PS3 beeped & shut down.. will not stay lit green .. keeps beeping then turns red.. I unplugged & replugged but no luck.. I cant get my game to reject,either


PS3 owners refer to this as the 'Yellow Light of Death' or 'YLOD'. It's quite common. The problem is caused by poor solder joints (due to overheating) on the motherboard and degrading heat sink compound on the fan.

Downloaded update, next day I got the blinking red light


Mate if you turn your PS3 off when the hard drive is still operating or the power shuts of while playing a game and the PS3 is collecting or writing data to your hard drive, it will most definitely corrupt or even destroy your hard drive it is very common in PC's to.
Hint:
1. Do not shut down your PS3 while it is saving a game or collecting info from the hard drive. Rather quit the game then press your off key with one quick touch and let go of it, it will shut down when it is ready or hold down on the remote's PS button and select switch off system on screen.
2. If you live in a area where the power shuts off for no reason please please get your self a computer UPS(UN-INTERRUPTED POWER SUPPLY).
3. If you replace the hard drive make sure you buy a good quality hard drive like a Western Digital or Seagate.

When I turn on my PS3 it turns yellow then immediately shuts down


Its the yellow light of death, its an over heated ps3. Theres not much you can do about it, take it to sony or a computer fixing shop and get the console fixed. These can be fixed at a price of around £35. If you cant get that, get a new ps3, its what i had to do.

Playstation 3 at power on, light becomes white then blinks red


Probably and overheating problem. Here's what I suggest:

Try using some compressed air and cleaning the vents out below. If that doesn't work then you'll have to remove and replace the thermal compound on the GPU and CPU.

You might also consider a System Restore if you can do it before it shuts off.

No sound or picture for ps3


You both sound like you have an over heating issue. Mostly if the fan does not stay on. The PS3 always has a fan on, just the first setting is very quiet. Do you feel any air being blown out of the back (where the power cord goes in)?
