Sorry, but you have the yellow light of death. This is not fixable using ordinary household equipment. Call sony, yellow light normally means catastrophic hardware failure.

My playstation just shut off an the red light flashes


do you get a yellow light? i bet you do..

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
Send your playstation back to Sony

System comes on and immediately red light flashes


PS3 flashing is not hard to fix. Do you want to fix it by yourself instead of pay $150 checking to Sony? Here's the solution :

PS3 has blinking red power light and nothing else


switch it off from the back,, hold down the eject button, and turn it on from the back,, it should spit the cd out,,

The ps3 needs to be sent back to be fixed it is YLOD..<--not good
it will take at least 4-6 weeks before you get your Console back. And also, if your warranty is expired, you have to pay a big fat $150,- to get the job done!

or go to youtube and look for a PS3 Ylod fix,,

My son ps3 stopped working


turn the main power switch off then on(the one on the back) then hold your finger on the I/O button on the front till you get a second beep. This will reset the ps3, if this did not fix the problem then something is broken.
