Red light comes on then when I try to turn it on the machine makes a whirring sound for a second like its trying to come on then it goes to flashing red and wont take a disc.Any ideas?


Hi simonecavana

You could send it to sony it costs $150 to repair,takes 4-6 weeks..

You could try soft restart.
Press the power button on the PS3 you will hear a beep noise straight away but don't let go yet! Still hold the power button for a second beep then let go...
Its sounds like its a overheating issue you could repair yourself and repair guides are available on ebay but not sure if its a very easy job to take on hope this info helps cheers nikki

Please rate my answer.Thanks for using FixYa.

When i turn my ps3 on everything works but in 2-5 minutes it will beep ,the screen will turn off and the blue light turns red and blinks for a while..what do i do?



If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

PlayStation 3 red light problem, but in most cases it comes down to the system overheating. The more it overheats the more damage is created internally to the motherboard and other functioning components...

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. You can also youtube "how to fix disk error on ps3" and people will should you how to do these stated steps.

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.

I cant start up my console


Your system has overheated. The thermal compound has heated and moved away from the CPU/GPU and the heat sync keep the heat from being dissipated via the heat sync. Eventually you will get the YLOD which is the equivalent of the Xbox 360 RROD. This is due to heat sysnc problems. Your CPU and GPU will more than likely need to be reflowed. I got the YLOD on my PS3 around the first of March 09. I also fixed my PS3 in about an hour. I have had no problems since. You can slow the YLOD but i dont believe it can be stopped. It seems it will eventually happen to all PS3's. One tip do not stand the PS3 on its side keep flat. This will help keep the thermal compound from moving as much when it heats up. Also i run a home based computer repair business in southern California. Feel free to email me at dwdpcrepair@gmail.com.
