Try holding the power button for about 10 seconds until you hear a second beep. This may allow you to get in?

My ps3 wont start, you can plug it and it has a red flashing light, wont power on or nothing, cant even soft start it. what is and what can i do. any help will be very appreciated


Hi frankie,

Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?

If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

you got a YLOD yellow light of death when you get a yellow light briefly and then the red lights start blinking, you need to reflux the solder on the processors and apply heat to them, here is a link on how to do the repair, if you are not good at doing these kind of work, I would suggest taking it to a pro.

Hi, when i turn on my ps3 it turns off like 15 seconds after and a red light starts to beep. it doesnt seem so hot so what do i do to fix it?


you cant that red flashing light means you have a hardware failure ring sony for a new one if its under warranty, if not google quick fixes for ps3 errors but it is hard to diagnose the specific failure so it can be difficult

My ps3 wont power up


try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .

Ps3 problem, ps3 doesnt turn on (stays in red light flashing)


Sounds like a heat sync problem. you will more that likely need to re-seat the GPU and CPU as well. email dwdpcrepair@gmail.com for more assistance

20 g japanese ps3, its turning itself off during startup and red light is flashing.


this could be down to the need of more power from your plug as when i use my power convertor it needs to be on high rather then low otherwise teh console doesnt power up
