Maybe its the cable, or the power brick inside the ps3.

HELP... I have a big problem with my PS3. My system was okay when I took it apart for cleaning but i completely disassembled it and cleaned the dust. I put it back together and now it wont work! When I...


Hi,

I fix PS3 Yellow Light of Death.

When you say you completely dissasembled it i guess you mean EVERYTHING?
Well did you make sure you plugged the battery back in? and Made sure all connections were placed back?

If you took off the heatsink and fan from the chips then that is why it switched off!
You should have put new paste on if thats the case!
The PS3 seems it is shutting down to protect itself from overheating and burning the chips!
The baby scratch should be ok unless it has destroyed a copper track?

Goodluck let me know how it goes and please rate!

My playstation 3 : everytime i turn it on it goes green then back to red and wont turn on? When it was working it just froze so i turned it off and since then it hasnt turned back on


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning .

PS3 Console switches on for no reason. I turn it off and sometimes 5 minutes later, sometimes 4 hours later it switches itself back on.As it is connected to the TV by HDMI it switches on the TV as well....

What most likely is causing this is another device grounding back to the PS3. Note with modern electronics they have contact switches. The work by competing the circuit to turn the device on or off.

So to test to see if it is a device causing this or an actual problem with the PS3 is to unplug all connections from the system. This includes your HDMI connection. At this point all you should have plugged in is the power cable.

Let the system set to see if it turns on. If it does not then we know it is not the PS3 that is the problem. Next start adding back in the other device until you figure out which one is causing the problem. Note I have had seen several cases where people had bad HDMI cables so you might test those first.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

PS3 wont stay on


Your PS3 may be overheating. Check the exhaust of the ps3 where the hot air comes out for any excessive dust. If you have a 60GB PS3, you can blow them out by turning off the PS3 by the back switch and then turning it on using the back switch with you finger on the eject button. The PS3 should beep 3 times and your fans should go at full tilt for about 30sec to 1 min.

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

PS3 starts but wont turn on


you could have a problem with your power cord which is causing your ps3 to short before the system can power on fully. try using a different power cord or check the ports of both the outlet and the ps3 to make sure there is nothing blocking anything. also, try using a different outlet.
