There are many reasons cause PS3 keep turning off and remain blinking yellow light. Your PS3 hardware need some kind of fixes. Send back to Sony is expensive. You better repair by yourself. I suggest you bought this guide, you can learn how to trouble shooting and disassembly your console and fix it at last. Good luck!

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

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.

When I turn on my Playstation 3, a green light stays on and then the fan goes into "Turbo Mode" for about 30 seconds, the Playstation 3 beeps 3 times and the green light blinks. -No yellow light appears.


have you ever had the playstation taken apart? Maybe you need to replace the Thermal past on the processors. It is due to an overheating problem. I have one right now that does that.

Blinking red light


When someone say that his/her Xbox is having Blinking red light problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's blinking red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.
