. During a brownout, SPS powers those units almost 2 hours.

Note: This UPS is not suitable for powering or charging Laptops because the power output is too dirty.

When I turn on my ps3 model cechg01, it blinks the green light a couple times then shuts itself off. No other color lights just the green one, then beeps three times and shuts off.. Can anybody help narrow...


When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

The light is blinking red and it wouldnt turn on. It flashes red the green then yellow it beeps and shuts back off. i Unpluged evewrything then plug it back in carefully, nothing. I removed the Hardrive...


Hi there,

Despite the other colors you are getting, the fact that is flashed yellow indicates the yellow light of death. A critical piece of hardware inside your PS3 has failed and it needs to be serviced. I would suggest calling SCEA at 1-800-345-7669.

My xbox 360 has 3 flashing lights?


  1. Try restarting the console.
  2. If restarting the console does not resolve the behavior, follow these steps:
    • Turn the console off.
    • Unplug all the power and AV cables from the console.
    • Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
    • Firmly reconnect all the cables.
    • Turn on the console.
  3. If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
  4. Also examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the RoL flash red.
Now, if the above troubleshooting tips don't yield results, i recommend using the link below to combat this issue further.

PS3 won't turn on


hi Torgsrus.
PS3 Light sequence
The following pictures illustrate the CECHX0X model, however the light sequence is applicable to all PlayStation 3 models.

No lights are on:

When no lights are on, this means that the main power switch on the back of the ps3 is off or the PS3 is unplugged. When the main power switch is off (the '0' is pressed) and you will not be able to access any features of the PS3 system. To turn on the PS3 system, make sure the main power switch is on (the 'I' side is pressed down).

If the PS3 does not turn on:
· Make sure the power cord is not frayed or damaged
· Try using another power cord, if available
· Make sure the main power switch on the back of the PS3 system is turned on
· If you continue to have issues contact our Technical support.

Solid Red:


When the power status light is solid red, this means that the PS3 system is off (or in standby mode).
Standby, mode means the PlayStation 3 system is off, but is ready to be turned on by pressing the power button.

If the ps3 system will not turn on when you press the power button, this is an issue with the PS3 system and you will need to send your system in for service.

Solid Green:

When the power status light is solid green, this means that the PS3 is turned on.
You should be able to navigate the XMB, play games, access the Playstation store,etc.
To turn of the PS3, simply press and hold the power button for two or more seconds.
If the power status light is green ,and you are experiencing problems- have a look on our forums for troubleshooting.

Flashing Red:


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 overheated.

This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
If this happens:
· Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.
· If the PS3 system is in an enclosed area like an entertainment area, move it to a more open area.
· Leave the ps3 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.
· If you continue to have issue, you may need to send the console in for service.

Flashing Green:


When the power status light flashed green, it means that the PS3 system is turning off. Please wait while the system turns off.

If the PS3 system does not shut down immediately, it may be trying to finish save data to the Hard Drive. If it is, do not turn the main power switch on the back off as it may cause data on your hard drive to be corrupted.

If the green light continues to flash green, the ps3 system maybe trying to write to the hard drive, shutting down or running programs. It may take longer to shut down depending on when you pressed the power button. If the green power light flashed for a very long time, you can try holding the power button down for 5 seconds, the console will beep and should turn off. Then try to restart the PS3 system.
Flashing Green, Yellow and Red:


When the power status light goes from green, to yellow, to green, then to a flashing red, this means that they may be an issue with an internal part with in the PS3 system. This may be caused by a variety of reasons and would need to be diagnosed by our support line.

When the PS3 power light flashes in this order, you can contact our Support Line for further assistance.

Solid Blue:

When the disk status light is remaining a solid blue, it means the disc is inside the PS3 system. If you wish to eject the disc, hold down the eject button for 2 seconds and the blue disc status light will flash indicating the PS3 system is attempting to eject the disc . (NB: the power indicator light will always be a solid green).

If the disc is inserted into the ps3 system, but does not show up on the xmb or will not play, this may indicate an issue with the reader- check our guide Discs are not loading in my PlayStation 3? for further troubleshooting.

Flashing Blue:


When the disc status light is flashing blue, it means a disc was just inserted into the ps3 system or a disc is trying to eject from the ps3 system. Depending on when you pressed the eject button, it may take longer for the disc to eject. (NB: the power light will always be a solid green)
If the light constantly flashes blue, it may be an issue with the disk being stuck in the system. If this happens there is no way to remove the disc yourself if you are using an orginal 60GB PlayStation.
