Hi, its not good news im afraid the reason it shuts down and gives you a ref light is due to damage being done to the circuit board inside the ps3.
it could be that it has over heated which is often the case this could be down to dust build up or if the heat sink paste on the gpu and cpu chip has gone brittle or if you have been using the ps3 on carpet or in top of anything else that gives off heat such as dvd or sky box, these cause it to over heat really quick.

right now you have a couple of options if you have any warranty left take it back and get a refund if your warranty has run out then you could try getting it repaired but their is no guarantee the repair will work or how long it will work after the reapir.

as you have got the red light this does mean the console has over heated and their is a fault with the board so its not going to work again the way it is.

now i repair these for 25 quid plus parts so you need to look around if you want it repaired and see what the best price you can get.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My PS3 has had the YLOD 3 times now and I've repaired every time myself. Each time I repaired it last about 6months before it gets hit by the YLOD again. After repairing the console for a 3rd time I was...


Thank You..... Thank You... Thank you.. for answering your own question :) I was going through the exact same thing and couldn't figure it out for the life of me. Only difference was this was only my second re-flow. I know I did everything perfect too. Because like you mine last 6-8 month's. Not two weeks some some who don't put the added tlc needed. After reading your solution I noticed that because of the way that ribbon bends. Some of the beads were protruding from the ribbon. So I pushed them down with a plastic fork prong so I wouldn't rip it. Then flipped the ribbon so it wouldn't bend over the end again. Thank you again Chilled....

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.

You can try accessing the PS3 Recovery Menu and perform some maintenance to try and fix it. Instructions here. If that doesn't work, you should contact Sony Customer Service.

When i turn my ps3 on,red light goes green then red right away


Try disconnecting your PS3 and then for 10 seconds if that doesn't work, disconnect all jackets meaning all usb connection ports connected in it. Remove them, then turn on your ps3 see what happens (without using the controller), then disconnect the ps3 cord that connects to your extension cord or jacket and plug it back in. Try it again. Then again with the controller could try. Try disconnecting other ports such as other stuff like as listed, Irons,Fans, etc.           !!!!!!DON'T USE TOO MUCH POWER!!!!


The Same thing happened to me on my Wii though.



If nothing works call Customer Support (SONY)
