This problem is usually known as Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) and is one of the most common issues of PS3. However, it is repairable and you can do it all by yourself at home within maximum 2 hours.

You might want to check if yours has got what people call YLOD (yellow loght of death) which basically means that there's a hardware failure on your PS3

My ps3 turns off a couple of seconds after it is turned on then the red power light blinks


If your PS3 console attempts to turn on, then beeps and a yellow light comes on and then your Sony PlayStation 3 shuts down or does not power on at all or shows no video means YLOD or Yellow Light Of death has occurred! A guy had same problem with His console 6 months back, He was able to fix it for 15 bucks ! without sending it to Sony for costly repair.

Why is my PS3 having problems turning on? It makes the noise then blinks green for a second then turns yellow and then blinks red completely.


I think you may be referring to the famed yellow light of death people are talking about. It's basically the 360's 3 red lights of death, except it's happening to a good console, instead of a piece of ****.

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.

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.
