My ps3 will not stay turned on when i do try to turn it on its light turns to a yellowish color and then starts flashing red like it's off but it stays flashing unless you turn off the switch


The PS3 Yellow Light is the 360's cousin for the Red Ring of Death. My assumption is that you may have unintentionally blocked any sort of cooling the PS3 has. Here are some steps in correcting that yellow light. This information comes from HowtoFixyourPS3.com:

In order to fix your PS3 yellow light error, there are 3 things that you can do.

1 - Restart your Playstation 3.
2 - Check for loose cables.
3 - Unplug all cables, and plug them back in.
4 - Take out your hard-drive, and place it back in your console.

If these 4 tips didn't fix the PS3 yellow light problem, then it's high likely that there's something wrong with your hardware. In order to repair that problem, you can do 2 things. You either send your console over to Sony. Or, you simply fix the problem yourself while using a PS3 repair guide.

Ps3 when turning on will turn yellow turn off and


Can you turn on your PS3 and eject while it is trying to boot? I always thought the yellow light was a hard drive failure. You can get an SATA laptop drive and replace yourself if it is in fact ta HD failure.

Hi, my ps3 is not working, it flashes a red light and when i try to turn it on a yellow light comes up and then turns off again.Thank you


You have got the YLOD (yellow light of death). The yellow means that there is an internal problem with your ps3 and the red mean overheating. My guess is that you have the older ps3 because those ps3 models have a designer flaw in the coooling system and if so your ps3 is most likely out of warranty which means you will need to send your ps3 to sony for $150(unless you can find someone to do it cheaper which is what I did).

Light turns on, light turns yellow, light turns red and blinks.


Your ps3 has overheated. This is the equivilent to the red ring of death for xbox 360. The ps3 problem is called "yellow light of death" this means your ps3 has died due to the console being overheated. The solution to this problem is either getting a new playstation or take it to a shop in the UK and they could help you fix it for a price around £30-£50 GBP.

PS3 Yellow light


There is nothing wrong with the PS3. I read in the users manual that when the the green light on the PS3 turns yellow or flashes yellow the PS3 is too hot and you need to turn it off. It has never happened to me because I keep my PS3 in a open area.

When the PS3 gets to hot you need to let it sit and cool for a little while and then you can turn it back on and start playing again. If the PS3 cools for a while and it still doesn't work you need to call Sony.
