Had the same problem but a different disc. This is what i did that got the disc out but I am still having same problem with system. First cut the power switch on the back panel to OFF position. then hold the EJECT button down and while holdiing this button down turn the power switch to ON position. I had to do this a couple of times to retrieve the disc but I did retrieve it. Now if I can figure out how to solve the other issues all will be good.Hope this works for you.

Make sure that your PS3 is not put in an air tight space, direct sunlight, or heated room where it overheats. Put it in an open space, and make sure that there's sufficient air flow. Otherwise, You'll get the 'yellow light of death' Hope this helps.

My ps3 goes to boot up an then shuts down beeps three times shows a blue light then a quick yellow light then goes to blinkin red light


You could try pressing the power button and holding it down. You will hear the first beep when you press it but hold it down until it beeps a second time it will take 5 to 10 seconds. This will reset the console and it may boot up. If this does not work you can go to www.us.playstation.com and check the user knowledgebase and/or support for a solution.

My ps3 shut down in the middle of game play. Then when I tried turning it pack on, this is what happens... The power light flashes until I touch the power button, then it goes solid red. That means it's...


It seems that your unit may have overheated while you were playing that game, that yellow like you are talking about is the 360's Red Ring of Death. Try this, eject the HDD and let it cool off for about 24 hours. Don't put it in the refrigerator or anything, just let it cool off. Tomorrow, pop it back in and make sure there's nothing covering the air vents. Dust, Paper, a Blu-Ray Player, Home Theater Box, a Wii, a 360, anything.
If it's still doing it tomorrow, call SCEA (1-800-345-7669)

I turn on and it goes green the blue then yellow then red flashing..nothing else? I have turned off for a few days and same thing just continue's. Not working at all?


Restore File System. If that do not work try Restore PS3 System.
Follow this guide. Read carefully.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Good luck!

Ps3 won't turn on just beeps then switches off


Please check if you get a yellow or red light flash and how many times does the ps3 beep before it shuts down.

If you get a Yellow Light, reason below:

If the hard-drive fails on the PS3 you may get a solid yellow led, The yellow light will show if the console is overheating as well, but the console shuts down so you don't it for long.


1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again

2) Check if there's any loose cable.

3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work, then it is suggested to send your PS3 for repairs to Sony Customer Support

Let me know of this helped and please take time to rate my solution.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming
