I tryed to to turn the playtion on and it turns right back off with a double beep and the red light flashes, what cld be the problem/


I think this would be the Yellow Light Of Death problem. When it beeps is the light yellow then after PS3 turns off Yellow light will turn red and flash. I haven't seen this happen myself as yet but lots of other people are having this problem. Caused by your machine getting too hot. You can google YLOD and you will find thousands of comments on this problem. They say you can fix it yourself if you are good with tools or else you need to send it to one of the many places that can repair it for you.

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.

Red light flashing


With the older FAT PS3, if you turn off the system from the main switch in the back then back ON. The red light should stop flashing. But if you do this and Power On again. Watch the color of the light. If it goes from red to yellow then flashing red light. Then this is the YLOD = Yellow Light Of Death. This can only be fixed by shipping it back to Sony ($150.00) or void the warranty and take the system apart to reflow the motherboard. There are guides on Youtube if you have the right tools. I have done the reflow many of times.

Ps3 wont turn on when i try it will beep and a yellow light will turn on and then it will turn back to the red light


i am sorry to say this but you have a irreversible condition called: The yellow light of death, similar to the X-Box's red ring of doom! you will have to buy a new ps3 sadly, but this only happens to about 1% of ps3, so your odds are better.
