Hello,.

Follow these steps below, its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

I wish you good luck.

    Hello,

    This problem is like that of a power issue.
    Borrow a friends PS3 power cable and try it on your PS3.

    Furthermore PS3s will shut down/not work properly sometimes if you have too much dust, grime or junk inside the system.

    Take it to get it cleaned and see if that helps.

    In
    regards to getting your disk back, try pressing the eject button in the
    brief period of time you have when it`s switching for red to green then
    back again.


    Read
    your instruction manual on how to remove the hard drive, if you take
    that out you could probably clean it pretty easily with an air
    compressor (BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHILE DOING THIS, don`t hold the
    nozzle very close to the system because the air is so powerful it can
    knock something out of place)

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.

You can do this fan test.
Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it, it will beep
The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside.
After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and blink a red light.
When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally.
Let me know how this goes!!

P.S. It will not harm your ps3, It's testing the cooling fan.

PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one spot.playstation will no


Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps
