PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one spot.playstation will no


Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

It wont turn on just flashed red light and wont give the disk back


watch the lights on the front when you try to turn it on. If the blue light flashes yellow for a second, you have ahardware failure, so-called Yellow Light of Death. You can get the disc out by turning off the switch at the back, then hold down the eject button and turn the back button on again.

Mid game my console beeped and shutoff. Now it wont eject disk or turn on at all. Light goes Green, Yellow then flashes Red


your PS3 overheated, what you need to do is remove the power cable and hold the power button for 5 seconds to make sure that there is no power left, then plug it back in and press the eject button hold it down, it will power up and eject disk, if that fails, you need to RMA your ps3 to sony or you can try and return it to vendor with the game case or dvd case of the disk that is stuck they should replace both

When I turn on my PS3 the light flashes green 3 times then yellow twice then red. It won't eject the game disk. I've tried holding the eject button for up to 30 seconds without success.


Yellow lights and blinking red lights indicates general hardware failure on ps3. If your ps3 is still under warranty call Sony. North America: 1-800-345-SONY (7669) United Kingdom: 08705 998877
Now you could try doing a few things (hey it's worth a try!)
1. Turn off the switch in the back and wait a few minutes. Turn it back on and try it again. If that doesn't work it may be dead.
2. You could try this article, if you choose to, it's a long shot but might work for you in your case. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.

Dell crashed with cd still in drive - how to remove disc?


To manually eject a CD look for a little pin hole usually below the cd drawer. Unfold a paper clip and stick it in there and push. The cd drawer should come out a little. Also sometimes you can hold down the cd eject button as the computer is powering up and it might eject.

The flashing yellow light seems to be a more serious problem. Do you have any ABCD diagnostic lights on the rear of the machine?
It may be either a bad power supply or bad motherboard (capacitors bulged or leaking). You can visually inspect the motherboard by looking at the capacitors (look like little tiny soda cans). If any are bulging or leaking any fluid then they are bad. They should be perfectly flat on top. If you feel adventurous you can take apart the power supply and look at it also. Just make sure it is unplugged.
