When I turn the PS3 on the green light goes on and then in a few seconds it turns to like yellow for like second and the flashes in red...

If the yellow light comes on when you turn on your ps3 then you have yellow light of death. This is bad because it means your ps3 has over heated and the chips have lost connection with the board. So to be able to play it (3 options) you would have to get a new one (what i did), fix your ps3(VERY HARD) You have to have lots of tools but you can do this if you search around for a guide cause i do not know how to and its very hard (im sorry) or (Easy but COSTLY) sending it to sony for 150$ repair. Sony's repair is garented because i know for a fact that they have a big exspensive machine that does it for them but you will get a new hard drive which means lets start all over. Im sorry for your loss

Good Luck and Happy Gaming-Koscoe

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light

With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

PS3 stopped during play, now won't stay on.

Press and Hold your PS3 power button for at least 6 seconds and see if it beeps twice.... Make sure you have your composite jacks(Red, White, Yellow) hooked up to your PS3 and TV in order to see diplay and hear sound.
This will reset your PS3, but you will still keep all your data!
Good Luck!
