Let's start by trying the most simple solutions. It is usually the correct one.

It is usually a sign of over heating. Have you tried to let it cool down and turn the console off for a few hours?

If this doesn't work, you may have to test the drive for the PS3 by using another one.

1- Disconnect the PS3 from the internet.
2- Turn the standby switch off so the red light turns off too, then you turn the system back on
3- Then place your finger on the power button for a total of 4 beeps to access the recovery menu. It might not work on the first attempt but it will on the second.
4- The display will instruct you to connect your controller to the PS3 and press the enter button. A list of menus will appear on your display. The choices are as follows: Restart System, Restore Default Settings, Restore File System, Rebuild data base, Restore PS3
5- Select Restore Default Settings.

Our service agreement just ran out and now our playstation 3 will not start up, it turns on witha green flash goes to yellow and then flashes red, can you help.


It's called the Yellow Light of Death by the gaming world.

There's nothing I'd recommend a user doing to fix this problem yourself. It's best to have Sony sort it out.

Try a video reset on the system, turn the system off so just the red light is on then hold your finger on the power button till you hear two beeps and it shuts. Then turn the system back on. If this does not work try.

Red flashing light is an over heating issue. Try unplugging and leaving for a while if not take a look at this. http://ps3.qj.net/Possible-PS3-flashing-red-light-fix-from-MXACE/pg/49/aid/75721
