Why is my PS3 having problems turning on? It makes the noise then blinks green for a second then turns yellow and then blinks red completely.


I think you may be referring to the famed yellow light of death people are talking about. It's basically the 360's 3 red lights of death, except it's happening to a good console, instead of a piece of ****.

My playstation 3 wont turn on. the red light on


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

I went to turn on my ps3 the power light turned green then yellow, and then just flashes red? it never starts up?


send it back to sony.... its called the YLOD.(yellow light of death) same as the RROD (red ring of death) for the xbox 360. if its not under warranty then you could open it up and fix it yourself. look here.

Yes this is the YLOD (Yellow light of death) to fix it you need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chips in the motherboard to do this you should use the recommended PS3 Repair guide.

Same **** happened with my PS3. So I returned it, and got the newer version of it. I went home and plugged it in: The fan came on along with a green light. BUT THEN..... 5 seconds into it, the damn thing shuts down and flashes red along with the three beeps. Not to mention the yellowish orange light. Even the brand new version did the same ****. I am in your same position and I would love to hear a way to fix this. Pretty weak.
