My ps3 turned off during a game, when you try and turn it on the light on the power switch goes green for about 3 seconds then switches off again and has a red flashing light


Your PS3's problems are actually being caused by a connection error between the hard drive and motherboard. Without a correctly working hard drive connection your PS3 is unable to function and goes into shutdown mode, with the flashing red light warning.

So in order to fix the blinking red light on your PS3 you will need to repair the connection between the HDD and the motherboard.There is actually a rather simple way that you can do this yourself; while your PS3 console is switched off, locate the hard drive enclosure on the end of your console. Remove the plastic cover plate, then using a screwdriver unscrew the hard drive itself from its socket. Carefully remove it completely, then put it back in again. Tighten the holding screw, then restart your PS3

Red light flashing


With the older FAT PS3, if you turn off the system from the main switch in the back then back ON. The red light should stop flashing. But if you do this and Power On again. Watch the color of the light. If it goes from red to yellow then flashing red light. Then this is the YLOD = Yellow Light Of Death. This can only be fixed by shipping it back to Sony ($150.00) or void the warranty and take the system apart to reflow the motherboard. There are guides on Youtube if you have the right tools. I have done the reflow many of times.

I switch my ps3 on and start to play a game and then sfter about 10 mins it switces itself off and a red light flashes, then the same happens again after i switch it on. could it be overheated?


sure, it can. try cleaning your coolers : turn the on off switch behind the console OFF, then hold the eject button and , HOLDING THE EJECT BUTTON,switch the on off key ON (behind the system). it will clean your coolers.

Solid red light, flashes green when i turn it on then it dies.


Pretty much the only thing worth trying is starting the PS3 without the hard drive.

If it doesn't work it's more than likely a GPU problem that only Sony can fix.

Either way check out my guide here for tips and details.

Red flashing light on ps3


When the light flashes red and you ALSO see the green light on too this indicates that the system is getting hot and you need to switch off and let it cool down.

if you switch on get the beeps see yellow light briefly then flashing red only this indicates failure.

The system has shut itself off to stop further damage ..... supposedly caused by getting hot .. maybe fan failed .... only thing that can be done is to contact Sony for repair or replacement.

I know this post is old but thought the info could help others ...... I hope you returned your PS3.
