This is simply a manufacturer defect, as many of these high priced consoles are having.

Contact the company, you should find all the contact information inside the box or on the box your PS3 came in... let them know that your machine is dying quickly and how the lights change, they will send you a box in which you can return your PS3 and have them repair it and send it back to you free of charge and working prefectly :) Although it takes some time for them to get it back to you, it's worth the wait when your PS3 is running without any problems.

Hope this helps :)

Turn on power, hit the turn on button and the light goes from red to green then to yellow and then shuts off


Hi, ap_1!

Sadly when a playstation led starts flashing a yellow/amber color it means that there's a hardware issue that's causing your system to overheat. Sadly you only have 3 options: Buy a new PS3, start the repair process through Sony (which means you will receive a refurbished PS3), or repair your PS3 through a 3rd party. There's really no way to fix it yourself without advanced tools and extra repair parts and still it would void the warranty and you'd be risking further damage to your PS3 console.

For more information about the issue check this post on the playstation forums:

I apologize for the inconvinience. I hope it ends well.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

Ps3 wont eject just turns itself off


Try booting the system while holding the power on button. Hold the button and keep it held until it turns off. After the system shuts off, try turning it on normally. Let me know if this helps.

60gb ps3 wont start up.


Possibly the very common mother board failure. Slight possibility that the power supply is failed, but the capacitors in either component can be tested with capacitor tester and service manual to test for the faulty component.

Got a ps3 that when I try to turn it on the light goes green then sharply turns yellow then goes red and starts beeping.


Keeping hitting the on switch really quick. Keep doing it for a while till you hear a couple beeps in a row. It's like jump starting a car all of a sudden it will contact. It is the button on the ps3 that have the problem.

I don't think the outlet you are plugging it into has enough power to support the ps3. Try plugging it into a different outlet and see if it works.
