You could always take the unit apart, though to get the disk out your probably going to void your warranty.

I have dropped my sons PS3 and says NO SIGNAL , it turns on and can hear it working inside , the light is green


You can try a video reset.

While the PS3 is off (solid red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep. Quickly release. You'll hopefully see the screen flash and then you'll hear the PS3 chime.

Let me know if that works.

How to repair PS3 Blinking Red Light Problem?


If you are looking to solve the problem of<b> PS3</b> flashing red, you've come to the right place because that is exactly what is learned in this article. The <b>PS3</b> does not have many problems as the Xbox 360 has, but like any other device, which has few. At first it was thought that the game "Call of Duty 4", also known as COD4 was responsible, but this is not true, because a few months later people without the game became the problem of light flashing red.<br /> <br /> If you do not know what you do, you should contact Sony to find out what the problem exactly, but it is usually due to overheating of the drive. Just to be safe, do not open the <b>PS3</b> on its own. If you have no warranty or expired, it can cost around $ 140 to repair your<b> PS3</b>.<br /> <br /> You should not be disappointed and sad when your <b>PS3</b> is flashing red light problem. Most of the time, there is a problem with your disk or hard drive itself is broken.<br /> <br /> Quickly be resolved by replacing the <b>PS3</b> while the disc. To do this you must remove the hard drive and then once again placed inside the <b>PS3</b> in the same way. Usually, this is the answer to the problem of the <b>PS3 </b>flashing red light. If red light does not go very far in implementing the method so you will have a new unit or in some cases a <b>new PS3,</b> ay!<br /> But do not worry because even if you have to get a new unit can be anything. Up to $ 50 you work. And the odds are very small, you must get a <b>new PS3</b>, because the method I said repairs to 9 / 10 times! This will allow you to return to the game!<br />

I turn my PS3 on and after a second it turns itself off again but the red light keeps flashing. It started doing this while playing games but now it doesnt even start. What can it be?


Hello,

There's a switch in the back, the only benefit of using the power button is that it can be turned back on with the controller. Dont use the switch when your game is saving or anything is downloading because you could corrupt the saved game/download (I don't think it'll let you turn it off from the front button when it's writing to the hard drive- the switch in the back actually cuts off the power.)

Re: PS3 turns off alone and red light keep flashing
You officially have YLOD or "yellow light of death". I have had it twice.. I also wanted my data.. so I researched.. no matter what you do.. if you send it to sony its gone.. it cant be recovered outside of the ps3 or in a different one. I know a guy who will repair your ps3 leaving all your data intact for 80 dolllars.. he sells his service on ebay and if it breaks again within three months just ship it back to him and he'll fix it for free. If you want to know just PM me


Clean out the vents with vaccuum cleaner. If symptoms persist, call Sony.

Take care......

How can I fix the flashing red light on my PS3


The flashing red light indicates the PS3 is overheating. This could be caused by: 1. a short circuit in the Power Supply 2. You may need a new fan or 3. the heatsinks may not be making proper contact with the motherboard chips.

While playing a game console turned off and game disc is stucked inside, turn power on and light turns green for couple seconds then flashes red and turns back off, no chance to eject game disc.


Hello,
When the power status light flashes red after using the PS3 system for 3 or more minutes and shuts off, the PS3 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked.
The blinking red light is infact a general hardware failure message. In this particular case, his hardware failure is with the blu-ray drive, that's why the system does not shut down until the drive is accessed. if the system is overheating, it will tell you so in the top right hand corner. It will say the system has overheated and is shutting down to avoid further damage.
Provide a proper vent for the system...
Hope this will help...

Green light then red/green light then flashing red


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 3 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,,
