Yep this is the famous yellow light of death or the red light of death. It happens because internally the ps3 is overheating, you can fix it yourself by using a good guide or of course you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

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.

Playstation 3 turns on than turns off with flashing red light


If it turns off randomly and blinks red and beeps, then it's an overheating problem.

If it turns off as soon as you turn it on and blinks red and beeps, then it's an overheating problem that is getting close to being a YloD.

If there is a yellow light mixed in with #2, then you have the Yellow Light of Death which kills your console. If this happens, repost on here saying you have the YLoD.


If the problem is #1 or 2, then leave the Ps3 off for a day and move it away from carpet and anything that makes heat. Also make sure it is atleast 4 inches away from EVERYTHING.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.
