Try hard reset.

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

Hopefully if there is or was any type of virus it will defiantly be removed. If there is some other type of problem having to do with the hardware, then you are going to have to send it to Sony for a replacement.

Play won't turn on,light keep blinking red


Yes this is the YLOD the (Yellow light of death) it happens when the GPU and the CPU overheat and you will need to fix this by stopping the heat build up, you can sned it in and they will fix it for you for $130.

Or you can fix it yourself using a good PS3 Repair guide in under an hour!

My ps3 wont on when i on it i offs


You have the dreadful blinking red light of death. Long story short the system is broken due to overheating and heat damage to the motherboard and you have a few options:
  1. send the system to sony and receive a refurbished system for $150.
  2. find a local to do it for much cheaper
  3. watch vids on the web (youtube.com) and fix it yourself but it is fairly difficult.
  4. buy a new ps3.
I hope I have helped and feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it goes.

Disc stuck and then Ps3 system when turned on goes from green to yellow then blinking red


PS3 has overheated and the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync need to be replaced. the gpu and cpu may need to be reflowed as well. Had the same problem and fixed mine. The thermal compound was pretty much gone when i opened up the system. Also dont keep your ps3 on its side leave it flat this will help keep the compound from moving as much.
