Hi, Alot of people think they know the answer to things they know nothing about.....2 units getting the ylod does not mean someone should trust you more...lol
I own a console repair shop and have fixed over 150 PS3 units. your unit displaying the flashing red light is telling your there has been a malfunction.
some people turn their systems back on to realize they have the ylod and the unit quickly turns on then off displaying the green and red lights at the same time,
giving us our yellow light. I have come across a few consoles with the exact problem you refer too. Your system is shuttting down due to a blu-ray drive failure(most likely a problem with the pcb on the bluray drive.) I was able to fix the issue by replacing the pcb, the trick is finding a compatible pcb. you have to match up the revisions.
Parts may be hard to come across, these pcb boards are very rarely listed online. So miy suggestion to you, is to find a console repair shop around your area, and see if they may have the part you need, otherwise sell your unit for parts. With blu-ray lasers being expensive, you can still easily get 80-100 for the unit.

good luck,

SOURCE: my ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off

you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

SOURCE: ps3 turns off beeps twice but there is no yellow light only red!

The yellow light is also know as the yellow light of death casued by a hardware failure. It can be casued ny over heating a bluray drive failure, a hard drive failure or even a powersupply failure. You know you have it when you power up the yellow light flashes then you hear some beeps then the red llight flashes. I would suggest returning it if you have that option or getting it fixed somewhere else as a last option.

Console wont come on red light goes green then yellow flashes then flashes red


its an error. hold down the power button till it beeps once. the hold it again till it beeps twice. The moment it beeps twice take your finger off and instantly hold it down again. your ps3 with give you 5 onscreen options, hit #3 and only number 3. that should fix the problem.
