I push power and it shuts off right away... then i unplug power and the red light comes on ....still i press it and it goes off again


Hi russell,

The PS3 red light is a huge problem and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, all you need to do is stop the heat build up.

You have 2 ways of doing this:

You can send it in however bear in mind that for the fix you will have to wait for 4 weeks and also pay out $150 as well.

Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide to fix the problem.

Make sure you check out these reviews of the top PS3 Repair guides first!

Cheers!

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off


you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

When i switch my console on, the red light comes on & when i press the standby button the light goes to green for a split second, flashes amber & then goes straight to red? What do you think the...


The problem is known as a YLOD on the PS3 or Yellow Light of Death. Your PS3 is most probably a 60gb model as they are mostly known for this issue. The PS3 is fitted with a very good cooling system. Unfortunately some of the 60gb models still overheats (either the GPU or CPU). This causes the YLOD and is very similar to the XBox' s Red Ring of Death.

The best is to return the PS3 if still under guarantee. You can attempt to repair it yourself at own risk. There are no statistics on how long the fix lasts. Most of the YLOD consoles I repaired myself are still holding out and it seems the fix is more permanent than the Xbox 360 fix. Here is a link to the guide that must be followed and it works (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_Ic1_TY-GU) The other parts in the series you will find on the same page. There are 7 parts

After the fix a couple of things can be done to prevent future overheating:
Do not keep the PS3 in a confined space.
Keep it away from dust.
To enhance airflow, remove the cover over the HDD when switching it on.
Switch it off when not playing.

Hope it helps.
